Cuisine Mexican
Servings 2 people


  • 5 Jalapeño pepper slices*
  • 5 tbsp Tequila blanco or reposado or leave out if making a virgin margarita
  • 1/2 cup Pineapple juice
  • 3 tbsp Cointreau or leave out if making a virgin margarita
  • 3 tbsp Fresh lime juice
  • Kosher salt or flaky sea salt for the rim
  • Ice for serving (try clear ice)
  • Pineapple wedge/jalapeño slice for the garnish


  • Using a lime wedge, cut a small notch in it and run it around the edge of a glass to garnish. Salt the rim's outer edge before serving (or for a festive look, use Margarita Salt).
  • For a medium-spicy drink, use 3 to 4 thin slices of jalapeño pepper; add more or less to taste. Remove the seeds if you prefer a more subdued heat.* Make sure to clean up after yourself with soap and water.
  • Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice and add the jalapeño slices, tequila, pineapple juice, Cointreau, and lime juice. Leave out tequila and Cointreau if you are making a virgin. Shake well. Shake until it's icy cold. Pour the margarita into a glass with a salted rim. Stir well and serve immediately. Serve the drink with ice cubes in it.
