Sweet and Spicy Pineapple and Jalapeño Infused Casamigos Blanco Tequila
Tequila is good. Infused tequila is better. Patience is one of the most important ingredients here, but don’t be afraid to sneak a taste or two mid-infusion. Actually, you’ll be better off if you do—the jalapeños will come out before the pineapple, and you don’t want to make it too hot to drink!
Start with a clean mason jar. You’re only using 12 ounces of tequila, but your jar should hold at least 20 ounces, since the pineapple also takes up space. Next comes juicy pineapple and hot jalapeño.
Look for a pineapple with a firm shell that’s slightly soft when you press on it. Once you have one that meets that criteria, give it a whiff. A perfectly ripe pineapple will have a sweet aroma. And don’t forget the tequila! Use silver on blanco for this pineapple infused tequila recipe.
