Earth Day Cocktails with Organic Tequila

| 2 Comments

This post was supposed to have photos.

OK, so several weeks ago, Casa Noble tequila sent me some samples and a gift card to Whole Foods to help me come up with a great cocktail recipe for you guys for Earth Day, because Casa Noble tequila is all organic!

Cool, right?  I mean, you guys know I am all over that.  An organic, Margarita-esque experience?  Bring it on!

Check this out:

Casa Noble ultra premium tequila begins with carefully selected mature Blue Agave plants, which have met our strict requirements for water and sugar content.

We employ only traditional methods and slow cook our rich agave piñas for 38 hours in stove ovens. Then, using only the core and heart of the agaves, we extract our sweet nectar. Our fermentation process is 100% natural, followed by triple distillation. The result is a tequila so pure and full of Agave flavor that it has elevated the concept of tequila to new levels around the world.

And they’re absolutely right: This tequila is very fruity—almost sweet in and of itself.  It didn’t need anything too cloyingly sweet, so I decided to mix it up a bit with some exciting flavors.

And I did!  And it was REALLY pretty.  I mean, really pretty.  Pink fizz.  Green freckles.  Pretty!

I set up my photo shoot, and took pictures!  Because all blog posts (or at least the ones about food and PRETTY COCKTAILS) are better with pictures, right?

And they have disappeared.

*SIGH*

So here is the tequila:

And here is the grapefruit juice, all ready to turn my cocktail a frothy, beautiful pink:
