While regular tequila is fun, we like to spice things up on occasion and create infusions to add another layer of flavor to our cocktails. Like this pineapple habanero infused tequila. It’s a mix of sweet and heat that will bump up any margarita recipe.
This time though, we have really kicked it up a notch with this pineapple habanero infused tequila. That’s right… we said habanero. This is one blend that is not for the weak. So, put on your big kid panties and bust out those spicy peppers.
And if you want something that’s all heat, check out the Thai chili infused tequila. There’s no sweet in that one to cool down the spice. Just hot, hot peppers. And it’s excellent in the Spicy Blood Orange Margaritas.
But back to this pineapple habanero infused tequila….
Pineapple Habanero Infused Tequila
- Silver tequila
- Mason jar or some other glass container with a lid
Cut up 2-3 Habanero peppers and a handful of pineapple. For less spice, remove seeds from habaneros. Also, be careful handling the peppers and don’t touch your face or your eyes while doing so.
Place the habaneros and pineapple in a mason jar.
Fill mason jar with tequila.
Put a lid on the jar, label it with name and date and place in fridge. The habaneros should infuse rather quickly but you’ll want to make sure the pineapple also comes through. Check it after a few hours to see how it’s doing. If the spice is good, remove the habaneros and keep the pineapple infusing. Check it again in a day or so. Once the taste is where you want it, strain out the fruit and peppers and store in a clean mason jar.
