This drink is a great cocktail for long-time tequila fans as well as those a little more wary of the agave-based spirit. The moreish, fruity flavour and long, refreshing serve of this drink make it a great way to introduce those less familiar with tequila to the many wonders of this delectable spirit. However, the spirit-forward flavour compared to a classic pina colada makes this a great cocktail for more seasoned tequila drinkers as well.
A simple, shaken mixture of just four ingredients, this drink is easy to make at home and can even be pre-batched to serve en-masse at parties or throughout the day while you relax in the sun.

Inspired by the classic holiday cocktail, the Pina Colada, this tequila twist is a little drier and a little more boozy but still boasts all the coconut-pineapple deliciousness of the original.
Our tequila spin on the classic rum-pineapple-coconut blend utilises Cazcabel’s coconut flavoured tequila with a boost of blanco tequila, pineapple juice and aromatic bitters to create a long fruity cocktail that is a tad lighter than the Pina Colada and packs a bit more of an alcoholic punch.
