Sip Of The Month: "Mother's Little Helper" Margarita

Sip Of The Month:

Motherhood is no easy gig, so forego the standard "Mother's Day Mimosa" and give Mom, what she truly needs... A nice stiff drink! 

All jokes aside, this cocktail is truly something special, a perfect reason to raise your glass and toast to all of the exceptional women in your life.


"MOTHER'S LITTLE HELPER" MARGARITA
Serves 4

INGREDIENTS
2 cups white tequila
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup triple sec, such as Cointreau
1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
2 tablespoons fresh ripped mint leaves
Crushed ice, for the shaker
8 fresh strawberries, hulled and finely diced

DIRECTIONS FOR MARGARITAS:
Combine the Rhubarb Syrup, tequila, lime juice, triple sec, orange juice, mint leaves and some crushed ice in a shaker. Combine in batches, if necessary. Place the strawberries in the bottom of 4 margarita glasses. Strain the margaritas over the strawberries.


DIRECTIONS FOR RHUBARB SYRUP:
Combine 1 1/2 cups water and the sugar in a medium saucepan over high heat. Cook until the sugar is dissolved. Add the rhubarb and cook until slightly softened, about 5 minutes. Remove the saucepan from the heat and steep for 1 hour. Drain the liquid into a small saucepan and cook over high heat until slightly reduced and thickened, about 5 minutes. Transfer the syrup to a bowl. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for about 1 hour.
