Chili-Pineapple Margarita

The inspiration for this spicy margarita came from a cocktail we had at Hartwood, a restaurant in Tulum, Mexico. Chef Eric Werner steeped habanero chilies in tequila for over 36 hours to add kick. We simplified, infusing simple syrup with the same flavors in under 20 minutes. You’ll have enough syrup for several batches of margaritas. The smooth, round flavor of reposado tequila works best with the chilies.

Tip

The smooth, round flavor of reposado tequila worked best with the chilies. Steep the peppers no longer than 15 minutes or the syrup will be too spicy.

Excellent margarita! I have made it infusing the simple syrup with jalapeno and habanero chili and without using the chili's in the simple syrup and both versions of the margarita tasted great. Everyone who tried it loves it!
