Mexican Dream Instructions

The Mexican Dream is a delightful cocktail that combines the richness of tequila with the refreshing flavors of pineapple and lime. This tropical drink is perfect for any occasion, whether you are lounging by the pool or hosting a summer party. The Mexican Dream is easy to make and will transport you to a beach resort with just one sip.

To make a Mexican Dream cocktail, you will need a shaker filled with ice. Start by adding 2 ounces of tequila to the shaker. The tequila is the star of this drink, so be sure to choose a high-quality brand for the best flavor.

Next, squeeze the juice of half a lime into the shaker. The lime adds a tangy kick to balance out the sweetness of the pineapple juice. Freshly squeezed lime juice is preferred, but you can also use bottled lime juice if that's what you have on hand.

Now it's time to add the pineapple juice. Pour in 4 ounces of pineapple juice, which gives the Mexican Dream its tropical taste. Look for 100% pineapple juice without any added sugars or artificial flavors for the best results.

To sweeten the cocktail slightly, add 1/2 an ounce of simple syrup. Simple syrup is made by dissolving equal parts sugar and water, and it adds a touch of sweetness without overpowering the other flavors in the drink. You can make your own simple syrup at home or find it at most grocery stores.

Once all the ingredients are in the shaker, it's time to shake it up! Secure the lid tightly on the shaker and shake vigorously for about 10 seconds. This will chill the cocktail and mix all the flavors together.

When you're ready to serve, strain the cocktail into a glass filled with ice. Garnish with a lime wheel or pineapple wedge for an extra touch of tropical flair. Sip and enjoy the Mexican Dream, a cocktail that will transport you to a beach paradise with just one taste.

Best served in a Hurricane Glass.
