I teamed up with my friends at Whole Foods Market NYC to bring you The Crunchy Radish Cinco Series, a healthier take on a festive holiday.
Most of my friends know tequila is my drink of choice. Blanco, rocks, splash of fresh lime, maybe a little club soda...a "skinny girl" rose to fame with something kind of similar. For this Cinco de Mayo Celebration, I made a little variation on my favorite drinking theme. Muddled cucumber and fresh raspberries add a festive and bright touch to zesty lime juice, bubbly club soda, and smooth tequila. Light, refreshing, delicious. The perfect way to get your fiesta started.
Drink responsibly Cinco revelers. Cheers!
