This was one of my favorites and I couldn’t be more pleased with the results. Pineapple and tarragon all summer long!
Thanks to everyone who suggested a drink, or voted.
Now find yourself a ripe pineapple and have a cocktail.
Happy Summer, everyone!
Once again, the recipe:
The Moon Safari
We got our pineapple juice by pureeing pineapple in a blender and then straining it into a glass. It seems like 1 pineapple will give you just shy of 2 cups of juice using this method.
Update: We made this recently using a different tequila (a cheaper tequila) and it was off. The tequila was too strong so we needed to up the amount of juice we used. Make a test cocktail before proceeding. Use good tequila. !!!
The Moon Safari (inspired by a drink at The Breslin)
