    To Make Jalapeño Infused Tequila

    Take half a bottle of blanco (white) or planta (silver) tequila and decant into a jar or glass container with a tight seal. Add 1 sliced jalapeño, seal tightly, and do a little dance with you shake up the container. Now, leave at least overnight for the flavours to develop. We know some of you are spice fiends, so give your tequila a little taste after 12 hours, and leave for up to 24 hours if you think you can handle the heat.

    To make Pineapple Jalapeño Margaritas

    You’ll need a blender for this recipe, but if you don’t have one, why not borrow your neighbour’s and invite them round for a drink? Now that’s community spirit.

    • 1/2 oz. triple sec
    • 2 round slices pineapple (find one as ripe and sweet as you can)
    • 2 limes, one juiced and one sliced into rounds
    • 2 tbsp honey (or agave)
    • 3/4 cup water
    • crushed ice
    • kosher or maldon salt (anything larger than table salt, to rim the glasses)
