Pairing Indian food with cocktails is notoriously tricky business. Throw a liquor notoriously hard to pair with anything but tacos in the mix, and you’ve really got your work cut out for you.

Thankfully for the world, Aliya LeeKong and the rest of the team at NYC desi khanna palace Junoon have solved the problem by tossing curry leaves at it. That’s right: curry leaves, a chili, pineapple, lime and tequila blanco. Throw pineapple slices on the grill for many reasons, but put garnishing your insanely refreshing Tandoori Tequila cocktail at the top.

Pairings? Glad you asked.
