Pineapple Margarita

Happy Friday!!

Pineapple Margarita

I have wanted to learn to can and took the opportunity to purchase jars in various sizes for Summer Fest.   Since that recipe I haven’t canned , but I have used the jars.

For margaritas.  It’s an addiction what can I say?

In late May I posted a margarita recipe for pineapple/cucumber which was adapted from my favorite agua fresca.  This week I craved a crisp pineapple flavor dotted with a speck of lime.

Tequila Blanco is ideal for summer margaritas.  A Blanco has a clean taste giving your fresh fruit juice center stage. 

Fresh pineapple juice is preferred for this margarita.  I know I continue to stress the use of fresh juice, but it really makes all the difference.  In choosing a fresh pineapple look for brightly colored, deep green leaves.

Avoid any with bruises, soft spots or mold.   Choose a pineapple with some weight for it’s size.  I have found pre cut pineapple at my local grocery store.  This can save you time without the hassle of coring the pineapple yourself.

    I have to say I love canning with my jars, but I also love margaritas especially with pineapple. You have no idea I would like a margarita at the moment. Will have to try one of your variations, you have so many good ones.

    Drinking out of canning jars feels so cool :) Especially when the drink is a margarita. I love your pineapple twist…and that list of flavor options! Time for a Mexican night and margaritas for sure!
