I love the texture of this gazpacho when ingredients are diced by hand. If you prefer a smoother soup, or to sip it in a shot glass, simply puree the ingredients in a blender or food processor—reserving some of the diced pineapple, golden pepper, cucumber and red onion to add for texture/garnish.

Super easy

Ingredients

For 1 Batch(es)

Recipe

  • 1 large pineapple, peeled, cored and diced
  • 1 mango, diced
  • 1 golden bell pepper, seeded, diced
  • 1 English cucumber, diced
  • 1/2 small red onion, diced
  • 2 teaspoon(s) minced, fresh ginger

  • 2 cup(s) pineapple juice, coconut water or orange juice (or any combination)
  • 1 cup(s) chilled 100% agave silver tequila

Lucinda’s Gazpacho Borracho Directions

  1. Place the diced fruits and vegetables in a large glass bowl. Mix in the ginger, jalapeños or serranos, cilantro/mint and season with salt and cayenne. Add the juice, tequila and lime juice and chill at least 4 hours or overnight. (The flavor of the tequila will mellow.)
  2. Because fruit flavor varies, taste to adjust the balance of sweet and acidic—add more tequila, fruit juice and/or lime juice, as needed. Serve ice-cold in chilled bowls or pureed in shot glasses.
