Today we are combining two of my favorite drinks just in time for your fiesta tonight.
If you don’t know me by now one of the first things you should know is I’m obsessed with Mexican food, and second is Cinco de Mayo might be one of my favorite holidays.
But also I love the month of May. Not only do you have holidays like Cinco de Mayo and Mother’s Day but it is birthday galore in our family. Our daughter’s middle name is May named after her great grandmother’s middle name. Although her spelling was the traditional Mae, we chose it like the month since Amelia’s brother, dad, 2 granddads, great granddad, and great grandmother were all born in the month of May.
I know it sounds like I am getting off track (like usual) but spring is winding down (even though I have a spring salad coming next week). But here in the south we know it’s only a matter of time before the temperatures rise and everyone is taking pics of the temperature gauges in their car. So I am getting ready for summer with this Tequila Sunrise Margarita.
At first John was a little reluctant about me combining the two together since they are two classic cocktails. But after the approval of my other taste testers Tatum and Mallie I knew I had to perfect it right in time for Cinco de Mayo. And the girls gave it a thumbs up!
- 4 tablespoons Tequila
- 2 tablespoons Lime juice
- 1 tablespoon Triple sec
- Splash of Grand Marnier
- ⅔ cup Orange juice
- 1 tablespoon Grenadine
- If you like a salt-rimmed glass, moisten the rim of your glass with a lime wedge. Then turn the glass over and dip into a small plate of coarse salt.
- Add all ingredients to a glass and stir.*
When you can pair the right cheese with charcuterie it’s a match made in heaven. As you can tell lately it’s been shower central over here. This month I helped host 2 baby showers, a wedding shower, and even participated in a virtual baby shower. But now it’s time for a virtual wedding shower for Meriem[Read More…]
I blink and life is moving at a 100 miles a minute. Do you ever feel that way? Spring is almost halfway over. But either way farmers markets are back here in the south which makes me one happy mama. And it’s time to start our garden! I can’t believe 3 of the 12 herbs[Read More…]
Who doesn’t get excited about tossing a bunch of ingredients in a bowl with a smoky southwestern vinaigrette? When one of my coworkers asked for a vegetarian entree option a while back I remembered how few I have here. Even quite a few of my salads have meat in them. Obviously this is not a[Read More…]
It’s no secret that I love Mexican food. Okay obsessed might be more accurate. And when my friend pointed out that I didn’t even have a salsa recipe on my blog I literally put my head down…who am I? I mean I know I am the queen of cheese dip – from your typical white cheese[Read More…]
Happy Birthday!! Who’s birthday is it you might ask? Hall Nesting’s! I can’t believe I have now been blogging for 5 years. I was planning on celebrating with some kind of birthday cake like most do and some do a giveaway which I did…it’s still going on if you haven’t checked it out yet. And I[Read More…]
