 • 1/2 oz. Triple Sec
 • 2 round slices of Pineapple
 • 1 lime (juiced) + 1 lime (sliced)
 • 2 tbsp Agave
 • 3/4 cup Water
 • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
 • Crushed Ice

Directions: Cut your pineapple into 1 inch thick rings, discarding the rind and removing the core. Add the jalapeno infused tequila, some fresh jalapeno (to taste), and all the other ingredients (except the ice and salt!) to the blender. Blend until smooth, then strain to remove the pulp from the pineapple. To salt the rim, run a lime slice or pineapple wedge around the lip of your glass and dip into salt to cover. Add crushed ice to your glass, pour in your margarita mixture, and garnish with extra pineapple or lime wedge.
