Frozen Pineapple Margarita

With Cinco de Mayo coming up this weekend, I thought it would be nice to put a spin on a margarita. Well, that’s partly true. I really had this poor, sad, forgotten pineapple just sitting all alone on my counter (we can address my produce addiction another time). Now, I’m not telling you to use a rotten pineapple, but if it’s just a bit too ripe, cut it up into cubes, lay them out on a baking sheet lined with waxed paper and throw them in the freezer until frozen. From there you can use some to whip up this drink then put the rest in a zipper bag and back into the freezer for future margaritas or smoothies. Cheers!

Frozen Pineapple Margarita

about 6 ice cubes
2 C. frozen cut pineapple
1 C. orange juice
1 – 2 T. honey or agave (depending on the sweetness of your pineapple)
juice and zest of one lime
1/2 c. tequila
1 T. triple sec
turbinado sugar for serving
lime wedge for serving

Put all ingredients into the blender. Blend on high speed for about one minute. If you’d like to rim the glasses with the turbinado, fill one shallow dish with water and one with some sugar in it. Dip the glass into the water. Let the excess drip off, then dip into the sugar. Pour the margarita into chilled margarita glasses and garnish with a wedge of lime.

Serves about 4 margaritas.

      Thanks so much Katie! I always seem to have a pineapple on the counter a bit too long…so cutting it up and freezing is such a great way to use it up.

    Now this is something I can’t wait to make for myself…one of my favorite parts is the salt LOL
    Lets just hope I don’t make this too often.
