tequila cooler

Earth day isn't just about planting! It's also about drinking cold cocktails while planting. I made Anders and I this refreshing (and deserved) cucumber tequila cooler after a long afternoon of working in the yard and it definitely hit the spot.

Cucumber-Mint Tequila Cooler
slightly adapted from a recipe in Cooking Light

2 cups of chopped English cucumber
1/2 mint leaves
1/3 cup of honey
1/4 cup of cilantro
Juice of 1 lime
Dash of salt
1/2 cup tequila blanco
3/4 cup club soda

Combine the first six ingredients in a food processor, pulse until smooth. Pour mixture into bowl, stir in tequila. Chill. Once cold, strain mixture. Stir in club soda. Serve over ice.

Seriously awesome.
