Summer “Tequila Bliss” Cocktail
It’s summer and the best way to cool down during these months is with a refreshing, light and low calorie cocktail! :) This summer through this Covid pandemic has been a very weird time for everyone. I noticed a lot of people are drinking margaritas and my local liquor store here in Nashville said they can’t keep a lot of good Tequila in stock because of it. It’s funny because I never use to drink much Tequila until recently, I am usually a vodka soda or wine kinda girl. I never really got into good or bad Tequila until Casamigos became popular. I tried Casamigos because of the hype and thought wow this is really good and a lot of restaurants also carry it as well when ordering a Margarita. One day while visiting my favorite liquor store I said I like the Casamigos but I would really love to try some other brands and so we did some taste testing! Hahaha :) I tried a few high end brands and by far found my favorite and I drink nothing else but this brand since that day! And the winner is…………..wait for it……..
I am literally OBSESSED with this Tequila I love the Blanco for margaritas and my signature cocktail “Tequila Bliss ” but I also love the ANEJO for sipping with ice or for doing a shot when in the mood. This Tequila brand is so smooth it is scary and it puts you in the best mood. :) I made my Tequila Bliss yesterday and my dad tried a sip and I said “what alcohol do you taste it this? ” he guessed Vodka! That’s right….this cocktail is so smooth and because this brand has no harsh taste you can’t even taste the Tequila. It is so refreshing and light and the perfect drink to enjoy this summer without all the sugar and calories. Here is how I make it:
WHAT YOU NEED:
- Los Arango Blanco Tequlia ( there are NO substitutions this brand is a must) Disclosure it is pricey at $45 a bottle but it is well worth the price true me on this.
- Fresh Mint Leaves
- Organic Blue Agave – I use brand Wholesome
- Club Soda
- Cocktail Shaker
First, prep your ingredients….cut your limes, get your mint leaves, measuring spoons and shot glass with oz measurements and you are ready to make the best cocktail ever.
RECIPE FOR ONE DRINK:
- 1 oz Los Arango Blanco Tequlia
- 1 teaspoon Blue Agave
- 1 TBSP fresh lime juice
- 1 TBSP fresh mint leaves
- Splash of Club Soda
- 1 cup of ice
GARNISH PER GLASS: A lime slice and more fresh mint
In your cocktail shaker, first add 1 cup of ice, then 1 TBSP of the agave, mint leaves, lime juice and then the 1 oz of Tequila. Next, put the top on and shake very well to mash up the mint and make sure all the flavors are combined. Then add more ice cubes to a glass and pour the mixture into your glass. Last, add the club soda over the top and garnish with your lime slice and fresh mint!
This drink will be your new “go-to” summer cocktail and it’s as pretty as it is delicious!!!
I HOPE YOU LOVE THIS COCKTAIL AS MUCH AS I DO!!! HAPPY SUMMER!!!
