Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 2 cocktails


Grilled Pineapple

  • 1 pineapple (cut into 1-inch thick slices )

Jalapeno Infused Tequila

  • 1 cup silver tequila
  • 1 jalapeno (sliced into rings)

Cocktail Recipe

  • 3 ounces jalapeno infused tequila
  • 1 ounce cointreau (or triple sec or Gran Marnier)
  • 2 1-inch thick slices of grilled pineapple (chilled)
  • 3 Tablespoons fresh lime juice ((juice of 1 lime))
  • 2 Tablespoons agave syrup (to taste)
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Crushed ice
  • Grilled pineapple and lime wedges for garnish
  • Citrus salt or kosher salt (for rimming your glass)


Jalapeno Infused Tequila

  • Add tequila and jalapeno to a clean, lidded container. Shake to combine and allow the flavors to meld for 12-24 hours, depending on how spicy you’d like it. Once the flavor has developed, strain the jalapenos and discard.
  • The tequila will keep for up to 1 year. I like to store mine in the freezer.

Cocktail (Serves 2)

  • Cut pineapple into 1 inch thick rings, discarding the rind. 
  • Preheat grill to medium-high and oil it lightly. Grill pineapple for 4-5 minutes on each side, until you get nice grill marks and it begins to soften slightly.
  • Place the grilled pieces in a bowl and allow to cool completely in the refrigerator.
  • Add jalapeno infused tequila, cointreau, 2 slices of the grilled and chilled pineapple (and any juices that have accumulated in the bowl), lime juice, agave, vanilla extract and water to a blender. Process until smooth. If desired, strain to remove the pulp from the pineapple.
  • To salt the rim, run a lime slice or pineapple wedge around the lip of your glass and dip into salt to cover.
  • Add crushed ice to your glass, pour in your margarita mixture, and garnish with extra grilled pineapple, jalapeno slices or lime wedges.
