We once again find ourselves in the awkward limbo between Summer and Fall. I crave the fall flavors of pumpkin, apple, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves. But, the reality is it is still 90 degrees outside.

Why We Love the Pineapple Ginger Margarita

How do I get my seasonal fix with the heat?

Well, margaritas are also a terrific choice regardless of the time of year. To make this timeless classic a bit more seasonally appropriate, I added the spiciness of ginger to the mix.

A simple ginger syrup is all you need to elevate the cocktail to a superb Fall cocktail. TO balance the spicy flavor of the ginger I add a bit of pineapple juice for sweetness. Margaritas are already sour, so without something sweet sour and spicy are not the best pairing.

You can use a standard margarita mix and pineapple juice if you prefer. However, I find fresh juices really elevate a cocktail. Especially for a cookout or any get together where this is your signature cocktail.
