Oh, Hawaii…I miss you dearly. I miss the weather. I miss the ocean. And I especially miss getting a fresh piece of pineapple in every single Mai Tai. My favorite thing to do is soak the pineapple in the Mai Tai, let it soak up the goodness, and then take a bite out of it at the very end.

Perfection. Every. Single. Time.

I was dreaming of Hawaii while in the grocery store and I decided to grab a few mini pineapples while I was there. The problem, though, is that I only crave Mai Tai´s while I´m in Hawaii. Never fear, I had the perfect solution – to combine the pineapple aspect of Mai Tai´s with my love of margaritas! The combination sounded like just what I needed on this unbearably hot summer day in southern California. Sidenote: it´s been ridiculously steamy in Long Beach. My dogs, who normally sleep in the bed with us, have traded our cuddles for the cold tile floor.

I hope this frosty and refreshing margarita brings a smile to your face!
