Let’s cool off a bit.
I’m about to head out of town for a long, lazy week in the mountains with the family. I could not be happier about this. As the summer days grow longer and hotter, I find myself craving all things cool and refreshing. Like this lemonade.
It’s as sassy as my blueberry vodka lemonade, with a bit more sophistication and zip. Like a tequila version of a mojito. I can’t wait for one of these on the porch with a magazine and a dog at my feet.
a small bunch of cilantro, minced (save some for garnish)
lemons, sliced (save some for garnish)
Directions: First, sugar the rim of your cocktail glass. Do this by wiping the rim with a moist paper towel (or a bit of tequila!) and dip into the sugar.
Add ice and one part tequila.
Add the cilantro.
And a splash of seltzer and two parts lemonade.
A slice of lemon.
And a straw.
Hope you have a restful 4th of July! I’ll see you in a week or so.
