Hello, friends! Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner which means one thing, I have tequila on the brain! Actually.... I have tequila on my brain every Wednesday. You see, my family and friends all meet up at a local Mexican restaurant each Wednesday for a friendly game of trivia. It's a great way to decompress mid-week and mentally prepare ourselves for the rest of the work week.
When I'm at home, one of my favorite margaritas to make is a Pineapple Jalapeno Margarita. The spiciness of a muddled jalapeno, the sweetness of pineapple and the tartness of a lime come together with triple sec and Patron to make a drink that is out of this world!
Ingredients (per serving):
1 tbsp lime juice
1 jalapeno slice
1/4 cup Patron Silver Tequila
3/4 cup pineapple juice
1/8 cup triple sec
pineapple wedges for garnishing
chili salt for the rim- (2 tbsp kosher salt, 1 tsp chili powder)
1. Muddle the jalapeno slice with lime juice in a shaker.
2. Add tequila, pineapple juice and triple sec to the shaker.
3. Place 1 1/2 cups of ice in the shaker. Shake vigorously.
4. Garnish with chili salt, pineapple or jalapeno, if desired.
