Pineapple Basil Caesar

Pineapple Basil Caesar

The sweetness of pineapple, spiciness of tequila, and herbiness of basil all have one thing in common: they work well with pepper. Pepper is the key to this drink, and the basil, tequila, and cracked black pepper rim combine to create a trifecta of pepper in your mouth!
