Spice up your cocktails

In order to grill your ingredient properly, Keep these tips in mind while grilling:Make sure your grill is hot, but the coals are lightly layered and not flaming, so ingredients don’t become too charred. If using a gas grill, turn the burners down to low. Check ingredients every 30 seconds or so, until they have distinct grill marks but are not ashy.

  • Use long tongs and a heavy duty grill glove to pick up and take off ingredients, which are smaller and trickier to handle than meat or fish.
  • Instead of muddling fruit directly into a drink, you can use it to infuse simple syrups for a more subtle flavor.
  • Using a mini-smoke box, you can smoke herbs, berries, and even a cocktail glass by setting the woodchip-filled box atop your grill and letting your ingredients hang out while you flip burgers.

Here is a nice recipe:

Grilled Pineapple Margarita

The Margarita is essential to America's canon of summertime drinks, and adding a grilled element makes it that much more American. Burnished pineapple adds a rich layer of fruitiness while mezcal lends a veil of smoke and spice. For even more smoke and spice, add a salt rim laced with chile powder and coriander.

In case the whole process didn't work as plan you can always drink a nice boutique wine from Miami Wine Buzz that was deliver to you previously to the experience.

Always nice to have a back-up plan. 

A Carmenere or Cabernet Sauvignon from Villasenor Wines to pair with you Red meat on the BBQ should do very well.
