Hello, Spring? Are you out there? Time for some wishful drinking.
Check out the Cucumber Margarita from Gerber Group's The LCL: Bar & Kitchen in New York.
3 slices of cucumber
2 slices of lime
1 slice of orange
0.25 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
2 oz. Casamigos Silver Tequila
.5 oz. of Triple Sec
In a mixing glass, muddle cucumber, lime, orange, and cayenne pepper. Add Casamigos Silver Tequila and Triple Sec. Shake and strain into rocks glass. Garnish with cucumber slice on straw.
Let's down a few of these and see if the weather warms up. What do we have to lose?
Please, Mother Nature. Please.
