Grilled Pineapple and Jalapeno Margarita Mocktail

Sharing is caring!

This recipe for Grilled Pineapple and Jalapeno Margarita Mocktail is sponsored in conjunction with #BBQWeek.  The sponsors, Rainier Foods and Intensity Academy generously provided samples to participants to aid in the creation of the #BBQWeek recipes and prize packages to give away to the readers.  However, all opinions are mine alone.

I have had so much fun making non-alcoholic drinks for my readers. My family and I do not drink alcohol but we love fun fruity drinks, so I was excited to create this one for BBQ Week.

This drink features a spicy simple syrup thanks to the jalapenos, and chunks of sweet grilled pineapple in the glass.

How to Make a Grilled Pineapple and Jalapeno Margarita Mocktail

Start by making a simple syrup. Add 1/2 cup of water, 1/2 cup of sugar, and one de-seeded jalapeno to a saucepan.

Heat over medium heat until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from the heat and let the pepper steep in the syrup. Also, squeeze in one whole lime.

While the syrup is steeping, grill the pineapples. Slice a fresh pineapple and grill either on an indoor grill or on an outdoor grill until you get the perfect char marks.

Once they are done, set them aside. Dip the rim of each glass in the simple syrup and then place in the margarita salt.

Now, in each glass, place a few ice cubes. Pour 1/4 cup of simple syrup into each glass. Squeeze one whole lime into each glass.

Top the glass off with lime club soda or Sprite.

Dice up one of the grilled pineapples and place a little in each glass. Add a couple of mint leaves and then garnish each glass with a pineapple wedge, a jalapeno slice, and a lime slice.

The spice from the simple syrup really adds a whole other level to this drink idea. If you want it super spicy, leave the seeds in.
