I’m finally trying to get back into the habit of regular blogging. May was a bad month for me illness-wise, so I’m hoping June will treat me better. I’m finished with hospital visits at least until July. I have so many posts I need to get to. I hope I have the energy.
Back in May, for cinco de mayo, I bought the big bottle of Patron. We had traditional margaritas and then the tequila sat around. We aren’t big tequila drinkers, mine due a college incident that involved me and half a bottle of the stuff; I’m sure you can imagine the rest.
So I began looking for interesting drinks involving tequila and came across this one. It sounded refreshing and I love cucumbers.
My goodness, was this tasty. Nice and cooling on a hot day. I could sit outside under an umbrella drinking a few of these.
makes 1 drink
1 Tbl sugar
1 oz fresh lime juice
¼ c thinly sliced English cucumber
1 ½ oz silver tequila (I used Patron)
1 oz Cointreau
Pour sugar and lime juice to glass tumbler. Add cucumber and muddle. Add the tequila and Cointreau. Fill glass with ice and stir.
