Pineapple-Jalapeno-Cilantro Margarita: Droolsome Summer Delight! | Virgin Pineapple Margarita

Pineapple-Jalapeno-Cilantro Margarita(Non-Alcoholic)
How to Make Virgin Pineapple-Jalapeno-Margarita
Hello Foodies,
       A sweet, tangy, spicy, and delicious margarita that is incredibly simple and easy to make is our new favorite! Have you ever tried a spicy Margarita? If not, then you need to try this delicious treat! This Margarita isn’t too sugary/sweet or not too spicy or tangy like other drinks. It just YUM!


I tried it last summer when we(my friends & me) went to a restaurant, and my friend had ordered it. I just had one sip, and it was damn good, since then I wanted to recreate it, and here you go, I made it. 


That one sip of Pineapple-Jalapeno Margarita has changed my mind. And shocker, it worked! The rim of glass-lined with salt and Tajín(a Mexican seasoning made of salt, chili, and dehydrated lime) is perfect. I highly recommend giving it a try for your next party.

Instructions:
To Muddle the Mixture:
  • Add Jalapeno slices, chopped pineapple, cilantro(fresh cilantro adds a lovely herbal flavor to the drink), sugar, and a pinch of salt in a big glass.

  • Now, take a glass (a cocktail or coupe glass will do) and rub the rim with a wedge of lime/lemon.

  • Add jalapeno slices, pineapple chunks, cilantro leaves, and garnish with pineapple and jalapeno.

Notes:
  • It can be made a few hours before, but not too much longer as citrus juice has a tendency to become bitter after extended contact with air.
  • I didn’t use sparkling water, but if you want to add it just before serving.
