Spicy Pineapple Margaritas are a simple 6-ingredient recipe with a smokey sweet and tangy twist! A combination of tequila, orange liquor, freshly squeezed lime juice, sweet pineapple juice, and muddled chilies makes for a tropical refreshment for a hot summer day.
Prep Time: 3 minutes
Yield: 2 (8-ounces) cocktails
Glassware: Collins glass, rocks glass, margarita glass
Add 1 jalapeño pepper slice, ½ of a crushed guajillo and tequila to a cocktail shaker. Muddle with a muddler or wooden spoon and set aside for 5 minutes or so (to allow the pepper flavor to absorb into the liquor).
Fill a cocktail shaker about halfway full with ice. Add the lime juice, orange liquor, and pineapple juice. Shake vigorously for 20 to 30 seconds.
Strain into a margarita glass or serve over ice in a Collins glass. Garnish with a thin slice of pineapple, a guajillo chili, and lime.
Optional garnish: Wet the rim of the glass with lime wedge then rim the glasses with a mix of sugar, coarse salt, and cayenne pepper.
