Happy National Guacamole Day!

Happy Mexican Independence Day!

This next cocktail is savory. Think about a Bloody Maria, but with tomatillos instead of red tomatoes. I made a tomatillo salsa for my base. I used tequila for my liquor, and a hot pepper shrub to add some spice and complexity.

My beautiful wife made some blue corn tortilla chips, and I made my guacamole to complement the drink. Salud!
