Tequila

My younger sister recently became engaged and to celebrate she hosted an outdoor party with our family and her new in-laws. It was a perfectly warm day for an outdoor event and to top if off, her in-laws had the most delicious cocktails ready to go. After taking a big sip, I immediately asked her fiance what was in them and was pleasantly surprised to hear they used tequila since it’s not usually my libation of choice…especially on hot Summer days! I was amazed how the flavor was so refreshing and light that I couldn’t get enough. It was similar to a Paloma but with a fruity/spicy twist! In honor of National Tequila Month, I thought it would be fun to share this recipe with our readers so that you can recreate it for your gatherings this Summer. Enjoy!

Infused water, sometimes called spa water or detox water, is a simple and delicious way to quench your thirst naturally — without any added sugar or artificial flavors. Below, three easy ways to DIY your own infused water. All you need is a mason jar!
