Rest of ingredients for the drink: 4 oz. 100% pineapple juice 1/2 oz. blue agave or agave nectar 1 lime juiced Sparkling water or ginger ale (optional for fizz!) Ice cubes
Wet the rim of your glass with a slice of a juicy lime and gently rotate the rim into the salt to coat the edge of the glass evenly. Fill the glass with ice cubes and set aside. Then, gently muddle the pineapple, limes and jalapeño with ~2 oz. pineapple juice for ~30 seconds – 1 minute to release the juices and oils. Pour these juices (along with some of the jalapeño seeds if you really like it spicy) into your prepared cocktail glass. Add in the remaining pineapple juice, fresh lime juice and agave nectar. Give it a gentle stir. Add a splash of sparkling water (optional) Garnish as desired: lime wedge, pineapple chunk, jalapeño round. *See recipe notes for adding tequila.
For the non-mocktail version: add in 2 oz. of tequila and 3/4 oz. triple sec!
