Skinny Pineapple Margarita

Let's take the classic margarita cocktail to a whole new level with this skinny pineapple margarita and Lobos 1707 Tequila

Margarita Day is coming up! It's essential to know how to craft the perfect, refreshing, and delicious cocktail that will have everyone begging for more. 
All you need is a fun new recipe (I've got you covered!) and a bottle (...or make it two!) of premium Tequila.

Today I'm sharing what I can honestly say is my new favorite twist to the classic margarita:  the skinny pineapple margarita, simply made with fruit juices and Lobos 1707 premium tequila

This is not your traditional margarita recipe, but one extra way to enjoy your tequila. 
Think of the classic margarita with a healthy twist. A perfect blend of tequila, pineapple, orange, and lime juices. Light and fruity. Refreshing and naturally sweet. With just the right amount of alcohol to keep the party going.
I'm sure that once you taste this margarita, it will be your new favorite too!
Given that the only alcohol in this recipe is tequila, you will need to use a high-quality bottle. Just like this one!
Lobos 1707 is a premium, award-winning tequila, and mezcal, beating out hundreds at the 2022 San Francisco Spirits Competition by taking home Best in Class Reposado.
Lobos 1707 is special because of the extra step to finish the tequila in Pedro Ximenez Sherry Wine casks which gives it an elevated taste. 
Pick up a bottle at your local Bevmo,  or you can purchase it online here. 
Because of its smooth and complex flavor profile, this Lobos 1707 Joven tequila is the perfect base for a delicious margarita. But also great alone or added to other cocktails.
Its balanced body, with slight balsamic tones and strong notes of freshly cut Blue Weber agave, makes this tequila perfect for Bloody Mary or Paloma. 
Today, I'm pairing it with orange, pineapple, and lime juice to create this refreshing skinny pineapple margarita. 

This margarita is not only delicious but also "skinny". No added sugar, just the naturally sweet pineapple juice. 
This drink is ready in a snap. Start by preparing the glasses: moisten the rim of the glass with a lime wedge, and dip into coarse salt or, my favorite, a mix of sugar and salt! Fill with ice. 
In a cocktail shaker, add 1 cup of ice, tequila, pineapple juice,  and lime juice and shake well until the outside of the shaker is very cold.  Add some simple syrup if you'd like it sweeter. Mix some more and strain into the prepared glasses. 
Decorate your glass with pineapple and lime slices. Simple as that. Cheers!
