if you're anything like me… you'll be scanning the internet this morning for some cocktails to accompany your memorial day bbq this afternoon! so i'll keep it short and sweet and share this tequila based cocktail with you that is perfect for kicking off the unofficial start to summer.

  • 4 oz. cranberry juice
  • juice of 1 half of a lemon
  • juice of 1 whole lime
  • 2 oz. soda water
  • 1 sugar cube
  • 1 mint leaf
  • 1 mint leaf and 1 edible flower for garnish

combine tequila and lime in your glass or shaker and muddle. add all other ingredients and mix (drop in sugar cube and let dissolve before adding ice). pour over ice, add your mint leaf and flower as garnish.

mix up a big batch and keep the soda water on the side to add in later if your serving a group.
