I love a good cocktail, and margaritas are at the top of my list! I like my margaritas fresh, unsweetened, shaken over ice in a short glass with a half salt rim. Can you tell I’m a bartenders dream… kidding.
The thing I love of this particular margarita is the twist of adding pineapple juice. It’s delicious and totally customizable to your taste. I love to sip on this with my favourite Mexican food. Chips, salsa, guacamole, tacos, enchiladas and fajitas.
Now I’m so thirsty, is it 5 o’clock? So whats your favourite margarita?
- 1 Ounce Tequila (silver or reposado are best)
- 1/2 Ounce Cointreau
- 1 Ounce 100% Pineapple Juice (no added sugar)
- 1 Lime, juiced
- Optional: Salt or sugar for rim, and agave syrup
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice, and tequila, cointreau, pineapple juice, lime juice and agave if using. Shake until the cocktail shaker becomes very cold.
Rub the inside of the lime along the rim of your glass. Dip the glass into salt or sugar. Fill the glass with ice, and pour drink over the ice.
