The Mint Pineapple Sour Recipe



For a tropical twist on a traditional sour, cocktail connoisseur Natalie Migliarini adds freshly muddled pineapple, citrus, and gin.

The Story Behind The Pineapple Mint Sour

This Pineapple Mint Sour comes together deliciously because of all the wonderful, warm-weather ingredients — starting with freshly muddled pineapple. I’d originally wanted to use pineapple rum in this drink (because I’m a little obsessed!) but worried that would be overkill. Instead, I went with a delicious North Carolina gin I tasted while at Asheville Cocktail Week last week. Its wonderful bouquet and citrus-accented palate are accented here by just a little fresh lemon juice. And then I added some delicious mint simple syrup to balance out the flavors and bring another, tropical-feeling dimension to the cocktail.


Ingredients In The Pineapple Mint Sour:

  • 1 ½ ounces gin
