TRY 100% AGAVE TEQUILA
On a hot summer afternoon, we like it as a tall drink with ice and soda, as simple as possible. Before dinner, though, we kind of prefer the cocktail version, but lightened up with a little splash of soda. Either way, the Tequila Daisy is an excellent reminder that even in the world of drinks; progress comes with its own costs. Why don’t you try this.
• 2 oz. 100 percent agave Reposado tequila •
3/4 oz. fresh-squeezed lime juice
• 1/2 oz. artisanal/natural grenadine
• 1 oz. sparkling water Optional, but recommended:
• 1 dash absinthe
Shake the tequila, lime juice, and grenadine well with ice.
Strain into 8 Oz highball glass full of cracked ice.
Top off with 1 Oz chilled sparkling water.
Stir briefly; garnish, if you like garnishing, with lime wheel; and add a straw.
If adding absinthe, strain instead into a chilled cocktail glass, adding only ½ Oz sparkling water.
