Pineapple-Tequila Cooler

I thought it was hot in Austin. It was–but now that I’m back in Florida I’m sweating daily. Not the same kind of “hot” like Austin, but the humid-hot. So what better way to cool off than this Pineapple-Tequila Cooler. Don’t fret, if drinking alcohol isn’t your thing you can easily omit the tequila and make this a non-alcoholic pineapple-lime cooler. Both ways it is equally good!

Cutting a Pineapple - Pineapple-Tequila Cooler from #recipe #drinks #summer #tequila
I recently received a box of new fruit tools from OXO. One of the first tools we tried out was the Ratcheting Pineapple Slicer. I hate cutting pineapple and always task my husband with the job of doing it. Now that I have the pineapple slicer, I can cut pineapple with ease! I made a fun animated gif to show just how easy it is to use/cut pineapple! And we learned after the first sliced pineapple that you want to put a bowl underneath because the slicer extracts a lot of juice! So far we’ve found that we get about 1 cup of juice from every pineapple. So I just strain the juice before sealing it in a jar and then I either add it to this drink or save it to be used within a day or two.
