Dear Diary,

Happy St. Patrick’s Day…! I rarely drink on Mondays, but with my wedding three weeks away, making my drink Irish seems like a good idea. Usually it’s my fiancé’s mood swings that send me off the edge, but today it’s my family. My mom literally asked me, if there was an aisle and if my dad was walking me down it. To her credit, she lives 2,000 miles away, and distance makes it hard to contribute to the planning process. But, it took all my strength not to respond, “I think so… does your  invitation say wedding?”

It’s been a really hard not having my mother more involved. She has such great taste when it comes to decorating spaces, my parent’s home is both warm and elegant. Often I found myself second guessing my wedding picks without her approval. Three weeks left and I’m really starting to freak about getting this all together in time. I guess it’s part of growing up and getting married, though…you have to trust yourself and your decisions.

One decision, I can make without hesitation, is how to pour tequila. This is something, I’ll never struggle with. So, today to celebrate my heritage and forget my worries I’m making an “SFG Irish-Rita” We actually tested this cocktail during my bachelorette party and it went over really well! At least from what I can remember!

Look how at ease I am and that’s only 1 cocktail deep! Wedding stress…what wedding stress?!

Here’s what you need:

* 2 ounces Casamigos Blanco tequila

* 1 ounce fresh pressed cucumber juice

* 1/4 ounce fresh pressed jalapeno juice

* 1 ounce fresh lime juice

* 1/2 ounce agave nectar

* cilantro and lime wedges for decoration

Pour the Casamigos Blanco into a shaker filled with ice. Next, add the lime, cucumber juice, agave and jalapeño juice. Shake and serve over ice. If you don’t have a juicer, might I suggest you get one. It changed my life… and made this drink amazing!
