– 2oz lime juice

Martini, Tequila,

Today is one of our favorite days… it’s National Tequila Day, AND it’s FRIDAY! Today, we’re celebrating with Ms. @worldofjobiz with a Yappy Hour & a Dirty Dog Martini… For those of you with puppies we’d recommend one of these as you wind down with your fur-babes. The syrup we made was all kinds of crazy, using agave with bacon (yes BACON!), basil and jalapeno. We simmered that for a bit and made our simple. When we made this Dirty Dog (which I might make again, even without the bacon garnish), we added tequila, a 1/2oz mezcal since I mean, you gotta have both today, right?!, lime juice and a smidge ancho reyes. It was totally different but in a good way!! @theoneandonlyronda – hope you and Jojo are “treated” to a fabulous weekend! Cheers!
How To: In a shaker, muddle 2 thin slices cucumber. Add ice and remaining ingredients. Shake and serve in a salted martini glass. Garnish with jalapenos and candied bacon.
