Pineapple + Jalapeño
Tis' the season for all creative and infused beverages. I'm doing my best to avoid this heat wave & heating up my glassware instead with this pineapple + jalapeño smash. YWF recipes are all about keeping it simple and practical. Who's got the time?
1 whole pineapple
2 jalapenños de-seeded & minced
1/2 cup amber agave
demerara sugar for rimming
Muddle lime into two glasses and rim with crushed demerara sugar. Chill in freezer. Chop up your pineapple and save a few wedges for garnishing. Place pineapple into blender with ice, simple syrup, and minced jalapeño. Pour in lime-muddled glass. Exhale.
This recipe can be modified if you don't feel like cutting a pineapple or don't wish to have the pulp. You can juice your own pineapple juice and bake the pulp or simply used pre-made pineapple juice. Additionally, if you're not feeling the jalapeño directly in the drink, you can infuse a simple syrup on reserve. Today, I was going for a slush-effect.
