Pineapple Pico

  • SERVINGS: Makes 1 Drink

Pineapple pico de gallo, a spicy fresh relish, adds flavor and texture to this tropical drink. (Kathy Casey serves the cocktail with an extra-fat straw.) Serve any leftover pico de gallo with grilled fish or shrimp, on top of ice cream or panna cotta or as a dip with chips.
