The Memorial Day Bloody Maria
If you’re anything like us, you probably have some extra tequila laying around from your Cinco de Mayo celebration. And if you’re anything like us, you probably only ever drink tequila in Magaritas (or, of course, solo as a shot)! But that’s all about to change. Just in time for Memorial Day, we want to remind you of one of our favorite Fab & Fru uses for tequila: The Bloody MARIA!
New Take On A Classic Fave
You all know by now that being Fab & Fru requires a lot of creativity – but not a lot of cash. By substituting your leftover Tequila – instead of Vodka – in your Bloody Mary, you’ll not only use something you have on hand, but you’ll also treat your guests to an unexpected delight! And recycling and reusing is all the rage, right?
Make it Extra “Especial”
For an extra Fab & Fru presentation, just creatively label the drinks – all you need to do is stick a sign on a sombrero, it takes only two seconds, but makes it seem more special. Another nice touch is to frost your cocktail glasses in the freezer for an hour before serving – it costs you nothing but definitely makes the bevvies look and taste even MORE Fab!
There are of course tons of recipes out there, but here is a basic one from our very Fab & Fru friend, Andrea Moya:
Makes 2 drinks
3 oz. of Tequila
1 1/2 cups low sodium chilled tomato juice
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon horseradish
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
Garnish with your choice of cucumber wedge, celery stalk, or a piece of jicama
Combine all the ingredients. Stir well. Pour into 2 tall frosted glasses with ice cubes. Garnish to taste.
Gracias to Andrea Moya for the Fab idea! Anyone else have unexpected uses for Tequila? We want to hear from you – let us know!
