Pina en Fuego

Pina en Fuego

Ingredients:

1 slice of jalepeno (or to taste)

2 chunks fresh pineapple

3/4oz. lime juice

1/2 oz. simple syrup

2 oz. Mezcal

ground pepper

Directions:

In a shaker gently press jalepeno to express oil. Add pineapple and muddle. Add

remaining ingredients except black pepper and shake with ice. Strain into a rocks glass

with 3 ice cubes and garnish with a sprinkling of fresh ground black pepper.

Tip: over muddling the jalepeno releases it’s tannins and turns the drink bitter and

unbalanced. Simply press it gently until you hear it crunch. The finish of black pepper

acts as an irritant, opening all your taste buds making room for the full experience of

both sweet and savory at the same time.
