Spicy Pineapple Margarita

With Cinco de Mayo fast approaching, I am on the lookout for some cocktail recipes to fully celebrate.  I am always open to variations of the classic margarita, and this spicy pineapple version sounds interesting.

The recipe below is shared from Hot Sauce! by Jennifer Trainer Thompson.


Spicy Pineapple Margarita

1 tablespoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ground chile powder

1 lime wedge

8 ounces tequila blanco

1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice

1/2 cup pineapple juice

2 ounces Cointreau

1 teaspoon hot sauce

* Mix the salt and chile powder on a small plate.  Rub the rims of 4 glasses with the lime wedge, then dip the rims in the salt mixture to coat.

* Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add all of the remaining ingredients.

* Shake vigorously, then strain into glasses.

* Serve immediately.
