A new cool refreshing drink. A glass filled to the brim with ice. Ahhh. Summer. It’s here.
When it comes to adult beverages, I’m pretty picky. I don’t like beer. I only like wine that doesn’t taste like wine. And for the most part, if I’m going to have a cocktail, I want the girliest kind possible. You know, like something along the lines of a Strawberry Colada. High maintenance, maybe, but I think I just know what I like and it seems to be drinks that don’t taste a lot like alcohol.
So when I heard about the new Teagarita from the folks at Jose Cuervo, I was, of course, a little intrigued. A new alcoholic beverage, with the addition of iced tea. It sounded pretty much up my alley.
And it was.
The first time I served it was at a recent dinner party. The icy cold drink was the perfect counterpart to a hot summer’s day. It has the unmistakeable tang of a margarita, and the punch of tequila, but with the sweetness of a glass of refreshing iced tea.
Which is to say, it goes down nice and easy.
And we finished the bottle.
For summertime entertaining, I like that you can serve up cocktails to friends without having to measure and mix and spend your night as a bartender. Less time mixing, more time catching up with friends.
Which is pretty much the best way to entertain.
Now, since we’re talking about entertaining, you’ll want to fix some easy and delicious food to go along with your Teagarita… I served it with this Carnitas Salad, a super simple crockpot meal with all the Mexican fixins’ to go along with it. A little homemade salsa and chips and you’re done.
Teagarita only came out a few months ago, but you’ll be able to find it at your favorite liquor store. For more information on Jose Cuervo Teagarita, visit their Facebook page.
