THE SLOWPOKE RODRIGUEZ AT BORRACHA'S
Warm weather is finally upon us.
The warm weather we have been wishing and praying for all winter has arrived and we need some fab cocktails to sip on in the summer sun. The Slowpoke Rodriguez cocktail from Borracha's in Vegas is perfect because lets face it, Vegas knows how to keep cool in the heat.
So many fun and summery things are in this glass as both the strawberries and the mint can be purchased fresh from your local farmers market. Lots of crushed ice and the fab addition of hibiscus syrup and to top it off, I am a tequila lover myself (hello Patron, remember me?) so this is definitely going to be my go to cocktail for summer '17. Shake it up, its time to drink fabulously.
Borracha's Slowpoke Rodriguez
10-12 Mint Leaves
1.5 oz Talero Silver Tequila
1 oz Fresh Lime Juice
.75 oz Monin Hibiscus Syrup
1.5 oz Club Soda (add after shake)
Add strawberries, 6 mint leaves, and hibiscus syrup into mixing tin. Lightly muddle to press the juice out of the berries and release fragrance from the mint. Add ice and shake vigorously. Top with 1.5 oz. of club soda and strain over crushed ice with 6 mint leaves on the bottom of the glass. Garnish with sliced skewered strawberries, sliced limes, and mint sprigs.
