Pineapple Cilantro Margarita – A Tequila Cocktail

Pineapple Cilantro Margarita

A refreshing combination of pineapple and cilantro makes for a great pineapple margarita.



We have one rule of thumb we always follow when we celebrate Cinco de Mayo: Always have a top notch margarita or paloma in your hand! This year we decided to try out a brand new margarita using some of the fresh herbs from our garden and one of our favorite fruits, pineapple, to make the Fresh Pineapple Cilantro Margarita!

Combining two flavors commonly found in Mexican cuisine, this drink is pleasantly sweet and tart with a great herbal burst that brings images of sitting on the beaches of the Mayan Rivera sipping on drinks and eating delicious fresh salsa!

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 3 minutes
Total Time: 13 minutes
A sweet and herbal margarita perfect for sipping.


  • 1 oz simple syrup (add more if not sweet enough)
  • 1 cup fresh pineapple chunks
  • 2 oz freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 2 sprigs of cilantro (for garnish)
  • 1 1/2 oz triple sec
  • 3 oz tequila, blanco or silver
  • 2 Tbsp fresh cilantro leaves


Muddle pineapple chunks and cilantro, add tequila, triple sec, lime juice and simple syrup in a shaker.

Shake vigorously for 1 minute until combined.

Strain into a glass rimmed with salt and crushed ice.

Garnish with pineapple and a sprig of cilantro.



The herbal flavor of the cilantro cuts the sweetness of the drink, and depending how sweet your pineapple is, we added a bit of simple syrup to the ingredient list.
