A frequent flyer at my house!

My drink of choice this year for Cinco de Mayo is a Pineapple Jalapeño Margarita. This is a frequent flyer at my house, since friends often request it. I use pineapple coconut water for a lighter drink rather than using pineapple juice. I like this drink using plain coconut water too, although some may want a sweeter taste.

Pineapple Jalapeño Margarita

  • 2 oz blanco tequila
  • 1 oz fresh lime juice
  • 1-2 oz pineapple coconut water
  • A few sprigs of cilantro
  • A couple a slices of jalapeño

Muddle the jalapeño and cilantro in the bottom of your glass. Now add ice. In a cocktail shaker, mix tequila, lime juice, and pineapple coconut water with ice. Shake thoroughly. Pour into glass with the cilantro and jalapeño, garnish with a lime slice and a sprig of cilantro. Cheers!
