Trinity Restaurant in New Orleans shared another tequila recipe. They originally passed this recipe over to me in celebration of National Tequila Day. Thank you, guys! This drink, called the Placeholder, was made by the bars beverage director Adam Orzechowski. The cocktail uses Cimarrón tequila, Pamplemousse, Granny Sherry, lemon, and a La Source Cabernet Float.

Now I just need to be back in New Orleans sitting at a pool in a courtyard. I could easily be sipping on a few of these while the kids swim. What about you?
