For the Glass (optional):

For the Drink:

  • 3 oz White Tequila 78g, I use Milagro
  • 3 oz Pineapple Juice 90g
  • 2 oz Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice 56g
  • 4 tsp Grenadine* see note


  • Mix the salt and sugar in a small bowl large enough to dip the rim of the glasses with. Rim a low-ball cocktail glass with a lemon wedge, then dip into the salt mixture, shallow for a little or deep for a lot! 
  • Combine the tequila, pineapple and lemon juice and grenadine into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well and strain into a low-ball glass filled with ice. Garnish with a lemon slice.


*I just started making homemade grenadine. It's worth the effort. First make pomegranate molasses, then the grenadine. It lasts forever in the fridge and is so easy to make.
