Last Updated on August 11, 2021 by The Noms

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


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!

Pineapple 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!


With just a dash of sweetness with the simple syrup, this one is a great sipper!

A sweet and herbal margarita perfect for sipping. This pineapple margarita recipe is so tasty!


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


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.
