Care for a beverage? HG’s Kickin’ Key Lime Pie Martini
Look, tequila gets artsy fartsy! I was just reading on Cocktail Times how 1800 Silver is teaming up with nine artists throughout the United States and Mexico to create a fashion line of tequila bottles. How cool!
I usually prefer vodka, but I’ve been learning to appreciate tequila lately… and not in that “Oh my god, what happened last night?” kind of way. I tend to dig higher quality tequilas and preferably clear or “silver” tequilas. I’m also more of a sipper than a shooter. My body shot days are long since over… thank god. 8-/ I’ve never had 1800 Silver, but I might give it a go for one of these bottles!
Margaritas are such a perfect summer drink, so here’s a recipe for a super-cute and very delicious-sounding version, courtesy of Cocktail Times. That needs to be tried asap!
- 1 1/2 oz reposado tequila
- 3/4 oz Monin wildberry syrup
- 3 oz sweet & sour
Garnish: pink salted rim, lime wheel and lime twist
Mix tequila, syrup and sweet & sour in a cocktail shaker. Strain into a salt rimmed margarita glass (or short glass) over ice. Garnish with lime wheel and a twist.
