How do you like your Margarita? I prefer mine frozen, rather than on ice, and fruity, sweet, and ligerita which means not too boozy, but balanced. Balance really is key to a good Margarita. This frozen, pineapple Margarita is all that and more.

Making Margaritas is fun, super fast, and easy. There are just a few basic ingredients, but if you want to add some fruit, it will take yours to another level.

When Kate from Hola Jalapeño invited me to be part of Margarita Week I said, “yes” immediately, and ran to my freezer to check out what I had there. I already knew I wanted to make a frozen, fruity variation.

After considering all the frozen fruit in my freezer, I decided to go with pineapple. You’ve probably noticed I really like pineapple, as you can see from my pineapple ginger paletas, pineapple-coconut agua fresca and pineapple cucumber gazpacho in this blog.

So why not freeze some fresh pineapple, buy a bag of frozen pineapple, or use a fresh pineapple with lots of ice and try this one out!
