Grilled Pineapple Jalapeño Margaritas

4.5 from 2 reviews



For the rim

  • lime wedge
  • salt or sugar

For the jalapeño simple syrup

  • 1 cup water
  • ⅓ cup honey (or agave if you are ok with that)
  • 2 jalapeños, sliced
  • juice of ½ lime
  • zest of 1/2 lime

For the margaritas

  • 2 cups diced pineapple, grilled on grill pan or grill
  • 1/2 cup lime juice
  • 3/41 cup silver agave tequila
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. To make your life easier, get the glasses ready first then set in the freezer until you are ready with your drink. Use a lime wedge to wet the rim of a glass then place sugar or salt on a plate and dip the rim of the glass in it and all the way around. Then add crushed ice to the glass. Repeat with 4 glasses. Place in freezer.
  2. Place all the ingredients for the simple syrup in a small saucepan over medium heat, whisk and let simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from heat to let cool completely.
  3. Place pineapple on a grill pan or grill and grill for about 4-5 minutes per side, until grill marks appear. Place in fridge to cool for about 10 minutes.
  4. Once pineapple and simple syrup have cooled, place in the both in the blender (for less spice, remove jalapeño peppers from simple syrup – I removed just a few for garnish) along with lime juice, tequila and vanilla extract. Blend until completely smooth and combine.
  5. Pour margarita mixture into glasses filled with crushed ice and garnish with extra grilled pineapple and jalapeños.
