When you are ready to prepare your margaritas, pull pineapple cubes from freezer and allow to soften a little.

Squeeze 4 limes and strain juice.

Dissolve 2 tablespoons of sugar in lime juice.

Place the pineapple cubes and mint in a blender in alternating layers. 

Then pour pineapple juice, tequila and cointreau over the layers. If you wish to make this non-alcoholic, replace the liquor with another 6 ounces of pineapple juice. Blend until a ‘creamy’ consistency.

Rub lime wedges over glass rims and dip in salt or sugar. I recommend salt for alcoholic margaritas and sugar for the non-alcoholic option.
