A Drinkypoo For You
When I was in Vegas I had a drink called the Spicy Lover at the Rhumbar at our hotel. It was delicious! So delicious, in fact, that I was determined to learn to make it at home. I finally succeeded last weekend and of course I want to share my success with all of you.
3 oz. silver tequila
3 slices english cucumber, peeled
1 oz. lime juice
1 oz. sweet agave nectar
3-6 drops Tabasco
Muddle cucumber, cilantro, agave nectar and lime juice. Pour into a cocktail shaker and add ice, tequila and Tabasco. Shake & strain into a martini glass. Garnish with cucumber wheel.
Sip. Dream of Vegas.

oh you are making one of these for me. you had me at cilantro.
Sounds great! I’ll have to try it. Does silver vs regular tequila make a big difference?
Oh yummy! So that’s why you were on the hunt for agave nectar at Whole Foods last week!
OOoo, that sounds good. I don’t generally do cocktails but I do like tequila and having grown up right close to New Iberia I’m a big Tabasco fan.
*Sigh* I am medically enjoined from alcohol. *Sigh*. The dreaming of Vegas part I can do.
(How does one muddle something, culinarily speaking?)
Oh my that does sound good.
Yowza! My muddle techniques are fairly lame. My homemade mojitos still need a little work. Any tips?
That does sound good! I would never have thought cucumber would go into a cocktail.
OMG!! I’ll get fresh cilantro today. You sure know how to pick ’em!!
Is it wrong that I want a drink at 8:45AM?
Mm….sounds like a great summer drink!
That sounds fabulous!
I love it when you cook.
You lost me at cilantro, but I’m happy that you figured it out and can now have that drinkypoo at home.
That sounds very interesting!
sounds like one fab drink 😉
Thanks for sharing (and saving me $20. Or were these cheaper than the bloody mary’s?)
Mmmm… tequila. i’ll have to remember that bar when I’m in vegas in May.
Thank you! That sounds very fancy. I’m not much one for a drinkypoo, but I have felt like having one or seven this week.
no effing way.
…okay maybe on Friday when the whole famn damly is here. oh hell, I’ll be drinking straight tequila by noon, who am I kidding? ;op
