heat wave

1.5 oz white tequila

1 oz pineapple juice

.5 oz lime juice

.5 oz simple syrup

habañero hot sauce to taste (my baseline is probably around .5 tsp)

combine ingredients over ice and shake.  strain over ice into a goblet or collins glass. lime garnish. optional salt rim.

you’re right.  it’s a pineapple-habañero margarita, and it’s delicious.  i expect i’ll be making these by the dozen come spring and summer.  the trick, for me, is to make it spicy enough to warm the belly but not so spicy as to burn out the palate.
