Smooth, spicy and oh-so-easy to drink- there’s a storm a comin’ when you start drinking these delicious Tropical Thunder Pineapple Cinnamon Palomas. While these are DANGEROUSLY easy to polish off, they are super simple to make- which I guess is a good thing, and a bad thing. But I digress- YOLO!

These non-traditional Paloma cocktails are made with Pineapple Cinnamon Infused Tequila, pineapple juice, fresh lime juice and agave nectar. The cocktails are then garnished with a cinnamon sugar rim, and a pienapple leaf. They are incredibly simple to make, and the infused tequila and cocktails can easily be doubled, tripled, etc to accommodate more guests.

Planning ahead for the perfect cocktail

Having a ladies’ brunch or dinner party, and want to serve a killer cocktail? This drink is for you.

Need a drink right now? Don’t worry, I got you! Check out my other cocktail recipes here.

Shake, Spritz, Salute!

Once you’ve got a batch of Pineapple Cinnamon Infused Tequila ready to go, all you need to do is add it to a shaker or mason jar with the remaining cocktail ingredients, shake well, pour over ice and top with a bit of sparkling water. If you are doing the (highly recommended) cinnamon sugar rim, you’ll want to rim the glasses before filling with ice, and delicious booze.

This recipe yields 2 drinks, but as I mentioned before- the tequila and the cocktail are easy to increase, depending on your party. You could also make up a pitcher of the cocktail in advance, and let guests top off their cocktails with sparkling water, if desired.

pineapple leaf garnish

I love to garnish these cocktails with a pineapple leaf, because they are so pretty- but you could go sans-garnish, or even garnish the glasses with wedges of fresh pineapple or lime.
