Just in Thyme for National Tequila Day!
July 23, 2015
Once again it’s time for one of our favorite made-up holidays, National Tequila Day!
July 24th is celebrated as National Tequila Day, but Dedicated Readers will know that pretty much everyday is NTD around here!
Okay, so let’s celebrate with a drink recipe, shall we?
Tequila Thyme Lemonade
2 oz Silver Tequila (break out the good stuff for this…)
1/2 oz Lemon Juice (fresh-squeezed of course)
1/2 oz Simple Syrup (you know how to make this by now, don’t you???)
2 Generous Lemon Wedges
6 Sprigs of Fresh Thyme
Put the lemon juice, one of the lemon wedges, five of the thyme sprigs and the simple syrup into your shaker and muddle to break down the lemon and thyme. Add the tequila and a good handful of ice or two and shake until well-chilled (or until the darn shaker gets so cold you can’t hold the sucker any longer!).
Take a spiffy glass and add some fresh ice. Strain the tasty liquid into same…
Garnish with the remaining thyme and lemon slice, take a couple of pictures, and drink away!
Since it’s predominantly tequila (and not like that’s a bad thing…) this is a slow-sipping beverage, but it doesn’t seem too strong at all. Tart and refreshing, this is a great drink to celebrate National Tequila Day on a steamy day in July!
This recipe came from Total Wine, so a big two thumbs-up to them! Hope you try and enjoy this! Please be sure to Like and Share with your adult-beverage-loving friends!
Back to the kitchen (with a stop at the bar on the way…), see you again soon!
