Pineapple Pitcher Margaritas

Make ahead of time & chill. To keep from getting watered down, add the ice to just the glasses when serving or have ice on the side and have everyone ice & pour their own margaritas.
If you can use fresh pineapple juice for this, it will be amazing! For warm summer parties, we suggest to go lighter on the tequila, but feel free to make it as "punchy" as you like. To adjust the sweetness, use more or less of the juices or orange liqueur (different brands will also vary in sweetness).
