Pineapple Jalapeño Paloma
Mexico's national tequila drink of choice is traditionally made with grapefruit juice, but one sip of this jalapeño infused pineapple cocktail may convert more than a few from a pink paloma to this sunshine yellow one. The key to an extraordinary pineapple paloma is freshly made pineapple juice and at least a bit of planning. The jalapeño infused tequila is as simple as cutting a jalapeño straight through end to end, removing the tiny seeds, popping the pepper into two cups of tequila and waiting for the agave to become friends with its new spicy pal. Any clear, bright and smooth tequila such as Pueblo Viejo Blanco or Casamigos Blanco is worthy of this sweet, sour, salty, slightly bitter, spicy mouth tantalizing drink.
