To finish out our series for National Tequila Day, we thought we’d wrap up with a nice after-dinner cocktail. The Tequila Mockingbird, besides being really fun to order in a bar, is a minty, but not overly sweet drink. It’ll compliment a dessert, but isn’t one on its own. Like any drink that features crème de menthe, be sure to adhere to the recipe closely, the mint flavor could easily overwhelm everything else in the drink.
2 ½ oz tequila
½ tsp white crème de menthe
1 Tbs lime juice
Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice. Add all three ingredients and shake thoroughly. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
