Orange Strawberry Tequila Fizz

This drink  reminds me of the warm beaches of Mexico, its beautiful people and the grand time we had there.  Since Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner it’s a perfect time to have a tequila inspired drink. Not that I need an excuse to have a good cocktail.

Kurt and I must have been Mexican in our previous lives. We love Mexico, adore Mexican food and are avid collectors of tequila. Drinkers of tequila as well I must add. My Russian family laughs at me because I’m not much of a vodka drinker but I surely do love good tequila.

One tequila, two tequila, three tequila, floor!

Experts say that a shot before lunch can stimulate the appetite, and one after a big dinner can aid digestion. Pairing that shot with a glass of water is a good way to go. The sugars in 100% agave tequila are simple sugars, so they break down easily in our body. The problem with tequila we get in the States is that it contains as much as 49% of sugar based alcohols and that can only lead to one thing…. hangover. That’s why, if you ever run into Kurt and I at the airport on our way back from Mexico, you’ll hear our luggage clink. All those bottles… :)

My Orange Strawberry Tequila Fizz couldn’t be any easier to make. The flavors of muddled strawberries, fresh juices of orange, lemon and lime are refreshing and delicious.

    I wish that I was in Mexico right now, sitting by the beach, drinking this drink! I’ve never been to Mexico before, but we live pretty close so I’ll have to get down there soon! I also happen to love tequila :)

    Just look at that beautiful color! The flavors in this sound amazing. And I didn’t know tequila’s here had that much sugar based alcohol! Eeek! What’s your favorite tequila to buy state side? I usually stick to silvers. If I’m feeling rich, I get Patron silver. If I’m on a budget it’s Cuervo silver. Haha!
