Sweet pineapple and sunny orange juice take this cocktail in a tropical direction, while jalapeño pepper adds alluring heat and “green” flavour notes. For more heat, use all of the pepper; for a mild flavour, use just 1 or 2 slices. Be sure to take your time when muddling the pineapple in step 1 so that you release as much juice and sweetness as possible.

Ingredients

Orange(s)

1 medium, cut into 4 wedges

Pineapple

cup(s), (2 chunks)

Jalapeño pepper(s)

1 medium, sliced and divided

Pineapple

  1. Thread 2 orange slices, 1 pineapple chunk, and 1 pepper slice onto each of 2 (4- to 8-inch skewers). Place the diced pineapple and remaining pepper slices (or fewer, if desired) in a 2-cup glass measuring cup. Using a muddler or wooden spoon, smash the fruit into a thick paste; discard the pepper slices.
  2. Stir the orange juice and seltzer into the measuring cup. Divide the mixture evenly between 2 ice-filled glasses. Garnish with the fruit skewers.
  3. Serving size: 1 cup juice mixture and 1 fruit skewer
