Cheers to a New Year!

December 27, 2013

Jane Coxwell’s cookbook, Fresh Happy Tasty, was aptly named; her recipes (Diane’s favorites!) are always bursting with fresh, green herbs. So when we asked her to share a New Year’s cocktail, it’s no surprise she mixed beautiful greenery into this very potent punch.

Tequila, Lime and Jalapeno Cocktail

Serves 1
This is one festive drink.  These measurements are for one serving but this is cocktail is definitely for sharing so just multiply according to your guests.

1 shot of ice cold tequila (I used Patron)
1 teaspoon of freshly squeezed lime juice
1 teaspoon of agave nectar
1 tablespoon of roughly chopped cilantro
A couple of slices of jalapeno chili
1 cup of good quality sparkling wine

Mix the tequila, lime juice, agave nectar, chili, and cilantro in a glass and stir vigorously. If you have a cocktail shaker, shake with some ice and pour into a glass. Then add the sparkling wine.

Put your glasses in the freezer for a few minutes before using to keep the drink really cold and fresh.
