Pineapple Mezcal Cooler Cocktail
27 Aug 13 2
Kathy uses an un-aged mezcal in this cocktail but any style would work well. A fresh sage leaf shaken in adds a dusky flavor. You can also make it with silver tequila, if you don't have mezcal. The Fresh Pineapple Agave can be made ahead with your Vitamix The Quiet One Blender, and is great as a non-alcoholic beverage when a bit of soda water is added.
