When most people think of drinking a tequila-based beverage, a Margarita usually comes to mind. Well, that and blacking out. Tequila Sunrises are also fairly common, but there are dozens of other cocktail options that take advantage of this distinct Mexican liquor.
Mix it up this weekend and give one of these lesser known tequila delights a try:
2 parts tequila
34 parts agave nectar
1 part lime juice
4 chunks of pineapple
2 basil leaves
Mix pineapple and basil leaves in a glass. Add the rest of the ingredients and shake vigorously with ice until blended. Strain into an ice-filled glass. Garnish with more pineapple and basil.
