After drinking the watermelon margaritas and getting some food into us. I made pineapple margaritas. But first, we let Jimmy and Bryan fruit ninja the pineapple with one of Bryan’s swords. You know, priorities. Of course, Bryan wanted us to go to the store and buy plums, apples, bananas, kiwis, and what have you to do a real fruit ninja.
Maybe one day we will do it and it will be amazing, but today is not the day.
The pineapple margarita was a little easier to make because you use actual pineapple juice instead of muddling pineapples. If you have a juicer then that can work also. I still ended up muddling the pineapple because I like eating boozy fruit.
2 pineapple chunks
4 oz pineapple juice
1 1/2 oz tequila
1/2 oz triple sec
1 tablespoon simple syrup
Muddle the pineapple chunks in the shaker.
Add pineapple juice, tequila, triple sec, and simple syrup.
Top with ice.
Shake it like a polaroid picture.
Pour into a glass filled with ice.
Garnish with a pineapple chunk.
I really loved this one. It is definitely my favorite of the two margaritas I made.
And it’s really simple to make which is always good.
The addition of the simple syrup turned the bitterness of the pineapple juice sweet, but not overly sweet.
A little way to cheat and skimp on calories which can be helpful for diabetics – after you make the margarita, water the drink down. It still packs a punch but you get more drink for less calories. I actually did it with the watermelon margarita first because I noticed mine was a little low in the happiness department and ended up adding like 4 ounces of water in it and was surprised how it still tasted good.
So if you want to skinny your fresh fruit margaritas up – just add water.
