In today’s topic, tasty tequila drinks you can easily make at home. I hope to inspire you, to step out of box and try something that perhaps you never thought of. So I have scoured the universe in order to find a few recipes that I sincerely hope that you will give a try. Now then shall we get right to it?
CASA GINGER MINT PALOMA:
If you do not like ginger, then I suggest that you skip over this one and move on to the next recipe. First let us start with the ingredients.
2oz of casamingos reposado tequila.
1.5 oz of grapefruit juice.
1oz of fresh lime juice.
Half .05 oz of a simple syrup, ( sugar and water that has been brought to a boil )
8-10 mint leaves.
Preparation is as follows.
Muddle some mint leaves, muddle means to crush up to bring out the oils and flavor. Combine all ingredients in a shaker, add ice, and shake vigorously for around 8-10 seconds. Fine strain into a highball glass, do not worry if you do not have a highball glass, any tall glass that you have lying around will work just as well. We try not to stress out a lot here. After all we are trying to have a good time right? Now add some fresh ice to the glass and garnish with a grapefruit wheel and a mint sprig. Sounds refreshing does’nt it? My mouth is watering just writing about it. Too bad I am stuck at work, with nothing but a Mt. Dew. Please do not go anywhere, I still have two more drinks to share with you. You should know by now, that I am not just give you one and be done. The next cocktail is even more enticing.

Oh I know, just the sound of a margarita makes me think of Tijuana. And just in case you are wondering, no I did not eat the worm. Want to know how to make this fabulous cocktail? good here we go so buckle up buttercup.

Stir all the ingredients with some ice, pour over a large format ice cube. A big chunk will be fine. Pour into a rocks glass, or a short glass you have in the kitchen cabinet is okay as well. All that is left to do now, is to garnish the drink with an orange peel, and it’s oils. Sit back and enjoy. This is a perfect cocktail to entertain any buissines lunch guests. Or just to impress some old college buddies. When I said tasty tequila drinks you can easily make at home, I was’nt joking

I mean come on just look at the sheer beauty of it. Right now I wish that I was at home with the wife. I would certainly be mixing a couple of these up for the two of us. knowing me, I would probably make a pitcher of it, and drink the night away.

Thank you for stopping by today, I look forward to hearing from you soon. And remember please drink responsibly and do not drink and drive. I am so sick and tired of going to funerals. If I never have to go to another, that would be absolutely fine with me. Plus the life you save just may very well be your own life. Enjoy the parties that we attend, just make sure that when you leave those parties, that you are sober enough to drive safely. Know that I am working hard for you. It does me no good if you go out and drink. Thenget behind the wheel of a car and kill yourself or someone else. I think this pandemic has taken enough lives, don’t you? So do me a huge favor won’t you? Stay home and make these easy tequila drinks. Have a great night friends
Love always John D.
