If you are looking for the perfect poolside spritzer, look no further! You actually donâ€™t even need a pool to enjoy this pineappleÂ margarita, just a warm sunny day. This recipe is perfect if you have a pineapple that is ripe and juicy, or you just want to finish off that bottle of tequila. It is super quick and easy to make, and will have you dreaming of that next tropical vacation that you know you deserve! For those who like a touch of spice – try slicing up fresh jalapeÃ±o and adding it in!
If you want to get double use of that pretty pineapple- check out this post on how to take that pineapple shell, and turn it into a tropical flower arrangement. The only thing missing will be the beach and a cute cabana boy.
3.5 oz. pineapple juice – fresh or from a can
2.5 oz. agave silver tequila (or less, depending how strong you want it)
1 lime- cut into thick wedges
3 oz. club soda
Â¼ fresh jalapeno (optional)
Â½ cup sugar – for rim
Take one of the lime wedges and rub along the rim of your glass. Dip the lime rim into the sugar (or salt, if youâ€™re not in to that). Pour your tequila, pineapple juice and 2 juiced lime wedges into a shaker. Shake until mixed. If you are using fresh jalapenos, go ahead and add them to your sugar rimmed up, and add ice. Pour the tequila mix over ice, and add the club soda. Taste, and enjoy.
