Summer Crush

2 ounces of Jose Cuervo Tradicional Plata


Makes 1 serving. You'll need: Blender or food processor, fine mesh strainer, one 8oz (240mL) sterilized Mason jar, shaker tin, Hawthorne strainer, Sour glass


Sear your jalapeño in your skillet, let cool and de-seed. Cut your ¼ or ½ piece of jalapeño.


In a cocktail shaker, add the jalapeño, pineapple chunks, pineapple juice, mint leaves, tequila, Cointreau, lime juice and honey. Muddle everything together and shake it on ice for 30 seconds. The longer you shake, the spicier it’ll be.


Prepare your serving glass, rim your glass with the tajin and add ice to the top.


Strain the contents of your cocktail shaker into your glass. Top with ginger beer if desired and garnish with mint and pineapple wedges.
