Camarena Tequila Tipple Toolbox

When I was younger, I was quite the party girl, I went out every night, had more than my fair share of drinks and lost many memories that are sure to be interesting stories if they could be remembered. 

Now that I'm an adult with kids of my own, I'm not interested in getting drunk for fun, it's not as fun as I remembered. But I do enjoy a small drink every now and then. Just something little to ease the day away, every once in a while.

A few nights ago, once all of our company started heading home, my fiance and I decided that we wanted a drink. Not 2 or 3 drinks... just one, kind of like a nightcap. Luckily enough I had recently received a Tequila Tool Box that was full everything we could possibly need to have a good time. That good time would have to wait for another night though, since we were not up for all of that commotion quite yet.

The Camarena Tequila Tipple Toolbox that I mentioned has almost everything that I could possibly ask for to create lots of mixed drinks. That's right.... My trusty little "toolbox" was full of goodies.... including a bottle of Camarena Tequila Silver. Among the other goodies I found a Citrus Squeezer, a Shaker, a Muddler as well as a Jigger.... All of those names were copied from the Cocktail Book that was also inside the box. I know the items as: A Lemon Squisher, A Martini Shaker, a Squisher Stick and a Double Sided Shot Glass :)

I had Alan make me a Skinny Tequini (without the Skinny), from the directions in the cocktail recipe book. I personally believe that he did a wonderful job! The drink had a very delicious and smooth taste to it and I could faintly taste the tequila without any hint of a burn. My fiance even took a shot of the tequila itself and said that it was very smooth to be tequila and the taste was "not bad at all" which in Alan's words... It was great! It looks like we found us a new drink to add to our list of enjoyments! My birthday is in less than a month and I still have plenty of tequila left, maybe that good time will happen sooner than I thought... We'll just have to wait and see!

Now you can have your own good time with the recipe for the Skinny Tequila. Let me know how you like it and if you kept the skinny or left it behind like my fiance and I.

Camarena Tequila Skinny Tequini

1 1/2 oz Camarena Silver Tequila
1/4 oz Creme de Cassis
1 oz Light Apple Juice (We used regular Apple Juice)
1/2 oz Light Cranberry Juice (Of course we use regular here as well)
1/2 oz Lemon Juice
Lemon Wheel Garnish (We left out the garnish since we had no need to be fancy)

Combine liquids in cocktail shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled martini glass. If you would like, Garnish with a lemon wheel. The Light Tequini will be 104 calories... I have no clue what our was since we didn't count calories.

Since I'm a mother and I've seen first hand, what can happen when someone abuses alcohol, I wanted to make sure that I ask for you all to be safe when you drink. Don't get behind the wheel of a vehicle if you have had ANY alcohol to drink. One drink is too much if you have to drive home!! I would also like to add that drinking has it's limits and once a person passes that line, bad things can happen. Anger can flair, your memory can leave you and that's only the beginning. People can get hurt and that's the last thing someone wants to think about when they're sobering up and realize what happened when they was under the influence of too much alcohol.
Please Drink Responsibly!
Next month is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and I will be talking more about this subject.
