The weather here in WI has been darn near perfect this past week!  After a very long winter, I yearn for these beautiful, warm summer days.  I live to be outside, soak up sunshine, and walk around barefoot.  The simple things that make summer...well summer!  Laid back living!  Monday evening it was a balmy 87 degrees at 6:30pm.  We shook up some Cucumber Fizz, grabbed a good book, kicked back in our outdoor loungers, & enjoyed the glisten of the sun.  This inspiration comes from my friends at  Seaside Kitchen.  Be sure to use a premium really does affect the outcome.  We are big fans of Mejor Pink....made from the pink agave plant.  The taste is very smooth and a bit sweeter than the typical silver tequilas, which have a bit of a peppery after bite.  Mejor is produced in small batches, meaning very pure and clean....LOVE THAT!


1 shot good tequila
2 tblsp cucumber puree*
Juice from 1 lime
Ice cubes
Lime wedges and cucumber slices for garnish

Put tequila, cucumber puree, and lime juice in a cocktail shaker with some ice and shake the you-know-what out of it (have you seen a shake weight commercial??).  Strain the contents into the glass with ice and top off with Perrier.  Garnish with lime wedges and cucumber slices.

*Peel and seed 1 small cucumber.  Pulse in a food processor until smooth (you can add a couple drops of water if you're having trouble getting it to the right consistency.

ENJOY!  Eat Well & Be Happy!
