Today may be Monday, but Thursday is Valentine’s Day!
What are you doing this year? Stephen and I are keeping it low-key with pizza and a movie. We’ve been focusing on the Oscar nominations. So far we’ve watched A Star Is Born and Bohemian Rhapsody. We’ve clearly got a long way to go lol.
After dinner though, we’re making these delicious Jalisco Iced Tea Cocktails with Partida Tequila (c/o). This drink is the perfect sexy drink for Valentine’s Day OR on the flip side a night with your girls. This cocktail and Rom-Coms totally mix!
Tequila is actually my drink of choice, but I’m having a harder time with it as I get older. Partida is made with Blue Agave and focuses on flavor so it’s really changing the way I drink tequila. I only want Partida and love finding ways to mix it into cocktails.
This recipe is Partida Tequila’s, but I just had to try it out. Scroll to the bottom for my YouTube tutorial (and a hilarious blooper!)
To make the Jalisco Iced Tea cocktail, you will need:
-2 oz. Partida Reposado
-1 oz Chai Tea
-1/4 oz Honey
-1/2 oz Fresh Lemon Juice
-2 oz Elderflower Lemonade
For Chai tea: steep one tea bag in 8 oz of boiling water for 3-5 minutes.
For cocktail: Shake and strain ingredients into a rocks glass over ice. Garnish with a lemon wheel and mint leaves.
It’s really easy to make and tastes delicious! It’s the perfect drink for all occasions and I will be drinking these every weekend during the summer. The crisp, cool and refreshing taste can’t be beat!
Do you love tequila? What are your Valentine’s Day plans?
