in honor of national tequila day (last week - yes, i missed it but better to celebrate late than not at all, right?), your perfect antidote brings us the weekly nightcap featuring, you guessed it, tequila!
I have no idea where I heard of this drink. I know for a fact that I didn’t come up with it, but I can’t imagine this is a real drink anywhere.
I do remember thinking the first time I heard it that it didn’t sound very good. My problem was that I like tequila, but I’m not a big fan of margaritas. So when I heard of this tequila drink with a secret mixer I was a little skeptical. But the truth is it’s a perfect summer time drink for me.
The secret ingredient?
That’s right, the citrus-based soda Fresca. It’s perfect. It’s light, refreshing, citrusy, and…well…awesome.
So I have decided to call this drink a ‘Trailer Park’. Because although I can’t remember where it came from, I wouldn’t be surprised if it originated there.
By the way, when out of Fresca, Mountain Dew is NOT a suitable replacement.
makes 1 drink
1 1/2 oz Tequila (I like Quervo 1800 - Good Clean Fun likes Patron Citronage)
Fill highball glass with ice. Pour Tequila over ice. Pour Fresca to fill glass. Stir and serve.
