1 1⁄2 oz Cynar
1⁄2 oz Lemon juice
2 sli Pineapple (Rings, cut into quarters)

Muddle pineapple rings and Peychaud's. Add remaining ingredients and shake well over ice. Double strain. Lemon twist garnish.


Cynar and Tequila are both smoky, and this highlights them. Nice texture, complex in the midpalate, savory and bitter back.


A piña is the name given to the core of the agave plant, from which tequila is made. Agave piñas resemble pineapple fronds.

Dan commented on 2/22/2011:

Good cocktail, but a rather sweet. Would benefit from more bite from acid and alcohol. Suggest flipping Cynar and Tequila ratios, adding more lemon, and perhaps reducing Cointreau or eliminating it add upping the orange bitters (maybe Angostura orange). Promising.
