Candied Jalapeno & Pineapple Margarita

Jalapeno Pineapple Margarita | In Jennie's Kitchen

I created this recipe recently for The Spruce, and wanted to pop in to share it with you since quite a few people seemed excited when I shared a sneak peek on Instagram. Michael and I used to be huge fans of margaritas, and admittedly, I don’t drink them very often anymore (bourbon is usually my first choice). Well, except for this Italian Cadillac, which might actually be my all-time favorite spin on a classic margarita.

The candied jalapeno part of this recipe is addictive, and would also make a wonderful garnish for non-alcoholic drinks where you want to add a zing. I might even try adding some to my next salad for a sweet & spicy surprise. If you pop on over to get the recipe (link is below), please think about rating it, too (thanks!).

    oh my gosh these were amazing! i was admittedly intrigued to see if any hint of the jalapeño would survive in making the simple syrup and am happy to report hints of the pepper, not the heat, provide an interesting component to the lime and pinneapple. while i unfortunately could not make the candied jalapeños, i am excited to know i can prepare this again when i do!
