Pineapple Cinnamon Margarita

Pineapple cinnamon margaritas is a little more tropical and sweet than a traditional margarita. It's easy to make and it'll easily become a margarita favorite.I always say that tequila makes either crazy or really sleepy. There’s not really an in between. I don’t drink tequila often though but I do enjoy margaritas every now and then. In my opinion, there’s nothing better than an ice-cold margarita on a really hot day. . . am I right? Anyway, I always have tequila on our bar at home but it doesn’t always get used. Once in a while though, I get the urge to make a margarita or I find a margarita recipe that’s worth sharing.

One last thing about tequila. Even though it’s not my go to liquor, I do enjoy the Paloma at Main Street Meats. It’s tequila, Jarritos grapefruit soda and salt. The best part is that it comes in an actual Jarritos bottle. So good.

OK, back to the margarita recipe.

Be sure to garnish your pineapple cinnamon margarita with fresh pineapples. Not only is it beautiful but the pineapple is delicious to eat after you've finished your drink.I found this recipe on Spicy Southern Kitchen and was intrigued because of the addition of cinnamon. I mean, let’s be honest, I was also interested because of the pineapple. You know how I feel about pineapple. Anyway, cinnamon is one of my favorite spices. I always add a little pinch of cinnamon when I make coffee in the morning. According to John, it reminds him of Christmas.

The cinnamon sugar rim adds an additional layer of flavor and is a bit of a change from a typical salted margarita.This margarita recipe is pretty easy to recreate and the flavors are just so yummy. Adding pineapple to anything automatically makes it taste tropical. The cinnamon sugar-coated rim gives the margarita a sweet flavor as opposed to salty like a typical margarita. All you need to know is that this drink is good! Traditional margaritas can be salty and tart (not a bad thing, by the way). When I order margaritas, I usually get them without the salt because the flavor is just too much for me; it intensifies the tequila. There are some occasions where I’ve gotten margaritas with salt but it’s usually because of a mistake.

I think you’ll find this margarita refreshing and pretty tasty. Let’s make it.
