Hi everyone! My lovely boyfriend, Joe, is the resident mixologist around our house, so whenever I am craving a new drink, he is the one to research the best recipes and he always comes up with something delicious for us to try. I’m giving him his own segment of the blog to highlight some of his best drinks recipes and we’ve dubbed it Joe’s Drink Cart. I hope you’ll find a new favorite tipple in the coming weeks.
Joe and I moved in together about 3 years ago, and ever since, he’s been making these sweet, tart, and refreshing Pineapple Margaritas. Anytime we have a taco night, or any sort of Mexican-ish food, these margaritas are also on the menu. He started from Ina Garten’s recipe and changed it to suit our tastebuds, and I think what he’s come up with is simply amazing. These are the margaritas I crave when I order one at a bar, and I usually leave that bar disappointed because most use a pre-made mix for their margs. Not here though!
We’ve sized it up to serve four people, but it can easily be halved of it’s just you and a friend (or if you’d like to make 2 for yourself, no judgement here!).
Pineapple Margaritas (Makes 4)
6 ounces freshly squeezed lime juice
12 ounces silver tequila
24 ounces pineapple juice
1 ounce simple syrup
- Combine all of the ingredients in a pitcher. Taste; add additional simple syrup if the mixture is not sweet enough to your liking.
- Wipe the rim your margarita glasses with a lime wedge, then coat the rim with salt.
- Add ice to each glass and pour the margarita mixture over top. Garnish with a lime wedge, if desired.
