 Ingredients List

  • 5 Limes, halved
  • 5 Lemons, halved
  • 1 Orange, halved
  • 1 c Sugar
  • 1 Fifth tequila
  • Crushed ice


I found out about yucca while on a camping trip. I don't know where the
name came from. Here's the recipe:

Squeeze the juice from the fruit into a large jar like the type you make
sun tea in. Toss in the peels. Add the sugar, and fill with crushed ice.
Add the whole fifth of tequila, put the lid on and shake well.

While sitting around the campfire one evening some friends introduced us to
yucca. When the jar gets passed to you, you give it a shake, twist off the
lid and have a gulp. There is a ritual that goes with it. If you don't
shake it first you loose a turn. If you take too small of a drink, you must
drink more until everyone is satisfied that you didn't cheat yourself. If
you take too big of a drink, you have to buy the tequila for the yucca jar
for the next evenings campfire. Kinda like the dumb things we did in
college, but sitting around the campfire kinda brings out a different
person than when you're at home and have to be responsible. Gives you a
chance to loosen up. And it tastes great!
