Margarita, who? This mezcal pineapple cocktail is so easy-drinking and refreshing.

This recipe comes from the Tex-Mex cookbook Amá, written by Josef Centeno, chef-owner of Bar Amá in Los Angeles. Here's why he loves it so much: "Smoky mezcal, fresh pineapple juice, serrano chile, and cilantro—this is one of my favorite cocktails. The mezcal gives it some edge, and the pineapple makes it easy-drinking."
