Today, February 22, 2010 is National Margarita Day. What does this have to do with tea you ask? Well I found a few tea margarita recipes on the net..
For each glass, you will need:
1 lime or lemon wedge
sugar to coat rim of glasses
1/2 to 2/3 cup of strongly brewed Teavana lemon green tea frozen into 6 to 8
small ice cubes in the freezer
2 1/2 tablespoons (1 1/4 ounces) premium tequila such as Cuervo or Patron
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon Cointreau or Grand Marnier
2 tablespoons sugar
Rub the lime wedge around the rim of an old-fashioned glass. Dip and rotate the rim in the saucer of sugar, making sure to keep the sugar on the outside. In a blender, combine the green tea ice cubes, tequila, lemon juice, Cointreau, and sugar. Blend on the pulse setting until slushy. Pour into the sugar-rimmed glass.
