This is a variation of a cocktail that was recommended recently in the New York Times. It is a fresh summer cooler that is sure to please. Pour ‘em good and strong!
- 1 ¾ ounces tequila (I prefer gold, and don’t waste money on a fancy one!)
- ¾ ounces fresh lemon juice
- ¾ ounces agave nectar
- ¾ ounces dry rose
Combine tequila, lemon juice and agave nectar in a cocktail shaker. Add ice and shake until your hand hurts. Strain into an oversized wine glass filled with ice. Slowly pour a layer of rose on top, being careful not to mix it in (you may want to pour over the back of a spoon). No garnish needed! Serve ‘em up and shout Arriba! Arriba!
