Bite of the Chupacabra: A Mexican Tequila Cocktail

drink your veggies

Jen looked at me like I was crazy when I said I wanted to serve this drink at our Cinco De Mayo/Girls Day hang.  I believe her exact words, or sounds rather, were ewwww and some form of a blahhhh noise she made with her tongue sticking out.

Not unlike my eleven-year-old, I don’t think she could get past the idea of beet juice in a yummy cocktail. However, I persisted with this crazy concoction despite her reservations and proudly served it to our crew. 

The results were positive. Jen even liked it, and said it would make for a great post-party elixir. Could this be a replacement for her cherished Bloody Mary at brunch? Only time will tell. To your health!

P.S. This is just as good without tequila and is actually healthy. So, make one before your daily workout routine for an extra boost. Beets are supposed to do something wonderful cardiovascular related thing. It’s science. I think.
