Take your regular margarita and throw it out the window.  There’s nothing like this grilled pineapple margarita recipe that I found on The Brewer and The Baker blog.  This past Summer I became a fruit-grilling fiend but never thought to put it in a cocktail before.  So delish!

Ingredients

  • 4.5 oz silver tequila
  • 12 oz margarita mix
  • 3 oz orange liqueur
  • 2 Tbsp juices from grilled pineapple*
  • 1 1-inch thick slice of grilled fresh pineapple, plus more for garnish*
  • Crushed ice
  • Salt for rim (optional)
  • * The pineapple should be grilled and chilled so plan ahead. If you aren’t using a slice of leftover, already-chilled pineapple, give yourself an extra hour in prep time.

Instructions

  1. To grill a pineapple, remove the husk, slice into ~1-inch thick rings, and place on a preheated grill.
  2. Cook ~4-5 minutes each side until nicely caramelized.
  3. Transfer the pineapple (and all accumulated juices) to a bowl and place in the fridge until cold.
  4. Add the tequila, margarita mix, liqueur, the pineapple juice from the bowl, and a slice of grilled pineapple to a blender.
  5. Blend on high for ~1 minutes until smooth.
  6. (You can strain here if light pulp bothers you – I did not.)
  7. Pour over crushed ice and garnish with small chunks of grilled pineapple, if desired.
