Sloe Tequila

There are a few things that are strange about this cocktail. One is that there's sloe gin in it. Another is that there's tequila and sloe gin used together. Then, it is a slushy blended cocktail. Finally, cucumbers?

What I liked about the drink though was how well sloe gin and tequila have a bite to them. It is fruity and herbal. And somehow cucumber slices soak their mellowing and vegetable flavor into the slush to make for an interesting scent and a chilly slurp. And hey, it is a tequila drink that's not a Margarita spin off. Made this one just to prove that it can be done.
  • 2 oz. white tequila
  • 1 oz. sloe gin
  • 1/2 oz. lime juice
  • cucumber slice
Combine tequila, sloe gin and lime juice in a blender with cracked ice. Blend on low until slushy and pour into an Old Fashioned glass. Garnish with cucumber slice.
