Step 1: Assemble You Your Ingredients

You will need-
1 part tequila
1/2 part triple sec or Grand Marnier
2 part pineapple
3-5 slices of jalapeño
kosher salt (optional)
Also-
A cocktail shaker ( mine is made from a Masson jar and the top of a grated Parmesan container)
Knife
A muddler ( you can use the handle end of a kitchen knife sharpener)

Step 2: Muddle the Spice

Firmly muddle (crush) your 3-5 slices of jalapeño inside your cocktail shaker. This releases the oils inside the pepper into the drink when shaken. If you like a 5 alarm cocktail you can substitute the jalapeño for a habanero, and inversely for a mild cocktail you can substitute for a poblano pepper.

Step 3: Combine You Ingredients

Pour your 1 part tequila (1.5oz), 1/2 part triplesec or Grand Mariner (.75oz), 2 parts pineapple juice into your shaker and set aside.

Step 4: Salt (optional)

Salt your glass by pouring kosher salt onto a plate and gently press you glass with a wet rim onto the salt. I wet the glass by rubbing a lime wedge around the rim or with juice using the same technique as with the salt.

Step 5: Ice and Shake

You can now ice your glass and ice your shaker. A longer shake, about 10 sec, will aerate your drink and add a frothy texture.

Step 6: Pour and Enjoy!
