A plain Margarita is one of my favorite cocktails, but I find I enjoy flavored variations of them even more. The sky is the limit when it comes to Margarita variations. I love Jalapeno Watermelon Margaritas, Pepper Jelly Margaritas, Tangerine Margaritas, and Blackberry Margaritas. And these Pineapple-Cinnamon Margaritas are a favorite as well.
Pineapple-Cinnamon Margaritas are a little bit sweeter than your typical Margarita. The pineapple gives it a wonderful tropical flavor.
They’re no more difficult to make than a regular Margarita, they just have Pineapple juice added to them. The glass rims are coated in a sugar-cinnamon mixture instead of salt. A touch of cinnamon goes so well with the pineapple flavor.
If you want more cinnamon flavor, you can add a little to the Margarita mixture.
I love having superfine sugar or caster sugar on hand for making cocktails. It magically dissolves with just a few stirs and there’s no need to go to the trouble of making simple syrup.
With their tropical flavor, these Pineapple-Cinnamon Margaritas will quench your thirst all summer long.
