Carrot Orange Tequila Cooler

Carrot Orange Tequila Cooler

Let’s think about the weekend for a sec. It’s Monday. Wait… that’s all we’re thinking of, right?  Weekend plans make week days less stressful.  Let’s think about possibly working out (with friends?) and then having cocktail(s) afterwards because that’s how weekends go. A balance of work and play. Keyword= balance.

I made this drink to balance out a really good workout. It’s a detox/retox combo!  The fresh carrot juice (Vitamin A & B Vitamins!) and orange juice (Vitamin C like whoa!) combine forces to bring you good health while providing the sweet juice base for our cocktail. The grated ginger will help ward off sickness (while packing a punch!) and the Silver Patrón Tequila (with smooth citrus notes & light pepper notes!) is the special reward you deserve for your hard work.  It’s both refreshing and thirst quenching. I’d even say it’s a good replacement for a weekend Bloody Mary (my husband agrees).

And we’re off.

Simple ingredients pack a punch!

Fill a jar with grated ginger & ice…add your agave…

OJ goes in.

Followed by the Silver Patrón Tequila.

And then we squeeze in the fresh lime juice. We could give it a good stir and then put a straw in it.

Or we could take our time…

Add ice to a tall glass…pop in a straw…and then add an orange slice.

We’re celebrating the weekend early.

Cheers!
