Earth Day Cocktails from Sauza

We’re going green this Earth Day!  And not with envy, although we can’t promise that your friends won’t be jealous of these earthy cocktails.

These green cocktails are Mother Nature-approved with herb ingredients like fresh mint and sage leaves.

Go Minty Green
  • 1 part Sauza® Blue Silver 100% Agave Tequila 
·        2 ½ parts club soda 
·        1 part fresh lime juice 
·        1 bunch of fresh mint
·        1 part sugar 
·        Ice 
·        Salt to rim (optional) 
·        Extra mint leaves to garnish 

Preparation: In a glass, muddle together the mint leaves, sugar and lime juice until they start to melt together. Add tequila. Fill glass with ice and pour cocktail mixture 3/4 of the way to the top of each glass. If you want, rim your glasses with salt by rubbing the rims with a lime wedge and dipping in a plate of salt. Fill each glass with club soda and garnish with an extra sprig of mint.
