I recently became obsessed with pineapple in cocktails, so I decided to create a Pineapple & Coconut Margarita to savor a recent sunny afternoon. This cocktail will make you feel like you have escaped to a little tropical island.

Pineapple & Coconut Margarita

  • 2 oz tequila
  • 2 oz pineapple juice
  • 1 oz coconut milk
  • 1–2 tsp agave nectar, to taste
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1 cup ice, divided use

Garnish: coconut chips; mint sprig
Glass: Rocks

Add all the ingredients to a cocktail shaker and shake.

Strain over ice into a rocks glass with the remaining 1/2 cup ice.

Top with coconut chips and a mint sprig.
