#1 – Pineapple Crush Margarita

If you are looking for a superb way to infuse some of the flavors of the summer into your holiday parties, make sure to grab a bottle of our Pineapple Jalapeño Margarita for this recipe. While apples might get all of the love, pineapples continue to have a place in those holiday celebrations. This recipe is both tart, sweet, and spicy. It is an excellent cocktail because it packs a powerful punch, thanks to the pineapple flavor. However, it is not too overwhelming, unlike other fruity margaritas. The Pineapple Crush Margarita perfectly balances the pineapple’s fruity hints and the jalapeno’s spicy notes. 

You will need the following:

  • 1 ounce of Rancho La Gloria Ready-To-Drink Pineapple Jalapeño Margarita
  • 1 ounce of real pineapple syrup
  • ¾ ounces of fresh lime juice
  • 6 to 8 mint leaves
  • Four pineapple chunks
  • 1½ ounces of sparkling white wine, such as Prosecco

For this recipe, you will want a cocktail shaker. Take the pineapple chunks and muddle them with the mint. After that, add the remaining ingredients together with ice. Make sure to stir and strain into a glass. Add the sparkling white wine as a topper and garnish with dehydrated lime. If you want a more sweet flavor, use ripe pineapples for the drink.
