Jalapeño Pineapple Margarita Recipe

Happy National Margarita Day!!  In celebration of this fun-filled holiday, I wanted to share my jalapeño pineapple margarita recipe with you.  (Last year I shared my Lemon Drop Margarita)  What I love most about this margarita recipe is that it’s a little spicy and a little sweet.  So you get the best of both worlds, all in one glass.  I discovered how well jalapeños and pineapple go together when one of my friends introduced me to jalapeño and pineapple hummus.  From that day forward I was hooked on the combination and have been keeping my eye open for other recipes that I could use these two ingredients in.  I hope you love this jalapeño pineapple margarita recipe as much as I do!

The pineapple gives this cocktail a natural frothiness that makes it extra delicious!

Recipe:

  1. In a food processor, blend your fresh pineapple and jalapeños together.  I stopped when the pineapple got frothy but could still see bits of the jalapeño.
  2. Optional: I grilled pineapple chunks by placing a thin coating of coconut oil on each side and searing them quickly on the grill.  I used these grilled pineapple pieces as garnish.
  3. Mix all the other ingredients in with the pineapple and jalapeños.
  4. Serve over ice and garnish with grilled pineapple chunks and jalapeño slices.
