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. 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.
