It's time to turn up the heat for happy hour! Put down the margarita glass and try a new classic tequila cocktail. Perfect to impress your girlfriends for ladies' night!

The Matador cocktail combines three Mexican exported ingredients: tequila, pineapple juice and limes. This cocktail is not as well known as the classic margarita, which also uses tequila, but is just as tasty and simple to make. The Matador cocktail is served differently than a margarita, either in a cocktail (or martini) glass or a Champagne flute.
