As ridiculous as it sounds, I’ve had a Lady GaGa song called Poker Face stuck in my head since the beginning of the summer. In an unlikely coincidence while looking for a cocktail recipe, I stumbled across a tequila based drink that shares the same name as that catchy tune. While this delicious alternative to a margarita may have nothing else in common with that song, it is certainly a great way to beat this October Houston heat- 92 degrees! A word of advice though…don’t drink to many of these or the buzz might be harder to get out of your head than that crazy song.
- 1 1/2 oz of Tequila
- 1/2 oz of Cointreau
- 4 oz of Pineapple Juice
Pour all ingredients over ice in a large highball glass. Garnish with a slice of lemon or lime.
