Pineapple Margarita Ingredients 

Pineapple juice 

Pineapple juice is the star of this margarita, but there are different types of pineapple juice you can use. 
  • Frozen pineapple juice: Pineapple juice is available frozen in small canisters and packages. When using frozen pineapple juice, thaw out the juice beforehand and prepare it based on the instructions on the package. 
  • Canned pineapple juice: Pineapple juice is also available in simple cans, which can be easily stored in cupboards. 
  • Jarred pineapple juice: Typically found in refrigerated aisles, Jarred pineapple juice tends to be of a higher quality. 
  • Fresh pineapple juice: There's nothing better than pineapples that have been freshly juiced, but it's understandable if you don't have them on hand. One standard pineapple can yield between 1 cup and 1 1/2 cups of juice. Simply strain out any pulp that is left over after blending, and you'll have a delicious drink
