Pineapple Mint Tequila Mojito - a delicious and refreshing cocktail! | ChezCateyLou.com

It’s finally Friday! I don’t know about you, but I could use a cocktail (or two)! This refreshing pineapple mint tequila mojito will do the trick! This cocktail is delicious.

I decided to put a sugared lime rim on our cocktails because it looks so pretty – and because I am a fan of sugar if you couldn’t tell.
