Pineapple Chilli Margarita

Every year when Cinco de Mayo comes around, I always like to play homage to my Mexican friends with a cheeky Margarita. There is something about that salty, limey, icy kick that can’t be rivalled. It just screams of fun in the sun.

This year, having not been abroad in goodness knows how long, I am craving heat. So, this Pineapple Chilli concoction was born. It’s an absolute stunner.

Make them, get some friends in the garden and let the fun begin…


50ml Tequila

30ml Triple Sec, Cointreau

60ml Pineapple Juice

30ml Lime Juice

4 dashes Tabasco

Coarse Salt / Margarita Seasoning for the rim

Pineapple/ Lime Wedges

Plenty Of Ice


1. Add the Tequila. Triple Sec, Pineapple Juice, Lime and Tabasco to a cocktail shaker and fill with ice.
