I love a good margarita. I really love a fruity margarita. When you take it up a notch and add heat to a margarita, I about lose my mind. I am obsessed with spicy pineapple margaritas from a local taco place. After finding multiple reasons to go there, I decided it was time for me to recreate this favorite at home. I have mastered the art of a smooth sweet and spicy pineapple margaritas by the pitcher.
Spicy Pineapple Margaritas by the Pitcher combine the sweet nectar of pineapple infused tequila with triple sec, pineapple and lime juices and a kick of jalapeno heat. Line the rim with Tajin seasoning for an extra hint of smoky heat in the salt rim. This will quickly become your coveted margarita.
Spicy Pineapple Margaritas
I frequent Mexican restaurants when I travel. Margaritas are good in every city I visit. My bestie lives outside of Detroit and on a visit, I had a margarita made from pineapple infused tequila. My life was forever changed. Infused tequila is smooth. I now use my trust mason jars to infuse my own tequilas. And vodkas. And rums. You get the point…
People, start infusing your booze. You can all send me love notes after your life is forever altered as mine has been.
Back to the margaritas…
For these pitchers of margaritas, I combine pineapple juice, triple sec, tequila and lime juice. To take the near perfect margarita up a notch, I add sliced jalapenos to the mix. I have a thing for jalapenos and margaritas. My Frozen Peach Margaritas and Champagne Margaritas both have jalapenos in them.
Let’s talk about how I am addicted to salt, shall we? Seriously, I am licking the glasses clean when I have a margarita. When I had the Spicy Pineapple Margarita at Bakersfield, the salt was what was most appealing. Since I had Tajin in the cabinet, I decided to use it in my attempt at the knock-off spicy pineapple margarita.
Nailed it. People, buy Tajin Seasoning right now.
Spicy Pineapple Margaritas by the Pitcher combine the sweet nectar of pineapple infused tequila with triple sec, pineapple and lime juices and a kick of jalapeno heat. Add Tajin seasoning to add a smoky heat to the salted rim.
