I used Key limes for the fresh lime juice. They are my lime of choice because I have a tree in my yard.

No Key limes? No problem, you can use fresh Persian lime juice. Just don’t use the pre-squeezed stuff in the green plastic. Why? Because you can’t see the juice. If you purchase bottled lime juice, and it’s OK if you do, make sure it’s not discolored. If it is, it’s spoiled. 

What can I serve with pineapple margaritas?

Many delicious recipes go with pineapple margaritas. Try steak fajitas, street corn nachos, or spicy chicken tacos.
