Sipping Saturday 

 Happy Weekend!

It’s been extremely hot, humid and just plain sticky in the Rio Grande Valley.

Keeping hydrated at all times is the key in surviving our current weather.

Last week I shared one of my go-to aguas to help beat the summer heat.  Agua de pepino

That day I made a huge pitcher and sipped the heat away. Later in the evening as I enjoyed a movie with my hubby I drizzled in a bit of tequila to my agua de pepino.

Remarkable! I knew I was on to something.

I had planned on focusing on only cucumber as the flavor, but at the last minute decided to add watermelon for color.

What a combo. Both flavors came together so easily and the tequila did not at all hinder the ”cooling”

quality of the margarita.  This is exactly what I was after.  A margarita that offered both great flavor, but gave the tongue a replenishing hit.

But be warned my margarita maniacs this stunner will sneak up on you.

I should know.  I had four(smile).

  3. Saw the pic on Serious Eats and couldn’t resist dropping by. A quick question about the recipe:

    The ingredients call for cucucmber juice, but the method says to blend cucumber. Do I juice the cucumber separately, then combine this juice with the agave, lime and salt; or do I just blend the seeded / peeled cucumber with the agave, lime and salt, as per the agua de pepino recipe? Thanks!

    • Hey Matt!!
      thanks for stopping by!! Yeah, now reading the recipe it does sound confusing, lol Blend the cucumber (peeled,diced and seeded) with the lime,salt and agave like the agua! Let me know how you like them!!
