DIY: The Gallery Bar Pineapple Margarita

Mel (1)

A word from Mel...

“I was working at a bar with pretty limited resources when I initially built this margarita variation,” says Melvin Reynolds, master of bar at NeueHouse Madison Square Gallery Bar. “As a result, this drink is super easy to make. It’s made with simple, everyday ingredients, that combine to make a drink that’s unique and delicious. Lemon is uncommon in margaritas but here it smooths the sharpness of the lime and cuts the mellow sweetness of the pineapple. Mijenta Reposado provides the smoothness of an aged tequila without being too sweet. And dash of bitters make it pop.”
