The Patron pineapple cocktail recipe is unbelievably simple. It shows off the tasty combination of pineapple and tequila and you need just a few common ingredients to mix it up. Once you realize the wonders of this mix, you can build on it and enjoy more tequila-pineapple drinks.

As you might gather from the drink's name, it features Patron Tequila, which is a very nice tequila to mix with fruit. The orange liqueur and lime juice are included for balance and should be staples in your bar. You can also add a couple of dashes of orange bitters for a nice finishing touch.

Tips

  • Blanco (or silver) tequilas are often best with pineapple, especially in very transparent drinks like this. If you're going to stray from Patron, find a blanco tequila of equal or higher quality (there are many options).
  • This recipe was written to feature the liquors of The Patron Spirits Company, which is why Citronge is recommended. It is a great option among orange liqueurs, but feel free to switch to your favorite.
  • Pineapple juice often comes in cans and it's nearly impossible to keep fresh. Small cans allow you to pour just one or two drinks at a time, so they're perfect for casual home use. Alternatively, transfer large cans of pineapple juice to jars.
  • Juicing fresh pineapple is easy with an electric juicer, yielding about 6 ounces per pound of fruit. If you don't have one, blend or muddle chunks of pineapple, then strain it; 1 cup produces about 2 ounces.

Recipe Variations

The pairing of pineapple and tequila is a perfect foundation for adding more layers of flavor. Experience it for yourself with one of these great recipes:

How Strong Is the Patron Pineapple?

The alcohol content of the Patron pineapple depends on the glass size and how much pineapple juice you add. Using two 80-proof spirits and a 4-ounce pour of pineapple, the drink's about 9 percent ABV (18 proof). It's a minor shift with more or less pineapple, but the strength will always fall between beer and wine.
