Pineapple Chili Margarita


A toast to my good health!

Seriously, I'm much better now. Pretty much 100% - which is good, as I'm invited to a really cool breakfast tomorrow that would have sucked if I still felt queasy.

The above drink is a pineapple chili margarita that I made for our 13-course dinner a few weeks ago. It's from Mesa Grill Cookbook by Bobby Flay but I didn't exactly follow the recipe. I improvised - and it went something like this:

-one pineapple, fruit and juice
-one fresh red chili, without seeds

Combine in a blender.

-pineapple juice, as good quality as you can get

Add this to the blender. You need a big blender.

I poured tequila into the individual glasses and then topped up with the mixture. we had one driver and one pregnant guest, so two got the pineapple chili juice as it was.

It turned out to be pretty darn good - everyone liked it. As I'm writing this, I think some lime wouldn't be a bad addition, but it depends on how sweet your pineapple is, probably.

It's a quite odd combination that I wouldn't make up myself but I really liked it and I will surely make it at home. This margarita was perfect before the huge 13-course dinner :-)

Wow! That's not a combination I would naturally have thought of, but it looks gorgeous and I'd love to try one...
