Jalapeños might not be the first thing that comes to mind for cocktail-making, but nowadays they seem to be ever-present on cocktail menus. Their spicy bite brings a whole new element to your glass, adding warmth and heat to a sweet drink. Balance the heat with the juicy, tropical flavor of pineapple and you have a vodka-based cocktail that’s sure to be a crowd-pleaser.
