Mezcal: trending! Like tequila, mezcal is made from the agave plant, but it’s got an inherent smokiness, too. If you haven’t had it before, this cocktail recipe is a great place to start.
- 3 cups pineapple juice, chilled
- 1 cup demerara or raw sugar
- Maraschino cherries and cocktail umbrellas (for serving)
Combine pineapple juice, mezcal, and lime juice in a large pitcher. Cover and chill until cold, about 30 minutes.
Place sugar on a small plate. Rub a lime wedge on rim of an 8-oz. glass. Dip rim into sugar. Fill glass with ice cubes and pour in pineapple mixture until glass is two-thirds full. Top with seltzer and stir to combine. Garnish with same lime wedge, a cherry, and a paper umbrella.
