I learned about the Spicy Piña when cocktails relating to the Sex and the City 2 movie started coming in - in this instance representing "Smith". Since then, being the spicy cocktail lover that I am, it has become one of my many favorites. When treated correctly it has a perfect balance of sweet, sour, and spicy and the base spirit, Maestro Dobel, is the perfectly smooth tequila for such an application. I have not tried it with other tequilas, but have to say that this drink requires the smoothest tequila available to you and if you choose anything other than Maestro Dobel you may not have the same results.
