Happy National Tequila Day Part II

I took a nice long 5-mile walk today, worked on taking some pictures down by Classon Point Park in the Bronx and in honor of a nice afternoon well spent, I decided to make a variation of my Agave Margarita. Hey, it is National Tequila Day right? Why not have another cocktail. For this one, I altered the recipe somewhat from the original. Here is the original:
Agave Margarita
1.5oz Sauza Tequila Blanco
1oz Homemade Sweet and Sour
.5oz Agave Nectar
.5oz Triple Sec
Splash of Orange juice

Directions:
Fill a glass with ice. Add the tequila, sweet and sour, agave nectar, triple sec and orange juice to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake and pour into the glass.

Here is the one I used for today's cocktail:
La Agave Rubia
2oz Sauza Hornitos Tequila Plata
1oz Grand Marnier
1oz Fresh Lime Juice
.5oz Agave Nectar
Splash of Lemonade

Directions:
Fill a glass with ice. Add the tequila, Grand Marnier, agave nectar, lime juice and lemonade to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake and pour into the glass.
The drink was quite refreshing after my walk. The agave and Grand Marnier were the sweet aspects of the cocktail while the tartness came from the lime juice. The Hornitos Plata just lounged back hanging out waiting to be drank with the rest of the ingredients. Que rico!!! So nice I had to make another one.


Now go out and have a few tequilitas.

Until Then Happy Drinking,
