I just turned THIRTY (WOW, I know…) and in reflecting on this year I noticed a few things:
- I don’t go out NEARLY as much anymore. You know– maturity.
- My cocktail orders when I do go out have drastically changed. Goodbye to the days of ordering tequila soda lime (with muddled cucumber if I was stepping it up a notch) and hello to chic tequila cocktails with different juices and garnishes infused to make mouthwatering masterpieces.
- Nights IN with friends, enjoying a home-cooked dinner while sipping tequila cocktails might be my favorite thing in the world.
And because of all this… I’ve become QUITE the bartender! Skinny Margaritas are my favorite drink to order when I’m out, so it was the first cocktail I HAD to master at home. Today I’m sharing my three favorite tequila cocktail recipes, all made with Nosotros Blanco tequila! For those who missed my announcement last month about my exciting new partnership with the brand, Nosotros is a small, LA-based tequila company serving the HIGHEST quality, gluten-free, craft, premium tequila I’ve experienced to date. Linking them here so you can check out more for yourself, and read a fun interview I did with the team!

When I think of Fall and the holiday’s (can you believe they are just around the corner already?!) I think of warm blueberry muffins and blueberry pie. Given I like my margaritas year-round, incorporating blueberries into the mix has been the obvious move this Fall. Introducing my Blueberry Lime-arita.
1/4 cup muddled blueberries + more to add to finished dink
1 T freshly squeezed lime juice
1 T agave
2 oz Nosotros Blanco
8 oz club soda
