These pineapple margarita mocktails make for the most refreshing drink! This recipe is super simple, only requiring just 5 minutes. We love to make these margs all summer long, especially for Taco Tuesday!
For the mocktail:
- Frozen pineapple chunks-I like the frozen chunks for Costco. They sell the chunks in a big bag and I find that it is the best bang for your buck. You do not have to use frozen, but if you want your margarita to be frozen, it is best.
- Ice-to keep the pineapple thick and prevent it from melting!
- Lime-Fresh lime to complement the sweet pineapple!
- Jalapeños slices-cut real fine.
- Mint-Fresh mint leaves. The best way to get the most out of your mint, is by patting it before using it in a dish prior to eating/ drinking.
- Red pepper flakes and sea salt rim-To add an extra kick.
How to make pineapple margarita mocktails:
- The margarita is super simple!
- First, place the pineapple, ice and lime juice in the food processor and hit the blend button. Blend for 3 or so minutes until smooth. You will need to push down the sides of the mixture with a rubber spatula throughout to get everything mixed in.
- Once the drink is made, take a lime and move it around the rim of the cup. Combine the sea salt and red pepper flakes and run the rim of the glass over the salt and pepper mixture.
- Pour the drink in the cup and garnish with mint and/or jalapeños.
What to serve with these pineapple margarita mocktails:
- We love drinking our margaritas with all things including Mexican food.
- They especially go great with sheet pan shrimp tacos, buffalo shrimp tacos and halibut fish tacos.
