A pineapple jalapeno margarita made with pineapple juice, lime juice, grapefruit juice, elderflower liqueur, and fresh jalapeno for a spicy balanced kick.


  • 2 ounces reposado or anejo tequila
  • 1/2 ounce fresh grapefruit juice
  • 1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 ounce pineapple juice (I liked canned)
  • 1/2 ounce elderflower liqueur
  • 1/41/2 ounces simple syrup
  • 12 slices jalapeno
  • Optional pineapple wedge garnish


  1. For the salted rim, take a lime wedge and coat the rim of a double old fashioned glass. Dip in margarita salt, rotating until coated.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker. Add a cup of ice and shake vigorously for 10 seconds. Pour straight into the old fashioned glass with the (now crushed) ice from the shaker.
  3. Garnish with a pineapple wedge or jalapeno slice.


For less heat, don’t shake the jalapeno into the cocktail, only add as garnish and stir.
