What You'll Need for this Recipe
You only need three simple ingredients to make this sweet spicy brunch drink at home. Here's what to add to the grocery list.
Pineapple Juice adds the sweet and juicy factor. You can use fresh pineapple juice or from concentrate. Pineapple nectar also works fabulously here.
Jalapeño slices bring the heat. Be sure to use fresh jalapeño. Pickled or otherwise preserved jalapeños won't work.
Champagne for the bubbles as with any good mimosa recipe. Prosseco or Cava are great substitutes.

Tips & Tools
Grab a sharp knife and cutting board. You'll also need a jigger to measure the pineapple juice and a bar spoon to stir everything up. If you don't have a jigger, a shot glass will do. And a butter knife can work in place of a bar spoon!
How to serve? I recommend serving this spicy sweet drink in stemless champagne flutes. They just add a nice twist to the look that goes along with the twist of flavor.

How to Customize this Recipe
Did I mention that the spice level in this easy tropical mimosa recipe is adjustable? Make it your own by playing with the pepper. Want jalapeño flavor with less heat? Remove the seeds from the jalapeño slices.
For a spicier pineapple mimosa, muddle the jalapeño slices to release more of the oils, juices, and heat. You can also up the spice level by letting the jalapeño "steep" in pineapple juice for a while (about an hour or so) before adding champagne and serving.
How to Batch this Drink for a Crowd
The recipe as written makes spicy pineapple mimosas for two. And you can expand it for a whole function easily! Make up to 10 servings by slicing an entire jalapeño and adding to a pitcher. Pour in 3 ¾ cups pineapple juice and two bottles of champagne and stir. Boom. Easy tropical mimosas for a brunch party.
This is one of my favorite cocktails with jalapeño and I hope you'll enjoy it soon and very soon. And sharing is caring so be sure to pin this recipe for later and follow me over on Pinterest. Thanks for reading!
