This stunning, refreshing drink caught my eye on Facebook, thanks to Delish. And it promised to drown my end of summertime sadness. Doesn’t tequila help with a number of sadnesses? The end of summer is certainly one of those. I don’t know about all of you, but I wasn’t ready to face the hustle and bustle of school. My work schedule hadn’t changed and the kids being in different camps at different ends of town didn’t help matters. But it was still summer. The evenings were for playing. The weekends for enjoying the pool, having friends over for BBQs. It now, alas, was all coming to end. How do I face it? How do I accept it? What’s that? Have some tequila? Absolutely!
1 c. ice
1 1/2 oz tequila (come on, you can add some more. You know you want to. I won’t judge, promise)
4 oz orange or grapefruit juice (I used orange)
1/2 oz grenadine
Maraschino cherry or mandarin, for garnish (I didn’t do garnish, still tasted amazing)
Fill glass with ice, tequila, and juice. Add grenadine. Add garnish, if desired.
Total time: 5 minutes
