With the long balmy nights approaching, this Cocktail Friday, the refreshing combination of lime with tequila in the Tequila Blu Cardamom Mojito is on my drinks list! With the nutty taste of this blue agave Mexican tequila mixed with the aromatic spice of cardamom and the sweetness of sugar, just imagine a tray of these cooling aperitifs as a welcome drink at your reception or a relaxed summer engagement party!
– 3 lime wedges
– 1 teaspoon vanilla sugar
– 45 ml Tequila Blu
– 2 dashes cardamom bitters
– Crushed ice
Muddle (bartender lingo for mix!) the lime wedges and a teaspoon of vanilla sugar in a tall cocktail glass.
Add the Tequila Blu, cardamom bitters, 6-8 mint leaves and a scoop of crushed ice.
Add a dash of soda water and fill glass to the rim with additional crushed ice.
Garnish with mint and a lime wedge – enjoy!
