The cinnamon sugar rim adds an unexpected, delightful touch. Here’s how to make this refreshing cocktail.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Rim your glass with cinnamon sugar. To do this, rub a lime wedge around the rim of the glass, then dip the rim into a plate of cinnamon sugar to coat it evenly.

Combine the Ingredients:

  • In a cocktail shaker, add 20 ml of Cointreau, 45 ml of Sierra Silver Tequila, 20 ml of fresh lime juice, and 15 ml of fresh pineapple juice.

Shake Well:

  • Fill the shaker with ice and shake vigorously until well-chilled. This ensures that all the flavors are well mixed and the drink is nicely chilled.

Strain and Serve:

  • Strain the mixture into the prepared glass filled with fresh ice.

Garnish:

  • Garnish with a fresh pineapple leaf or a slice. For an extra touch of elegance and flavor, consider grilling or dehydrating the pineapple slice before garnishing.

Notes

Grilling or dehydrating the pineapple slice enhances its natural sweetness and adds a smoky depth to the garnish, complementing the tropical flavors of the cocktail.
The Cointreau Pina Margarita is perfect for those who enjoy a tropical twist on their cocktails. Its combination of tequila, lime, and pineapple juice with the unique addition of a cinnamon sugar rim makes it a standout choice for any occasion. Enjoy this refreshing and flavorful drink and bring a taste of the tropics to your next gathering.
