Oregano Infused Paloma

Hello Tequila!!! Steve and I are emptying our liquor cabinet…we don’t want any booze to go to waste….that would just be alcohol abuse. We’re currently working on making a bottle of Quervo 1800 and a GIANT bottle of Sauza disappear….and it’s been slow going. Our herb garden is still going strong….even though it’s January, so I figured why not pretend it’s summer and whip up a boozy summer cocktail.
