Yellow Light Cocktail (Spicy Tequila Cocktail)

Total Time: 20 minutes; Active time: 15 minutes
Yield: 2

Ingredients:

  • 1 jalape├▒o pepper
  • 4 ounces blanco tequila
  • 1 pineapple
  • 2 yellow peppers
  • ┬╝ cup of water
  • 1.5 ounces lime juice

Directions:

  • First, you're going to make your own jalape├▒o-infused tequila. Which is a fancy way of saying you're going to cut a jalape├▒o 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 ┬╝ 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.
