The Pineapple Sage Tequila is a refreshing use of herbs in a cocktail. The pineapple flavor smooths out the bitterness of the sage and the reposado tequila is just the right transition agent needed to bring it all together. One sip of the refreshing cocktail and you will be ready for anything your day brings. Another great recipe from the Food Network magazine.

  • Pineapple chunks
  • Sage leaves
