SERVINGS

INGREDIENTS
  • 2 thick slices fresh pineapple
  • 2 cups diced fresh pineapple
  • 6 tablespoons agave nectar
  • 2 cups pineapple juice
  • ½ cup orange liqueur
  • ½ cup mezcal
  • Juice of 4 limes
DIRECTIONS
  1. On a hot grill (we used a grill pan) cook the pineapple slices on each side for 1-2 minutes. You want the slices to be just charred and not burnt. Cut into wedges and reserve for garnish.
  2. In a large cocktail shaker or glass beaker add in pineapple chunks and agave. Muddle together for a minute or until pineapple has been smashed and the juices released.
  3. Add in pineapple juice, orange liqueur, mezcal, and lime juice. Stir or shake well (30-60 seconds). Strain cocktail into a glass filled with crushed ice. For extra pineapple flavor, strain 3⁄4 of the cocktail and leave the rest unstrained.
  4. Garnish with charred pineapple slices.
