Oh hey again! I have decided to start a little monthly segment and I’ll be calling it “Margarita of the Month”. As you might have guessed, I will be sharing a margarita that fits the month or holiday within it. I personally love margaritas and more specifically I really like tequila. Tequila actually has a lot of health benefits (as long as it’s a high quality agave tequila) first and foremost it is a pro and prebiotic which aids in gut health, immune system support and it even helps with lowering blood sugar and cholesterol. Keeping your marg clean and not adding a ton of sugar is key though, if you start adding a bunch of junk it’s going to counteract some of the benefits of tequila. I wanted to showcase the versatility of tequila. Generally speaking most people view margaritas as a summer cocktail so I will be trying to share recipes that convert with the time of year, margaritas are for every month they just need a little tweaking.
When it comes to making our drinks I personally like to use Patron silver or 1800, it costs a little more but the taste is so much better and like most things you are paying for quality. I decided to craft up a Strawberry Rhubarb Margarita this month. It’s the start of fall and I know most people think of pumpkin but I immediately think of strawberry rhubarb pie. Pie is full of sugar so why not find a way to get that delicious flavor without all the sugar? Convinced yet? Haha I am. Scroll down for a step by step recipe!
|1 pint of strawberries, sliced||1 oz fresh lime juice|
|1 1/2 oz tequila||1 stalk of rhubarb peeled and chopped|
