I will be heading out to a local Mexican restaurant with Jed, my bestie and her hubs tonight. It is a belated birthday celebration for Jed with them, since they were unable to make his actual birthday celebration. My mouth is already watering thinking about delicious Mexican goodies, and of course, margaritas! Hence today's reflection of the day... I'll certainly be enhancing my curves tonight with all that merry-making! Haha!
In honor of the day, mix up a few of these classic margarias, courtesy of Real Simple.
- 3/4 cup tequila
- 1/2 cup fresh lime juice (from 4-6 limes)
- 1/2 cup Triple Sec or Cointreau
- 1 lime, sliced
- kosher salt
- In a medium pitcher, combine the tequila, lime juice, Triple Sec/Cointreau and 1/2 cup water (or try ice in a blender for the frozen variety!)
- Rub the rims of four glasses with a lime slice and dip in the kosher salt. Serve the margaritas in the prepared glasses over ice and garnish with the lime slices.
