Yum Alert: Bacon Pineapple Jalapeno Margarita

Written by Ashley

Say whaaaat?

I’ll admit… this didn’t sound half as tasty as it actually is, at first. The thought of jalapenos & bacon anywhere near a margarita, in fact, made me want to vom at the thought. But the recipe is quick, easy & tasty. Completely reasonable for accompanying a burger at your next BBQ.

Bacon Pineapple Jalapeno Margarita

Recipe adapted from


  • Crispy cooked bacon (4-5 slices)
  • 3 tablespoons of table salt
  • 1 whole, ripe, pineapple, peeled & cored
  • 2 jalapenos, with NO seeds (very important. those seeds will ruin everything.)
  • Tequila (Jose Cuervo worked really well for me!)
  • Cocktail shaker with strainer
  • Cheese cloth
  • Food processor


  1. Mix the bacon & table salt in to the food processor & pulse a couple of time, until the bacon is about ALMOST at the consistency of the table salt.
  2. Juice the peeled pineapple & 2 seeded jalapenos in the food processor.
  3. Strain through cheese cloth (for the most juice)
  4. Add, to a shaker, the juice of 1 lime (roll the lime on the counter to get the juices flowin’), 1 shot of tequila and 3/4 cup of the pineapple/jalapeno juice and ice
  5. Shake forever and ever
  6. Rim the margarita glass with the juiced lime, and then bacon salt.
  7. Pour
  8. Sip
