Spicy Pineapple Martini

If you are craving a cocktail that is the perfect combination of sweet and spicy, then this one’s for you. This pineapple martini is simple to make, fresh, delicious and the perfect summer drink! I love the flavor of jalapenos but don’t want too much heat, so I remove the seeds. If you prefer more of a kick then add the seeds. The longer you let it sit, the stronger the taste. This is a party hit and will keep your guests asking for more until the last slurp. This recipe makes 2 cocktails. Enjoy!


  • 6 ounces vodka
  • 1/2 jalapeño, sliced, seeds removed
  • 1 1/2 ounces simple syrup
  • 4 ounces pineapple juice
  • 8-10 mint leaves

Simple Syrup:

  • 1 cup sugar

  • The first step is to make the jalapeno infused vodka. Pour 6oz of vodka into a tall container and add sliced jalapeno (with or without seeds)
  • Let sit for a minimum of 45 minutes and up to 6 hours
  • Once you have reached your desired heat and flavor, strain the vodka and remove jalapenos
  • If making your own simple syrup:
  • Combine the water and sugar in a small saucepan over medium-high heat and bring to a boil Stir until the sugar has dissolved, then remove from heat
