Skinny Pineapple Jalapeno Cilantro Margarita

Clearly you see I like margaritas right? I usually stick to craft cocktails and wine (mostly wine but I do love a good unique drink when I’m out on the town). A couple of weeks ago I decided that I really wanted a spicy drink and I said, “hey, jalapenos at the farmer’s market are only $1 for a bag and I have some tequila….”

Sooooo….it happened! The biggest part of this is not skimping on infusing the tequila. I had two experiments 1) where I infused the tequila for just about a day or so and 2) where I infused it for a week and used the same ingredients. Both yielded fabulous results but holy %^&$ I loved the one that was infused for a week! It was just the right amount of bite and I also set aside the remaining amount of juiced pineapple juice and froze it so I could use it this week. It gets to be skinny because I use my simple syrup recipe I mentioned before in my skinny mango margarita recipe.

So here it goes! Remember to try to do this a day in advance so you get the best bite for your buck!

Skinny Pineapple Jalapeno Cilantro Margarita

Serves 2

3 shots of jalepeno infused tequila

1 tbsp cilantro

1 fresh pineapple, juiced (if you can’t get this, just get as fresh of pineapple juice as you can, you’ll need about 4 shots of it; 2 per drink)

2 shots of skinny simple syrup

2 limes

  • Juice two limes, skinny simple syrup and add cilantro to the bottom of a shaker. Muddle together to release cilantro flavor
  • Pour pineapple juice, and tequila into shaker. Add ice and shake. Pour over ice or alone (blend if desired).
  • Serve immediately

So simple it should be a crime right? Even if you have to make the simple syrup it’s such a breeze! Such a refreshing summertime drink and I can’t wait to make more!

What fruit should be next??? Should I infuse it or come up with something brand new? Suggestions welcomed!
