Celebrate National Tequila Day With This Pineapple Jalapeño Margarita!

It’s National Tequila Day, ya’ll! We decided to toast this fabulous occasion by whipping up a sweet and spicy cocktail that’s as festive as it is delicious. (I mean come on, it IS served in a pineapple after all. How could that possibly be a bad thing?) 

If you don’t have a pineapple, there’s no need to fret. This margarita is just as tasty and refreshing in a rocks glass. Same goes for the jalapeño simple syrup; if you’re not into the heat, you can use plain simple syrup if you like, or substitute agave or maple syrup.

Point is, it’s time for a cocktail. Here’s how it’s done:

Ingredients:

2 oz tequila blanco

1 oz POM Hula

1 oz POM Coco

1 oz fresh lime juice 

1/2 oz jalapeño simple syrup (see below)

1/2 oz Cointreau 

Ingredients for Jalapeño Simple Syrup:

1 cup sugar

1 cup water 

2 jalapeños, halved and sliced into 1/4 inch rounds 

Method:

Place simple syrup ingredients into a small sauce pan and bring to a boil, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Once sugar is dissolved, bring to a simmer for 2 minutes, then turn off the heat. Cool for one hour, strain, and put into a squeeze bottle or mason jar. 

To make the cocktail, fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake, then serve on the rocks, ideally in a fun tropical vessel like a coconut or pineapple. 

Cheers!
