Tequila Pineapple Cocktail is a unique blend of pineapple juice and tequila! This sunny pineapple juice cocktail is tart, tangy, bright, and bold.

Cocktails are so hard to name. The smallest ingredients or amounts and you have a completely different cocktail.

Tequila Pineapple Cocktail

I like my cocktails just like I like my other recipes: simple.

Of all the tequila-mixed drinks out there, this has got to be one of the easiest ones to make. You simply add everything to a glass and stir. Additionally, you can shake in a cocktail shaker and strain into a martini glass, whichever way you prefer.

Because this tequila cocktail is straightforward, you want to use the best possible ingredients. I recommend squeezing the orange juice yourself. However, you can take a shortcut and get a fresh juice like Simply Orange that’s not from concentrate.

I use both Bianca tequila, which is a clear tequila, and Patron Citronge. Patron Citronge has a fresh, light orange flavor.

You also want to try this lovely Spicy Paloma.

Make them for Memorial Day, the Fourth of July, your next pool party or BBQ, or just because.

How to rim a glass

  1. Start with a shallow plate or bowl of water, lime juice, or lemon juice. Dip the rim of your glass into the liquid. Alternatively, you could cut a lime or lemon wedge and moisten the rim.
  2. In step two, you want to evenly dip the rim into the sugar, salt, or whatever you’re riming the glass with. I have used non-pareils and chocolate. Depending on what you’re serving, you may want to use coconut or sprinkles. Get creative.
  3. Carefully craft your cocktail and pour it into your glass.

You can do a sugar rim or salt rim (or neither) with this Pineapple Margarita. Whichever one you choose, zest the lime and mix it into the sugar or salt before slicing it into wheels for a garnish. This adds another layer of flavor.
