The sweetness of the agave nectar and pineapple paired with the smokiness from Mezcal results in a fresh and cooling cocktail. As soon as the drink hits your lips, you can’t help but picture yourself at the beach.  It’s the perfect little “getaway!”


  • 1 handful of Jalapeño, diced
  • 1 handful of Pineapple, diced (SAVE A FEW SLICES FOR GARNISH!)
  • 2 Tablespoons of agave nectar
  • 1 handful of mint
  • 1/4 Cup of  orange liquor
  • 1/4 Cup of mezcal
  • 1 Cup of pineapple juice
  • 2 limes, juiced


  1. For Garnish, On a hot grill/grill pan/or stove top, cook a few pineapple slices on each side for 1-2 minutes. You want the slices to be slightly golden in color, not burnt.
  2. In a cocktail shaker add a handful of pineapple chunks, handful of jalapeño chunks, agave nectar, and mint. Muddle together for a minute until pineapple has been smashed and their juices have been released. Next, add in  orange liqueur, mezcal, pineapple juice and lime juice. Shake well for about 30 – 60 seconds.
  3. Strain cocktail into a glass filled with crushed ice. Garnish with charred pineapple slices , jalapeño dices, and mint.


For a stronger smokey flavor, we suggest charring the pineapple diced for the drink as well as the garnish.
