The Story Behind The Tequila Sundial
With its bright color and candied tang, pineapple juice is an excellent cocktail ingredient. As with all things sweet and canned, however, it’s best to use a lighter touch.
This summery tequila drink comes to us from Natalie Migliarini, cocktail guru @BeautifulBooze and no stranger to pineapple's potential. She balances a relatively small pour of juice with tart lime, a generous splash of bitters, and Añejo tequila. The result is bright and fun, with just enough tropical sweetness to remind you it’s always summer somewhere. A lot like pineapples, actually.
