Citrus-tequila cocktail: Mexicana
Refreshing as a dip in the Carribbean, this is a nice change from the popular spring and summer tequila-orange juice combination. Serve it in a tall, frosted glass, with your choice of garnish- a lime wedge, a cocktail cherry, or a sprig of mint. Each gives the drink a slightly different character.
- 2 oz. tequila
- 1 oz. freshly-squeezed lime juice
- 4 oz. pineapple juice
- 1 teaspoon grenadine.
Pour the tequila into a tall glass with ice, followed by the lime juice and pineapple juice. Stir and add the grenadine, letting it seep down for a "tequila sunrise" effect. Garnish as desired. Makes 1 cocktail.
