Ingredients
  

  • 1 medium orange juiced (approx. 3 oz of juice)
  • 1 lime juiced (approx. 1 oz of juice)
  • 4 oz pineapple juice
  • 5-6 oz tequila blanco
  • optional: 1 oz simple syrup

Instructions
 

  • If you’re going to have a salted rim, run a lime wedge around the rim of your glasses and dip into a small dish filled with 3-4 Tablespoons of salt. Set your glasses aside.
  • Juice the orange and lime. If desired, strain into your cocktail shaker.
  • Place the remainder of the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice and shake vigorously until the outside of the shaker is very cold (approximately 15 seconds).
  • Divide between two glasses filled with ice and enjoy!

Notes

*Add a salted rim, or a sugar-salt rim, for a little added fun!  To add a rim to your margarita glasses, run a lime wedge around the rim of your glasses and dip into a small dish filled with 3-4 Tablespoons of salt, sugar, or a combination of salt and sugar
 
*Need to add a little sweetness to take the edge off of this bright and citrusy marg? Add a little simple syrup! I’d recommend trying your pineapple cocktail after shaking it up, and if a little sweetness would be preferred, stir in ½ oz of simple syrup to your glass.
 
*Find a blanco tequila you like for the most enjoyable margarita! Since this skinny pineapple margarita is made with fresh juices and not a lot else, using a good quality tequila is extra important.
