Ginger Pineapple Margarita

Published On May 2, 2013 | By Ken Leung | Cocktails, Tequila

Margaritas, anyone? This is a multiple-choice cocktail in which all possibilities seem to be appealing. The type of tequila, the fruit flavors, the ice, and whether it’s salted or not is all up to you. But, this Ginger-Pineapple Margarita can certainly serve as a guide.

I’ve seen many recipes for fruit flavored margaritas, but they’re usually made with fresh fruit, offering a refreshing, but not particularly strong, taste. This Ginger-Pineapple Margarita, on the other hand, intensifies the flavor of the pineapple. Cooking the fruit with sugar and ginger not only concentrates the flavor, but it also adds depth. And the fresh ginger presents itself in the background as a surprise element–a subtle dose of heat at the end of each sip.

This margarita does take a bit of preparation, but you can make a big batch of the Pineapple-Ginger Pureé and freeze it ahead of time. Then, you’re set for the spring and perhaps even the beginning of summer. For now, it’ll be perfect for Cinco de Mayo.

  2. Love it! Must try your Ginger-Pineapple Margarita soon, Ken! Perfect for summer. I am just enamored with fresh ginger and working with it this week for a paleo dessert. By the way, just created a Coconut Ginger Lime Margarita (posted on May 3rd) with a coconut water-based simple syrup infused with ginger and whole black peppercorns for subtle heat. Great minds think alike with a Ginger Margarita! xo P.S. Since Russell is always trying to BBQ his cocktails (haha!), I hope he will try my cocktail. The flavor profile of the simple syrup, sweetened with agave nectar, really is reminiscent of BBQ. In fact, I could not stop sipping it from my tasting spoon! :)
