Minty Monday — Mint & Lime Tequila Refresher!

16 Apr

As the Texas summer begins, and 100 + days are headed our way, we’re all going to need some refreshing. Queue mint & lime tequila refresher! A bubbly drink with a zip to cool off the hottest of days. To start, you’ll need:

  1. Leaves from 1 medium bunch of mint
  2. 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon superfine sugar
  3. 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  4. 1 1/2 cups silver tequila
  5. Ice cubes
  6. 24 ounces chilled club soda

In a large cocktail shaker, muddle the mint leaves with the sugar and lime juice. Strain into a small pitcher and stir in the silver tequila. Fill 6 highball glasses (or larger, as shown below) with ice and pour the cocktail over the cubes. Top each drink with club soda and serve. Tada!

To mix up the flavor a bit, or add something fruity, you could substitute the club soda for sprite or sprite remix! Happy Minty Monday.
