Tequila Screwdriver

Aug 29, 2016 1 min.

I had some leftover orange juice from my Sunday morning mimosas and an almost empty bottle of tequila - so I made something that wasn’t terrible. 2 oz tequila 2 oz orange juice 2 dashes of bitters 1 Tbsp grenadine Shake & pour over ice, topping off with club soda. Apparently this is basically a Tequila Sunrise but different. I’d like to think that the addition of club soda makes it more fun and refreshing!

Cucumber Mint Margarita

May 4, 2015 1 min.

The warm weather this weekend in New York City put me in the mood for margaritas. This, combined with the 5 hours of pre-Kentucky Derby coverage, inspired me to make a mint version of a cucumber, jalapeƱo, cilantro margarita that I used to enjoy back in San Antonio. Here is the result. In your Boston Shaker, muddle: ~5 / 6 slices - Cucumber ~8 - Mint leaves 1.5 Tbsp - Agave Nectar (I used 2 Tbsp and it seemed a bit sweet) Add the juice of 1 lime and 4oz tequila (white).
