Love margaritas but looking to add a fun twist on a traditional margarita recipe? This pineapple cilantro marg is the perfect mix to please even the most discerning margarita connoisseurs. The more tart citrus (thanks to fresh orange and lime juice) compliments the sweetness of the pineapple juice, and the cilantro adds another layer of flavor that goes hand in hand with taco night. For those of you looking for a fun date night idea that includes staying in, make a pitcher of these delish pineapple cilantro margaritas, add a side of chips and guac and boom! Date night. Okay, maybe you want to have some tacos too? I know we would! The good news is that the cilantro is already chopped since you added it to your margarita batch.
Make a Pitcher of Pineapple Cilantro Margaritas:
- Tequila (we used silver but use whatever kind you prefer)
- Grand Marnier (we used 1 mini bottle)
- Sour Mix (we prefer George’s margarita mix because it uses fresh lime juice and agave nectar)
- 3 Limes
- 1 Orange (or a clementine)
- 1 small can of Dole’s pineapple juice (the individual size)
- Small bunch of chopped cilantro
Step by Step Instructions to Make The Perfect Pitcher of Pineapple Cilantro Margaritas
- Fill 1/4 of pitcher with tequila
- Add 3/4 bottle of sour mix (standard bottle not a handle bottle)
- Add one small can of pineapple juice
- Squeeze one orange and add juice to pitcher. If you don’t have oranges, add 1/3 cup of orange juice
- Squeeze two limes and add juice to pitcher
- Add one mini bottle of Grand Marnier OR 2 oz Grand Marnier (you can substitute Triple Sec or any orange liquer)
- Add a 1/4 cup of freshly chopped cilantro.
