I’ve thought I had my Memorial Day weekend menu all planned out, but I almost forgot the cocktails! I love making refreshing, cool cocktails for our friends and family. I’m partial to margaritas and mojitos, so I’m always looking for cocktails with a citrusy or minty flair.
Below is an amazing minty tequila cocktail recipe that we’ll be trying out this weekend.
2 oz Herradura Silver
½ oz Freshly squeezed lime juice
½ oz Simple syrup
1 inch Cucumber (diced)
6-8 mint leaves
Garnish: Cucumber disc and a mint sprig
1.) Place mint then cucumber into a cocktail shaker and gently crush with a muddler.
2.) Add the Herradura Silver, simple syrup and lime juice to the shaker.
3.) Fill shaker with Ice and shake vigorously to break down the mint and cucumber
4.) Strain through a fine strainer (to remove all the little bits of mint) into an Hi-ball glass filled with cubed Ice and top with soda.
5.) Garnish with a cucumber disc and a mint sprig.
