Heart of Agave Tequila Garden:
Tequila and mezcal come from the unlikeliest of sources: the roasted heart of the agave, a spiky desert plant. Roasting it caramelizes the sugar and results in a rich, smoky spirit. To the delight of mixologists everywhere, tequila blends well with spicy herbs like sage as well as sweet summer fruit. Try a twist on the classic margarita with watermelon and ‘Margarita’ mint.
Tequila Limón: Muddle 1.5 ounces tequila and Margarita Mint. Pour into tall glass filled with ice, top with sparkling lemonade. Garnish with more mint.
