Try 100 percent agave Tequila

Tequila Daisy

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.

Ingredients

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

 

Directions

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 1/2 Oz sparkling water.

Enjoy !!
