Big Batch Pineapple Margaritas 3

August is quite a funky month.

It’s still summer and sunshine, but some kids are already back to school.

Fall sports are officially underway, yet families are still on beach vacations.

It’s a hodgepodge fusion of lunch boxes and backpacks mixed with ice cream trucks and sandy flip flops.

So while we’ve got back-to-school kickoffs and parent/teacher meetings next week, we’re simultaneously prepping for summer gatherings from now through to Labor Day weekend.

This is the month I lean into simple with end-of-summer parties. I’ve been going with burgers ‘n brats on the grill for all the gatherings. Nothing fancy schmancy. Plenty of roasted garlic hummus and chunky guacamole with chips. Maybe an easy one-bowl chocolate cake, if I’m feeling like a go-getter that day.

And if someone mentions BYOB, I’m all about mixing up some Big Batch Pineapple Margaritas.

A jug of Big Batch Pineapple Margaritas can easily be made ahead of time and chilled until ready to serve…

I just adore big batch, make-ahead margaritas. Pretty much everyone appreciates a tropical, refreshing margarita.

It’s an easy crowd pleaser that takes almost no effort to make. Just combine, stir, and chill.

No need to play mixologist on the spot. I’d much rather be mingling with friends than messing up on their drinks while they wait around.

[I’m that person who can’t chat and measure at the same time. I also can’t talk and drive at the same time.]

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 16 servings (about 1 gallon)
Author: Amy Dong


  • 1 ½ quart 6 cups pure pineapple juice
  • 3 cups pure orange juice
  • 1 ½ cups freshly squeezed lime juice, approx 10 large limes
  • 2 ½ cups tequila
  • 2 ½ cups triple sec, or more tequila
  • Optional: kosher salt for glass rims and fresh pineapple/lime slices for garnish


  • In a large pitcher or jug, combine all ingredients except for optional items. Stir to combine well.
  • If desired, rum rims of glasses with lime juice and dip into a small plate of kosher salt. Fill glasses with ice and serve margaritas with garnishes, if desired.


We noticed different brands of Triple Sec have vastly varying amounts of alcohol. Thus, if your brand tastes weaker, feel free to add more triple sec to the recipe. You can also replace the triple sec with more tequila instead.

    Pineapple is one of my favorite summer fruits. I bet it’s so good as a margarita too.

      • chewoutloud

      The berry sangria is a fave 🙂

    • Gil Camporazo

    Out of so many succulent fruits, pineapple is one of my favorites. It is rich in vit C. I start limiting myself of consuming this kind of fruit for it is not good for my throat. I usually get a sore throat every time I eat this one. I don’t know why.

    • franckxethee

    Pineapple margarita looks like a good mix for a drink. There’s the mix of sweet and sour in the pineapple and an added fizz by the margarita.

      • chewoutloud

      You’ve got it 🙂

    • A Busy Bees Life – Sheri

    This looks good, I have never tried one of these and I think it would be delicious and refreshing in summer. Either with or without alcohol.

    • Filiz Aydogdu

    • Tanvi Rastogi (@Tanviidotcom)

    That looks so refreshing and delicious. I am going to have to make it this weekend 🙂


    • jennadphotography

    Oh my word, I love love love Margarita’s, but I have never had a pineapple one. I am not sure if you get 100% pineapple juice in my country but I am going to find out, our summer is about to start and this would be PERFECT. if I can’t find pineapple what else i can I use?

      • chewoutloud

      How fun that summer is about to start for you! Any kind of pineapple juice blend would work. I’ve also done with mango juice blends with good results 🙂

    • Fred

    Even if it were non-alcoholic, I think this concoction (without the sec or tequila) will be good enough for a perfect pick-me-up.

      • chewoutloud

      I think so, too! 🙂

    • Vanessa

    Your pictures look amazing! I was drawn to your mango cooler, might give it a try later on today!

      • chewoutloud

      The Mango Cooler is super easy and yummy 🙂

    • chichiuguru

    • Jojo Hua

    These sound so delicious and is really getting me into the summery spirit! I don’t drink alcohol but I’m sure I can substitute!

      • chewoutloud

      I bet if you replace the alcohol with lemon-lime soda, it’d be pretty yummy 🙂
