Ingredients

Tajin Salt

Instructions

  • 1. Place the serrano chiles over a gas flame, or in a dry skillet over high heat. Char the chile all over, turning a few times, until blackened. Remove and let cool, then halve the chile and de-seed, if desired.
    2. To make the tajin salt. Combine all 3 ingredients on a shallow plate. Rim your glass.
    3. In a cocktail shaker or glass jar, add the pineapple, mint, tequila, orange liquor, lime juice, and honey (or sugar). Add 1-2 quarters of the chile. Muddle together, squashing everything to release the juices. Fill with ice and shake until combined, about 1 minute, the longer you shake, the spicier it will be.
    4. Strain into your prepared glass. Top with ginger beer, if desired. Garnish with mint and pineapple wedges. Enjoy!

Notes

Orange Liquor: if you don't have orange liquor at home, either omit this (I often do) or use 2 teaspoons orange zest or a splash of orange juice.
