When life hands you lemons, make lemonade... then spike that lemonade and forget all about the lemons you were handed in the first place. Ok, maybe not the healthiest approach, but an effective one nonetheless. Feeling a little beat down lately, I decided it was time for a delicious cocktail recipe... something summery that would take the edge off. I started with 2 shots of white tequila down in the shaker. (I'll be honest, I bought Espolon because of the cool black and white illustration on the label... I mean, c'mon, it's a skeleton riding a rooster. How could I resist?) Next, I muddled cucumber slices and fresh basil, then added a splash of lemonade. After a few good shakes, I strained out the muddled shrapnel and poured the delicious nectar into a chilled glass with ice. A sprig of basil and two or three cucumber rounds were added for aesthetic appeal and there was only one thing left to say - wow! Refreshing, delicious, and beautiful. So take that, life... keep on throwing those lemons, I'll just keep making them awesome.
