A few weeks ago I had a jalapeño margarita.
It was so delicious.
I loved the lime and jalapeño, one of my favorite mexican food combinations.
I thought that it would really be delicious to combine the flavor with the sweetness of pineapple.
It was a great choice and had the right amount of sweet with just a touch of heat.
