Looking for a drink that is a little out of the ordinary?
These Pineapple Mango Jalapeño Cocktails are smooth and refreshing. Not too sweet and the hint of spice from the chile and salt is surprisingly good.
I doubled the recipe and made one pitcher, rum free, for my kids. They loved the drinks, jalapeño and all.
I added about 3/4 cup rum to the second pitcher to create a very welcome adult beverage. A hint of the tropics to warm up my winter.

I saw this video making its way around Twitter this past weekend. I cannot get the song out of my head. It is absolutely gorgeous.
Here is O Canada sung by Gerry Lyons.
Now that is a song worth raising a glass to.
