Servings 8 servings


  • 1 cup water
  • ¼ cup (50g) granulated sugar
  • 1 small jalepeno, or ½ of a large jalepeno, cut into pieces
  • 1 lb (2 cups) fresh, ripe pineapple, peeled and cored
  • ⅓-1/2 cup tequila, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons orange liquor - I used Grand Marnier
  • Juice of 1 lime


  • In a small saucepan, combine the water, sugar and jalapeño over medium-low heat. Bring to a simmer, until the sugar is fully dissolved. Cool until just warm.
  • Place the pineapple, lime juice, orange liquor, and tequila in a blender. Blend to combine
  • Add the simple syrup a few tablespoons at a time, stopping to taste the mixture to determine if you want more heat. It's possible you will not use all of the syrup.
  • Pour the pineapple mixture out into a shallow dish. I use a 13x9. Place the dish in the freezer.
  • Stir and scrape the mixture every 30 minutes for 3-4 hours or until chilled through. Serve immediately or store for up to one week in the freezer.
