Tequila • Sweet
Good Morning New Orleans

The Piña Colada’s rich, sweet mix of pineapple and coconut makes it a perfect morning sipper, even if you’re not relaxing on a tropical beach. But mixologists Phil Khanderish and Reza Esmali managed to make the cocktail even more exotic for NOLA's Maypop. "A luxurious eye-opener, this coconut rich cocktail is balanced by the savory notes of Chinese five spice,” they say. “Think Southeast Asian and tiki castaway together in a luscious tall drink." We suggest pairing it with a fluffy stack of pancakes, or some poolside sunscreen and a chaise lounge.
