Here is exactly the drink you need to stir up for your next Taco Tuesday. It's got a spicy kick from muddled jalapeños to keep things interesting, but just enough sweet tang from the pineapple juice to prevent the heat from overwhelming your taste buds. The colorful punch is sure to be a hit at any and all parties you serve it at, whether there are tacos involved or not.

A Sweet and Spicy Punch That Delivers a Party

Just about any drink that is called a "punch" is guaranteed to be the center of a party, and this one is no different. What makes this one stand out among the rest are its layers of sweet and spicy flavor, which keep each sip interesting and ensure that it may well be a little bit too easy to finish off the pitcher. For that reason, I suggest you have extra ingredients on hand in case you need to stir up another pitcher to please your crowd.
