Tres Agaves Margarita Kit


Tres Agaves, a local Tequila producer, contacted me to see if I wanted to try out their new margarita kit. They must of known I needed a drink!¬†Tres Agaves’ entire product line has been carefully designed to help people make a delicious margarita at home using the only agave nectar that is cocktail-ready¬†‚Äď in addition to their award-winning line of tequilas.

The kit makes over 12 margaritas and includes: Tres Agaves Blanco Tequila (100% agave /unaged), Cocktail-Ready Organic Agave Nectar and a custom lime squeezer.

What makes the lime squeezer special? Built in measuring cups! Smart design.


The Tres Agaves Margarita

– 2 ounces Tres Agaves Blanco tequila
– 1 ounce agave syrup
– 1 ounce fresh squeezed lime juice

Shake with ice and strain into a glass with fresh ice.


This was a fabulous margarita. It had the perfect balance of sweetness to alcohol and I had a nice buzz after only one drink. Best part it’s low in calories! I think I see the next fad diet…

Note: If you are too lazy to squeeze the limes and pour the nectar try the 68 calorie margarita mix.

Sweet Tea Mojito

Mike made these per my request on the 4th of July to accompany our Southern themed meal. This is the kind of cocktail where you can slam 4 without noticing. It tastes really good. We made way more than was needed for the number of guests we had over so days later the liquor is much more pronounced and I’m still sippin’ on them. It does take some effort to make but well worth it. I found this recipe in the Aug/Sept issue of the Food Network magazine.

Lagerhead Black & Tan Turtle

beerturtleAfter our St. Patty’s day celebration we were left with a bunch of Guinness and Harp Lager so I attempted to make Black & Tans. I had no luck using the back of a spoon as many websites instructed. When I saw the Lagerhead turtle at Sur la Table a couple days later I thought I’d give it a try. Well, check it out. The key is to have a LARGE head on the first beverage poured into the glass (the one thing the websites neglected to mention). We have only used the turtle twice but so far it works fairly well.

Now that I know about the head it probably would have worked with a spoon… oh, well another kitchen gadget to add to our collection. Bonus: the turtle mouth doubles as a can opener.
