How to Serve

We love to serve Pineapple Margaritas in margarita glasses, which provide some aesthetic flair. While salt is commonly used to coat the rim of a glass for a margarita, rimming the glass with sugar for a pineapple margarita provides a sweet touch with every drink that pairs perfectly with the tart pineapple and tequila. A pineapple wedge garnish is optional, but oh so cute!
