Happy Hour: Tequila Cocktail

In my opinion, tequila is an underrated liquor. I usually only use it to make margaritas or take shots. However, I've recently decided to experiment with the Mexican spirit in other drinks, like the cocktail seen here. This recipe was surprisingly refreshing and not too strong.

I definitely plan on making it again, perhaps as an alternative to margs at my next fiesta. To see how I made it,

Mmmm, I love tequila, and finding new ways to use it. @shoneyjoe http://www.kashrut.com/articles/liquor2/ gives the Kosher For Passover rundown on beers and liquors. Tequila not the only kosher choice for Passover, not by a long shot. I think you friend just liked his tequila.

I've never been the biggest tequila fan, but it has its place now and then.A friend of mine said that tequila was the only kosher for passover hard alcohol and that thus tequila was all he subsisted on during the holiday. Anyone out there want to confirm or deny?
