Spicy Pineapple Margaritas Recipe Is the Ultimate Easy-to-Prep Cocktail for a Crowd

This recipe is a refreshing drink that guests will love as it's full of tropical fruitiness with a peppery kick!

The perfect sip to help you beat the heat comes in the form of this Spicy Pineapple Margaritas recipe. It combines canned pineapple juice with tequila and triple sec for a fruity yet spicy taste. Fresh lime juice brings these contrasting flavors together while providing a bright citrus zing. Garnished with fresh ingredients, like jalapeño slices and fresh mint, this drink delivers the right balance of sweet and heat with each sip!

While tequila is a go-to ingredient for margaritas, you can substitute it with a similar alcohol: mezcal. This alcohol boasts a smoky and complex flavor, so it will take your cocktail to the next level. If you’re not a fan of pineapple juice, try swapping it for mango, orange or grapefruit varieties. Ultimately, making margaritas for a crowd doesn’t have to be tricky thanks to this recipe — which preps easy and can be tweaked to your liking!
