Pineapple jalapeno cilantro margaritas

I love blended margaritas. There aren’t too many SF restaurants that serve them, but luckily they’re super easy to make at home.

I especially love margaritas with real fruit. I’ve had plenty of strawberry and mango margs, but with Cinco de Mayo around the corner, I really wanted to try one with pineapple.

This one is unique and refreshing and not too sweet. The jalapeno adds a little kick and the cilantro brings freshness. If you want, you can add a bit of sweetener, like agave or simple syrup, depending on how ripe your pineapple is.

Tip: For super sweet frozen pineapples, let a fresh pineapple get super ripe, then cut into chunks and freeze. This comes in super handy for smoothies or blended drinks like this.

Serve with a side of chips, salsa, and some J Balvin.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups frozen pineapple chunks
  • 2 cups ice
  • 1 cup tequila
  • 1/2 cup orange liqueur such as Triple Sec, Grand Marnier, or Cointreau
  • 1 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 jalapeno
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • Chile lime salt (optional)

Directions

  • Combine pineapple chunks, ice, lime, tequila, orange liqueur, jalapeno, and cilantro in blender. Blend until smooth.
  • Wet glasses and dip in chile lime salt.
  • Pour margaritas into glasses and serve immediately.
