Fresh-style Pineapple Cilantro Margarita
This fresh-style margarita is bursting with pineapple and cilantro flavors. An unexpected combination that is thirst quenching and light.
Servings 1 cocktail
- 1/4 cup fresh Pineapple large pieces
- 1 tablespoon packed fresh Cilantro
- 1 1/2 ounce Blanco or Silver Tequila
- 1/2 ounce Agave Nectar
- 1 ounce Pineapple Juice
- 3/4 ounce freshly squeezed Lime Juice
In a shaker or quart-size Mason jar, combine the fresh pineapple, cilantro and tequila. Muddle to break down the pineapple and cilantro.
Add the agave, pineapple juice, lime juice and a handful of ice. Place the lid on the shaker/jar, and shake vigorously for a minute to fully combine all ingredients.
Strain into an Old Fashioned glass with fresh cubed or crushed ice. Garnish with a piece of pineapple and sprig of cilantro.
Using a wide mouth quart-size Mason jar is great for muddling and shaking the ingredients if a shaker is not available.
Shaking for a good minute allows the ingredients to fully mix and for the pineapple and cilantro to break down and infuse into the liquids.
