While the Margarita might get all the attention, if you are looking for a picture perfect tequila based drink with only lime, pineapple juice, and simple syrup then look no further than this refreshing drink called the Matador Cocktail.
- 3 ounces pineapple juice
- 1.5 ounces tequila
- .5 ounce simple syrup
- 3 lime wheels
In a cocktail shaker filled with ice combine pineapple juice, tequila, simple syrup, and 2 lime wheels.
Shake for 30 seconds
Pour into cocktail glass
Garnish with 1 extra lime wedge on top
Tips for Making This Drink:
- This can be served in a martini glass or champagne flute.
- If you shake this well enough you'll get a frothy top to it which looks stunning on presentation.
- Always use fresh limes
- Canned pineapple juice is fine as long as you would be willing to drink it (and enjoy it on its own)
