Happy National Tequila Day!Now it’s time to have a drink
Aaaah it’s Friday and it's National Tequila Day! As an adult every Friday in the summer feels like it’s the last day of school before summer vacation. You know that feeling? That feeling of spending all day outside in the heat playing in the pool and not having a care in the world or heading on that boring family vacation (which by the way you now value going to see the Grand Canyon). Now Fridays are full of getting everything tied up before that 9AM Monday conference call and how you are going to squeeze in some down time over the weekend. Well you are in luck! We are here to give you the ultimate weekend tequila drink recipe to cool you down in the heat (yes, you are too old to go pool hopping).
Our friends over at Mason Shaker have created the ultimate set of drink tools any novice or expert bartender needs. They even gave us this delicious Jalapeño Avocado Margarita recipe:
3 shots tequila
1.5 shots Cointreau
1.5 shots lime juice
2 slices avocado
2 slices jalapeño (plus 2)
2 sprigs cilantro (plus 2)
1) Add the avocado, jalapeño and cilantro to the Mason Shaker.
2) Muddle the ingredients in the bottom of the Shaker until the avocado is thoroughly mashed.
3) Add tequila, Cointreau and lime juice to the Shaker. Add ice to above the liquid, and shake vigorously for 20 seconds.
4) Strain the cocktail into two rocks glasses filled with ice, and garnish with remaining cilantro and jalapeño slices.
* Makes two drinks
Don’t worry if you are getting on a plane this weekend and can’t make a drink at home, we got you covered! Just when you thought Mason Shaker was cool they just got cooler with their handy dandy Carry On Cocktail G & T kit and they are 15% off. Yes it’s true we wouldn’t lie to you.
