Pineapple Margarita Recipe

Happy Hour: Pineapple Margarita


I've always been a fan of flames, so the number one reason I love Cinco de Mayo is the fact that it's one heck of a great excuse to light my mouth on fire. Each year, I make something deliciously spicy and this year, I'm not positive, but I'm thinking I'll serve chiles rellenos.

One thing I'm sure of: there will be pineapple margaritas with a chili-salt rim. The spice is no joke; it hits you up front, but is tempered by a gentle fruitiness that's not too sweet. I love the sweet-salty-fiery complexity so much that I had multiples in one sitting. Want to do the same this May 5? Then read more.
