Blackberry Fig Fizzy Margarita

  • Base Spirit Tequila
  • Preparation Mixed
  • Flavor Fruity
  • Served On the Rocks

Mix up your summer margarita with this delicious, effervescent potion made with freshly picked blackberries from the garden (or your local farmer’s market) and soft ripe figs. This recipe emphasizes the culinarY elements over a straight vehicle for agave. A healthy dose of club soda also keeps the ABV low so you can indulge in a few of these without getting too tipsy.

Hendrick’s Rolls Out Victorian Penny Farthing (Big Wheel) Exercise Bike

(For readers who are not up-to-date on cycling history, the penny farthing was an early cycle popular in 1870’s; you might recognize them as those old school cycles with one giant wheel and one small one.) The Hendrick’s version is intended to be a throwback, low-tech response to the likes of the Peloton.
