Thrillist's Best (and the Rest): The Truth Behind the Saddest Cookbook Ever
Yellow Light Cocktail (Spicy Tequila Cocktail)
Total Time: 20 minutes; Active time: 15 minutes
- 1 jalapeño pepper
- 4 ounces blanco tequila
- 1 pineapple
- 2 yellow peppers
- ¼ cup of water
- 1.5 ounces lime juice
- First, you're going to make your own jalapeño-infused tequila. Which is a fancy way of saying you're going to cut a jalapeño in half, scoop out the seed and the white stuff, then put them in a mixing bowl (reserve the actual pepper for future pizza needs). After that, pour in the tequila and wait 10 minutes.
- While your tequila infuses, make some pineapple pepper juice. Cut the two peppers into thin strips and toss them into a blender. Next, core, peel, and cut a whole pineapple into chunks (or buy pre-cut pineapple) and add it to the blender with ¼ cup of water. After that, strain out the pulp. You can also use a juicer.
- Strain your tequila (unless you want to drink seeds), then pour it into an ice-filled shaker with the lime juice and 3 ounces of pineapple-pepper juice. Shake, strain, and enjoy over ice.
