Oh my darlings, if you know me, then you know I love a good cocktail. The moment I first came across this particular drink, the mucho gusto, it was love at first sight. For starters, it involves pineapple-infused tequila AND toasted coconut salt, both of which are homemade and both of which take just minutes to make. For the life of me, I don’t know why it took me months to actually try the thing but regardless, I tried it, I loved it, and now I’m here to share it with you.
There is just SO MUCH to love about this drink! Its flavor profile is similar to a piña colada but unlike its frozen blended counterpart, this is light and oh so simple. Not only is it light in calories, it’s also a fairly low alcohol drink making it a perfect option for day drinking and slow sipping. I think it would be smashing prepared as a pitcher drink in large batches for entertaining and so, I have provided a pitcher version below as well. You’re welcome!
Do not let yourself be intimidated by making the pineapple-infused tequila. I made mine in about five minutes when I was running out the door to teach my barre class! It couldn’t be easier. However, take note – it does require four days to infuse so if you are thinking of including these in your Cinco de Mayo celebration, be sure to get that tequila started no later than Monday. And if you are late, hey, just enjoy these on a different day de Mayo. I promise, they will still be amazing.
