This spicy and fruity cocktail originates from a wonderful weekend in Banff, AB, Canada. It was a weekend spent with great friends, stunning scenery and good food. Dinner at the Park Distillery was filled with laughs, flambéed food and the purchase of a bottle of their signature Chili Vodka. Along with the bottle of vodka came a recipe card for The Sawback and I’ve had it squirreled away for just over a year because it’s perfect for Cinco De Mayo. A spicy cocktail made with the aforementioned Chili vodka, pineapple juice and lime juice. It has just the right amount of heat that makes you want to take another sip to cool the mouth with the refreshing pineapple juice, only to be caught in a sipping circle that‘s hard to stop. Don’t forget that chili vodka is also great to use in your favourite Caesar cocktail, Spicy Grilled Vodka Shrimp and perhaps a little spicy vodka penne. Enjoy!
Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with Tequila Pineapple Punch. A fruity drink made from fresh pineapple and spiked with tequila and white wine. Refreshing and fun to drink because of its fruity nature and because it’s made with all fresh fruits, it’s not too sweet. A great party drink for your Cinco de Mayo celebration or back yard BBQ this summer.
While many of us celebrate Cinco de Mayo for Mexican heritage and culture with Mexican themed food, drinks and parties, the people of Mexico celebrate for their victory over the French in 1862. So no matter why or how you celebrate, it’s always fun to celebrate with boozy beverages. Tequila Pineapple Punch is super easy to put together and easier yet to pass the pitcher around. Enjoy!
