HerraduraYou might not expect hell to freeze over during a Texas summer, but then, I bet you didn’t think Trump would be the Republican nominee. But few things are more refreshing in summer than a chilly margarita, courtesy of the kitchen at Plano’s Mi Dia from Scratch Tex-Mex restaurant. (The restaurant even boasts a “tequila tower” of more than 100 tequilas.) Here’s the recipe:

1.25 oz. green chile-infused Herradura silver tequila

1 oz. Cointreau

1/4 of a lime

1/4 of a cucumber

1/4 oz. agave nectar

2 basil leaves

Hatch pepper and salt (to rim)

Dry ice (for effect)

Making it: Muddle the cucumber, lime, basil and agave in a shaker. Add tequila and Cointreau with ice and shake vigorous. Rim a martini glass and double strain in liquid, with dry ice in the glass.
