Mash a little fresh mint leaf and zest one lime put that in the bottom of your glass cover with ice...then mix separately about 1 ounce lime juice, 3/4 ounce orange juice, 3 ounces of mint green tea, and 1-2 ounces of tequila(I prefer silver!) add that to your glass, garnish with a sprig of mint and a lime or orange slice. ;)b
NOTHING beats a fresh margarita... fresh lime juice plz... none of this pre-mixed B.S. they sell... yuck
Frozen watermelon mojitos! Yum!!! :D
I make my own cucumber infused vodka. One 1/2 gallon of Trader Joe's Vodka of the Gods and 1 large English cucmber sliced about 1/4 inch. Put these two ingredients in a glass jar (I have an infuser jar but a sun tea jar would work, too as long as you can get the lid on airtight). Let this sit for 2 weeks, shaking once a day. On the 14th day, strain the cucumbers out and put the vodka back into the original bottle (make sure to save it). Then, here's what I do with it...
Make the best bloody mary EVER! Use the cucumber slices for garnish. In my bloody mary I also add JD's bacon flavored salt and wizard's worchestershire sauce plus fresh grated horseraddish. You can't beat the cucumber taste in the bloddy mary! ;)b
strawberry daiquiris, for sure. I just went strawberry picking last week, then had some friends over and we made some...so so tasty! Even better when you put a whole berry or two on top. mmm
tequila sunrise is my all time fav, I look making them and putting extra cherries in it. :)
I started drinking micheladas in Mexico-- it's a beer cocktail, basically.
You start with a cold mug, then rim the glass with salt and chili pepper. Then in the bottom you throw a bit of lime juice, vegan Worcestershire sauce (yeah Wizard!), and a dash of hot sauce, then add ice and the beer. Stir, and serve! Sounds weird, but I LOVE IT. I'm not much for sweet cocktails, so other than the bloody mary, there's not too much out there for the savory crowd, but I adore this one.
wooo congrats, hope you get to have some fun parties with the ideas from that book : )
