Thirsty Thursday--Pineapple Jalapeño Margaritas

A few weeks ago I  had a jalapeño margarita.
It was so delicious.
I loved the lime and jalapeño, one of my favorite mexican food combinations.

I thought that it would really be delicious to combine the flavor with the sweetness of pineapple.

It was a great choice and had the right amount of sweet with just a touch of heat.

Pineapple Jalapeño Margaritas

To make the pineapple jalapeño puree:

3 cups chopped fresh pineapple (about 1 whole)
1 fresh jalapeño, seeds and veins removed and coarsely chopped
2 cups simple syrup

In a blender, combine the pineapple with the jalapeño and puree.  Add the simple syrup and blend.

To Make the Drink:

3 ounces pineapple jalapeño puree
2 ounces tequila
1 ounce lime juice
1 ounce orange liqueur

Combine all of the ingredients in a shaker with ice and shake vigorously.  Strain ingredients into a glass with ice, rimmed with salt.  Garnish with a slice of lime and jalapeño.



  1. You're killin' me with the tequila again, but I'm thinkin' it would be just as fantastic with another liquor. I LOVE pineapple cocktails!!!!
