  • 3 ounces limeade
  • 1/2 cup fresh pineapple cubed + wedges for serving
  • 6 ounces Mexican beer I used Corona
  • 1/2-1 ounce gold tequila optional

Tequila Soaked Pineapple (Optional)

  • half a pineapple cut into wedges
  • 1 lime sliced
  • tequila for soaking
  • salt + chili powder optional


Tequila Soaked Pineapple

  • Add the pineapple wedges and lime wedges to a bowl and cover with tequila. Try and make sure the wedges are mostly submerged. I found using a shallow 8x8 inch baking dish worked best. Soak the pineapple for 1 hour or overnight. You can then use the pineapple to mix with the drink (remove the rind before blending) or to serve on the side of the drink. I used mine only on the side of my drinks and sprinkled them with a little salt + chili powder.


  • Add the cubed pineapple and limeade to a blender and blend until smooth. Pour over a glass of crushed ice. Add the beer and tequila (if using) and stir to combine. Garnish with a slice of pineapple and mint leaf if desired.
