So today being #NationalTequilaDay prompted me to create a little tasty libation in honor of Tequila. I like “good” tequila and in my opinion Herradura is among the finest. I’ve had lots of good (and sadly some really bad) tequila but Herradura is always my go-to. Today’s recipe uses .
- 2 parts Herradura Reposado Tequila
- 1 part freshly squeezed lime juice
- 1/2 part Chambord
- 2 parts Black Cherry Juice (most grocery stores carry on juice aisle)
Add all ingredients to a shaker and give it a stir. Add ice and shake within a inch of it’s life. Strain into a Nick & Nora glass. (My favorite glass). I chose not to garnish, but if you have Fabrri Amarena or Luxardo Cherries on hand, OhMyYum.
This recipe is not sweet. It’s actually quite bright in taste. The fresh lime juice surges to the forefront, but that is quickly followed by the silky smoothness of the tequila and dark cherry juice. This new creation of mine will be in heavy rotation at parties or on an afternoon where I simply want a fresh drink that’s light and smooth. #EnjoyResponsibly.
