My newest luscious libation infuses the tea in the ice cubes which then incorporate evenly into the drink as the blender crushes them.
Ingenious? Probably not.
Happy Cinco de Mayo!
1½ oz tequila (recommended: Partida Blanco)
1 oz cointreau
¾ oz fresh squeezed lime juice
½ oz simple syrup
1 lime wedge
2 tsp sugar
1 cup Lemongreen, frozen into 10 or so ice cubes
Rub the lime wedge around the rim of an margarita or old-fashioned glass. Dip and rotate the rim in the saucer of sugar, making sure to keep the sugar on the outside. In a blender, combine the green tea ice cubes, tequila, lime juice, Cointreau, and simple syrup. Blend on the pulse setting until slushy. Pour into the sugar-rimmed glass.
