How Caresha Please Tastes?

The Caresha Please is a cocktail with a spicy kick. It has a strong, robust flavor with a hint of sweetness. The heat from the jalapeno is balanced by the sweetness of the pineapple juice, making it a well-rounded cocktail.

Interesting facts about Caresha Please

  • The Caresha Please is named after Yung Miami, whose real name is Caresha.
  • This cocktail is known for its spicy kick, which comes from the jalapeno.
  • Despite its heat, the Caresha Please is balanced by the sweetness of the pineapple juice.


  • Tequila: 2 oz(60ml)
  • Pineapple juice: 1 oz(30ml)
  • Lime juice: 1 oz(30ml)
  • Simple syrup: 0.5 oz(15ml)
  • Jalapeno: 1 slice


2 oz of tequila is the backbone of the Caresha Please, giving the cocktail its spirited kick. Using less might make the cocktail too tame, while more could overwhelm the delicate balance. Miss it out, and you'd have a mocktail with zero buzz. If you're feeling adventurous, try mezcal for a smokier twist.

Pineapple Juice

1 oz of pineapple juice brings tropical sweetness that cuts through the tequila's heat. Too much juice, and you're at a beach party; too little, and the tequila might throw you a sass. Ditching it all together? Well, then it's not really pleasing anybody. Mango juice could give a similarly exotic yet different taste profile.

Lime Juice

1 oz of lime juice adds a citrusy zing, it’s basically the cocktail's zippy outfit. It keeps things balanced and bright. Skimp on it, and the cocktail might just frown at you. No lime juice? That's like forgetting your smile at home. Lemon juice could serve as a zesty backup, though.

Alex Green

Simple Syrup

0.5 oz of simple syrup is there to sweet-talk the bolder flavors into harmony. Too sweet, and the cocktail morphs into a dessert; not enough, and it may pucker up in protest. If you decide to ghost it, you'll miss the smooth talker of the group. Honey syrup can be a good alternative for a richer, more floral edge.

Emma Rose


A slice of jalapeno is the feisty friend who spices up the party. Forget it, and the cocktail becomes just another face in the crowd. Too many slices, and it's not a party anymore; it's a fire drill. No jalapeno? Maybe try a dash of hot sauce or a slice of serrano for a different kind of heat wave.

Caresha Sunrise

Swap simple syrup for grenadine Present in a tall glass with a grenadine gradient

Pour the grenadine into the glass first, then carefully add the shaken cocktail mixture over the back of a spoon to create a layered sunrise effect. Looks just as stunning as the original, but with a sweet pomegranate kick that makes it shine brighter than a morning sun.

Caresha Green

Replace tequila with green Chartreuse Add fresh muddled mint

Swapping the tequila for green Chartreuse brings a more complex, herbal layer while maintaining the kick. Adding freshly muddled mint gives a refreshing twist, turning the cocktail into a garden party in a glass.

Smoky Caresha

Use mezcal instead of tequila Add a pinch of smoked paprika

Embrace the smokiness by switching to mezcal and a pinch of smoked paprika. This Caresha is like taking a walk on the smoky side, inviting you to a mysterious, dusky rendezvous where each sip is a story told beside a crackling campfire.

Add your ingredients to the shaker first, then ice. Fill it up to ¾ of its capacity to ensure enough space for shaking. Hold the shaker with both hands (one on the top and one on the bottom) and shake vigorously. The shake should come from your shoulders, not your wrists.

Place your chosen strainer on top of the shaker or mixing glass, ensuring a secure fit. Pour the cocktail into a glass through the strainer, which will catch solid ingredients and ice. If double straining, hold the fine mesh strainer between the shaker and the glass.

The key to proper muddling is to crush the ingredients just enough to release their flavors and not overdo it. Over-muddling can result in a bitter taste, especially with herbs.
