Pineapple Jalapeno Margaritas

I like to think that Cinco de Mayo (which I recognize is just an American excuse to make margaritas and chow down on tacos) is the start of margarita season. I never think to make a margarita except for in the heat of the Summer, and then the craving is REAL. I want it sweet, salty, spicy, and cold.

As per usual for me, I didn’t want to settle for just any old plain margarita recipe. Why not get a little tropical for the Summer? To keep this margarita season going strong you’re going to need to try these pineapple jalapeno margaritas. The pineapple is the perfect naturally sugary component for the base of this drink, while the jalapeno and lime help to cut through the intense sweetness. Just add in the liquor and go.

I actually had intended to serve this as a pineapple sorbet with the alcohol poured over it, but the liquids melted the sorbet almost immediately. Instead, this drink can be easily self served by your guests by just mixing the ingredients into a cup, no shaker or blender needed. Set out the sorbet with a scoop and have your guests add in the classic lime juice, tequila, and triple sec. Top with jalapenos, and you have the most perfectly balanced and flavorful margarita around.

Try out this recipe for your next Summer gathering, and don’t forget the chips and guac! What is your favorite way to mix up a marg?

Fresh Pineapple Sorbet

  • Servings: 20-24 scoops
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print


1 Pineapple, cut into small pieces
1/4 cup Sugar
2 Tbs. Lime Juice

Take all of your ingredients and mix them together in a blender until smooth.

METHOD WITH ICE CREAM MACHINE: Pour the mixture into the cold bowl of an ice cream machine and churn according to the manufacturer’s recommendation (about 20 minutes for me). Pour into a sealed container and freeze for at least 2 hours.

NO ICE CREAM MACHINE: Alternatively, if you do not have an ice cream machine, you can pour the blended mixture into a sealed container and freeze it for at least 2 hours. This will be fine for margaritas, but will not taste like sorbet if served separately from the drink.

    1. Thank you so much!! I tried a new technique going “messy” with the ingredients around the drinks and I like it a lot more than I expected! The drinks themselves are some of my new faves!
