a day for celebration…

Today couldn’t have been a better day… not only is it Friday and the start to a wonderful weekend, but it also happens to be ‘National Margarita Day’ [I feel like it was just recently National Margarita Day, but who cares since I sure don’t need a special day to enjoy a few!]…
So in honor of this spectacular day, what better to do than celebrate by downing a few homemade margs! That everyone, is exactly what we will all be doing tonight!
First we will start off with a traditional with fresh squeezed lime juice, another chock full of fresh raspberry that I’ll purée and then lastly one with pomegranate/blueberry.
After a quick dash to the market this morning, I picked up all the needed ingredients for our Friday night fiesta.
Good tequila is what makes a great marg, but some blue corn chips and homemade sweet/spicy pineapple salsa make you go back for more!

decisions, decisions, decisions…

On a daily basis we are confronted with decisions [sometimes difficult ones at that]… whether it be hitting the snooze button once more, what shoes to wear, what to make for dinner, as well as many others. Sometimes it’s nice to not have to make a decision, but instead have a variety of choices placed right in front of you! That’s exactly what happened tonight. Rather than having to select one cocktail from a drink menu, I was able to select a trio of little potent pleasures in a number of flavors. As if that wasn’t fantastic enough… they were all low cal too!! The trio consisted of mango, lime and pomegranate margaritas presented in a spirally tree that held everything together. Delicious and mouthwatering, while at the same time healthy and satisfying!

Finally a day devoted to the margarita!

So I found out that today was National Margarita Day… Who Knew! So in honor of this special day, I decided what better to do than guzzle down a nice, ice cold marg minus the salted rim… I opted for a tangy, and anti-oxidant filled pomegranate version. To the table arrived a vessel that could have held two normal size drinks, but instead just one for me. The flavors took me to a tropical island [well ok really the pictures of my bff’s recent vacation helped with that] and made me think that summer is right around the corner! A hint of lime, sweetness from triple sec, tang from the pomegranate juice and a vivid burst from the tequila made this drink so special. Better brush off my marg machine and start testing new recipes for weekends spent poolside…
