We are taking an epic family road trip (cue the sandwich dance) to Lake Michigan that will include a ferry ride, lots of beach time, all the Italian Ice we can possibly handle, and very little sleep. I’m buying Armando a Member’s Only jacket just for the trip, so follow along on Instagram for all the latest updates.
The ultimate cucumber mezcal cocktail
How to make cucumber mezcal margaritas by the pitcher
They looked so good that, guess what, I made a pitcher. You can cut the recipe down to only make one or two drinks or but why would you go through the trouble of hauling out the juicer for one measly drink?
That being said, you certainly don’t have to make these cucumber mezcal margaritas with a juicer. You can also chop up the cucumbers and blend them with the mezcal in a blender, then strain out any bits that might be left over—or leave them in (fiber!).
Invite some friends and make a round, just don’t drink them while you’re driving and stuff.Print
