Jala-Piña Margarita Cocktail

Jala-Piña Margarita Cocktail, Written by David Edessa

Cinco de Mayo is around the corner. It’s time to reacquaint ourselves with tequila. Last year I wrote a post called Save the Water and Drink Tequila. I shared some fun tequila facts and also some tips for making the perfect margarita.  Today, this recipe, Jala-Piña Margarita cocktail, will be the focus.  It’s a drink with a Mexican flair.

Don’t forget to check out last year’s Cino de Mayo cocktail recipes like the Strawberry & Rhubarb Pulco Cocktail or my recipe for Margarita Spiked Watermelon.  Still craving some tequila?  Check out this tangerine margarita recipe.
