Easy like Sunday morning. That's this drink. Simple with no fuss, yet still interesting enough to make for friends.
Olmeca Altos is one of many great tequila brands that will be pouring cocktails at our May "Tres de Mayo" event. We've served it before and we're big fans. It's reasonably priced yet still super smooth.
And just to prove you can do more with tequila than make margaritas, we're making this cocktail. After a quick "ice muddle" with fresh cilantro, it's topped with another one of our favorites, Jarritos pineapple soda.
2 oz Olmeca Altos Plata Tequila
3 sprigs fresh cilantro
Jarritos Pineapple soda
wedge of fresh pineapple
Add two sprigs of cilantro to the bottom of your shaker and add a few cubes of ice. Cover and shake it a few times to 'muddle' the cilantro and release aromatics - but not so much that it's pulverized. Add tequila to shaker, swirl it around to make sure you get all the flavor from the cilantro and add to glass. Top with chilled soda and garnish with the third sprig of cilantro and a wedge of pineapple.
