Pineapple Habanero Margarita

When Andrea Duran, wizard of mixology at the lively and delicious La Paloma restaurant, offered us this Pineapple Habanero Margarita, we just had to share it. Our plan is to pick a shady spot some overheated afternoon, make a batch of this drink, and put our feet up for a minute. Enjoy!

Pineapple Habanero Margarita Recipe


2oz Cimarron Reposado
1oz pineapple juice
.5oz lime juice
.5oz habanero simple syrup*


  1. Combine all ingredients in a shaker filled with ice, shake, pour into glass edged with Hawaiian black salt.
  2. Garnish Pineapple Habanero Margarita with a lime wheel and a bit of candied Habanero.

*Coarsely chop 4 Habanero peppers. Combine in a saucepan with 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar. Stir until sugar is dissolved. When the mixture starts to bubble, turn the heat off and let sit to return to room temperature. Strain the liquid into a jar with a lid. Store in refrigerator for up to a month.
