Spring is here in the Old Pueblo, bringing lots of sunshine, chirping birds, butterflies and blooming flowers (anyone else picturing Bambi right about now?). Maybe I am getting a little carried away, but it’s a fact that our minds and bodies react positively with this kind of weather.
Many people choose to live in Tucson because of the climate; so why not take advantage of it? You don’t need to travel to a resort of take a vacation when you already have it all in the comfort of your own home. Your home can be your oasis when you landscape your outdoor living spaces with the right design and installation plan. Relax on your custom patio, enjoy a meal under the stars with your outdoor kitchen, watch awakening wildlife in your butterfly or hummingbird garden, relish the cool evenings around your outdoor fireplace…excuse me while I daydream away!
- Living right in Tucson!

2 ounces tequila
1 tablespoon kosher salt
4 limes, divided
1/2 small orange
2 tablespoons light agave nectar
3 – 4 ice cubes
Pour 1/2-ounce of the tequila into a small saucer. Spread the kosher salt in a separate small saucer. Dip the rim of a wide rimmed glass into the tequila. Lift out of the tequila and hold upside down for 10 seconds to allow for slight evaporation. Next, dip the glass into the salt to coat the rim. Set aside.
Halve 2 of the limes, cut a thin slice for garnish from 1, and set aside. Juice the halved limes into the bottom of a cocktail shaker. Cut the remaining 2 limes and the orange into quarters and add them to the juice in the shaker. Add the agave nectar to and muddle for about 2 minutes. Strain the juice mixture through a cocktail strainer into the top of the shaker and discard the solids.
Return the juice to the bottom of the shaker, add the remaining 1 1/2 ounces of tequila. Add the ice to the shaker, cover and shake for 30 seconds. Strain the mixture through a cocktail strainer into the prepared glass, garnish with reserved lime slice, and serve immediately.
Drink-up and enjoy!
