Sure, a glass of wine or a beer is a nice way to unwind — but every now and then, you deserve a happy hour that's a little more...hmmm. What's the word? Refined! Kelly Sparks of Queen Bee Mixology is graciously sharing a new cocktail with us every week, just in time for Happy Hour.

We don't know about you, but over here at Refined, we love a spicy cocktail every once in a while — and this Pineapple Jalapeno Margarita is destined to be a hit!
