Grilled Pineapple Margaritas are a little bit smoky and a little bit sweet! Grilling the fresh pineapple takes these margaritas up a notch and make happy hour incredibly delicious!
Are you ready for some cocktails?! Okay, I know it's Monday and I might be jumping the gun on happy hour but I literally could NOT wait to share these with you. Plus, Cinco de Mayo is this weekend and I actually have another margarita recipe to share with you between now and then so I hope you're ready for lotsa tequila!
These Grilled Pineapple Margaritas just might be on repeat on our patio this summer. I mean, grilled fruit of any kind is just amazing, right?! It brings out even more sweetness and adds just the right amount of smokiness.
Here's how we make the margaritas. First you have to go out and buy a big 'ol pineapple. I heard somewhere one time from someone or something (aka not sure if this is super credible) but apparently pineapples are ripe and ready when their leaves are picked easily. So there's that.
So then you take your (hopefully) ripe pineapple, chop off the stem, and then cut it into circles. You'll want to cut the skin off all of them but one. That lone one with the skin you'll use for a pretty garnish!
So you grill your pineapple, then puree it with some fresh lime juice, and strain all of the yummy juices out for the margaritas. Then combine the pineapple lime juice with tequila, triple sec, and agave for a little bit more sweetness. These aren't super sweet, though! They're perfectly refreshing, a little sweet, and SO, so tasty!
