Pineapple Cilantro Lime Margarita

Pineapple Cilantro Lime Margarita created by rexm210

On a recent trip to New Orleans, I got a delicious margarita at El Gato Negro in the French Quarter, a Pineapple Cilantro Lime Margarita. I had to come home and try and recreate it since it's a bit of a hike to NOLA from Ohio! While it may not be exact, I find this to be very close and VERY good! Perfect for a hot summer day!

    I live very close to this restaurant and fell in love with this margarita as well. This recipe is a great starting point but I added orange juice to mine. I noticed that the color of the mix at the restaurant is much more of a rich golden yellow rather than a light green yellow and figured that was the difference. When I brought them to a party, my friends thought I picked them up from the restaurant. This was a much cheaper and just as tasty version of the restaurant margarita. Thanks for sharing.
