Pineapple Margaritas

One of my sweet co-workers pointed out the other day that whenever she is on pinterest that she always notices that all of the cocktail recipes that she see are my pins. I told her that I can't help it if I enjoy a nice cocktail and bottle of wine  every once in a while.  

So one of my cocktail pins that I recently found was for a 

Pineapple Margarita

I liked everything about this one.  
Pineapple + Grand Marnier+ tequilla= winner

Pineapple Margarita
(slightly adapted from Confessions of a Foodie Bride)

1 1/2 cup sugar
3 cups water
1 cup fresh squeezed lime juice (~8-12 limes)
9 oz tequila
8 oz orange liqueur (I used Grand Marnier)
12 oz pineapple juice
Salt or sugar, for rim (optional)
Lime wedges, for serving (optional)

Heat water and sugar in a small sauce pan until completely dissolved and the water is clear. Let cool.   You can keep the additional syrup in the refrigerator for a few weeks.

Add the tequila, orange liqueur,  pineapple juice, lime juice, and 8 ounces of the syrup to the pitcher.

To serve-- add 6 ounces to a cocktail shaker loaded with ice.  Shake until chilled. Serve in salt- or sugar-rimmed glasses.
