A cool and tasty drink.
- step-by-step directions
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup water
- 1 small pineapple (top removed, skin removed, cut into 1-inch pieces)
- 2 large cucumbers (chopped)
- 1/2 teaspoon ginger (peeled, small dice)
- 2 limes (juiced)
- 1 (750ml) bottle blanco tequila
- 8 cups ice
- seltzer (to top)
- cucumber (peeled into ribbons lengthwise, for garnish)
- In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, add sugar and water, and bring to a boil stirring until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
- In a blender of a food processor, add the pineapple, cucumber, and ginger. Puree until smooth, about 1-2 minutes, and strain through a mesh strainer into a pitcher, and discard the scraps. Add simple syrup, lime juice, and tequila mix to combine.
- Fill each glass with 1 cup of ice, and pour pineapple mixture evenly among the glasses, and top with seltzer.
- Take a cucumber and using a peeler, thinly peel the cucumber lengthwise to create ribbons. Take a toothpick and carefully weave the cucumber through the toothpick. Add cucumber garnish to each cocktail and serve.
- Tip: Substitute the tequila for your favorite clear liquor like vodka, gin, or white rum!
