Weekend Cooking: Pineapple Jalapeño Margaritas
Tonight is our annual Cinco de Mayo bash. I sure wish I could have you all over, but I thought I'd do the next best thing and share the recipe for our signature drink. We mix this up in a sports jug (it's a big group) and then the bartender just has to put them over ice!
Col's Pineapple Jalapeño Margaritas
2-3 jalapenos, seeded and chopped
64 oz pineapple juice
1 1/2 cups lime juice
1 1/2 cups simple syrup
2 cups tequila
1 cup triple sec (or another orange liqueur)
8 cups ice cubes
Additional ice for serving
Lime or orange triangles for garnish
1. In a blender, mix 1 cup pineapple juice with the jalapenos. Puree completely.
2. Pour the puree along with all remaining ingredients, including the 8 cups of ice, into a large jug with a dispenser at the bottom.
3. Serve over ice in a rocks glass and garnish with lime or orange slices, if desired.
Weekend Cooking is open to anyone who has any kind of food-related post to share: Book (novel, nonfiction) reviews, cookbook reviews, movie reviews, recipes, random thoughts, gadgets, fabulous quotations, photographs. If your post is even vaguely foodie, feel free to grab the button and link up anytime over the weekend. Please link to your specific post, not your blog's home page.
