Having this tequila in any cocktail will definitely

It’s addictive!

¾ ounce simple syrup
1 ounce Ginger ale

In a pint glass, muddle celery and cilantro, then add all spirits & mixers.
Shake vigorously for six seconds, add ginger ale.
Strain over fresh ice in Collins glass,
Garnish with celery stalk.
