Herradura Refresher

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.

Herradura Refresher

2 oz Herradura Silver
½ oz Freshly squeezed lime juice
½ oz Simple syrup
1 inch Cucumber (diced)
6-8 mint leaves
Top soda
Glass: Hi-ball
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.
