A basic margarita includes tequila, triple sec, and lime juice either blended or on the rocks with a rim of salt. This often goes with your favorite tacos or other Mexican recipes. However, sometimes the margarita is one of the easiest cocktails to mix up with special ingredients and bring exciting flavors to the table.

Here are three extremely tasty and unusual margarita recipes!

Pineapple Mint Margarita

While this is a surprising combination, both canned or frozen fruit work together in this recipe for exciting flavors that truly match.


  • 1 lime wedge
  • ½ cup superfine sugar
  • 2 cups fresh pineapple chunks
  • 2 cups crushed ice
  • Juice of two limes
  • 2 tablespoons chopped, fresh mint
  • 3 ounces tequila
  • 3 ounces triple sec

Orange Cinnamon Margarita

Jose Cuervo has a cinnamon tequila called Cinge. While it is a spicy cinnamon flavor, mixed with orange, it makes a mighty tasty margarita.


  • 1 lime wedge
  • ½ cup superfine sugar
  • Juice of 6 oranges
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 3 ounces cinnamon tequila
  • 2 ounces triple sec

Spicy Mango Margarita

Made with sweet mangos and the bite of spicy Szechuan pepper, this frozen margarita is intriguing and refreshing.


  • 1 lime wedge
  • ½ cup superfine sugar
  • 1 mango, pitted, peeled, and cut into cubes
  • 2 droppers full of Szechuan pepper cocktail spice
  • Juice of 4 limes

If you are familiar with the bartending of margarita recipes, you will be able to put these together easily! Take the sugar or salt and place it on a plate so that it can coat the rims of wet margarita glasses when they are dipped in it. Then, you can use a cocktail shaker for margaritas on the rocks or a blender for smoothly frozen drinks. It’s up to you, but each of these recipes makes three delicious margaritas that you can enjoy with friends or family anytime!
