This easy, 5-minute Pineapple Margarita recipe is a go-to for any occasion! A tropical spin on the classic recipe, they're refreshing, fruity, and have just the right amount of sweetness.


Units Scale
  • 1 1/2 ounces reposado tequila
  • 1/2 ounce Triple Sec (or another orange-flavored liqueur)
  • 4 ounces pineapple juice
  • 1/2 ounce simple syrup or agave syrup
  • 1/2 ounce lemon juice
  • 1/2 ounce lime juice
  • Salt and lime wedges for rim


  1. To rim the glass, run a lime wedge around the entire rim, or dip the rim in agave syrup, then dip in kosher salt to coat the rim.
  2. Add the tequila, triple sec, pineapple juice, simple syrup, lime and lemon juice to a cocktail shaker filled halfway with ice. Shake vigorously for 10-15 seconds, then strain into rimmed glass filled with ice and serve.


Tequila: We use tequila reposado (slightly aged), but you can also use tequila blanco (silver tequila).

Triple Sec: You can substitute with any orange liqueur of choice, including Grand Marnier or Cointreau.

Pineapple juice: 100% pineapple juice (not from concentrate) is best in this recipe.

Freshly squeezed lemon and lime juice is always best in cocktails.

Make a big batch of pineapple margaritas in a pitcher: 6-10x the proportions listed in the recipe above and add to a large pitcher. Stir or whisk well, then refrigerate until ready to serve. Be sure to mix well again before serving to ensure all ingredients are evenly incorporated!
