Margarita Madness!!

AKA Alice dropped by my site yesterday, thanks so much, don't be a stranger!

This morning, bright and early, I flip over to see what she has been up to and wham, there is a fabulous Margarita recipe that is just crying out to me.

No, I didn't make one for breakfast, but be sure this being our Civic Holiday long weekend coming up and me with a new blender....well, I can hear it whirling now!!!

Here's the recipe

For the MIX;

1 cup fresh lemon juice

1 cup fresh lime juice

1 cup simple syrup (1/2 c sugar and 1/2 c water...on low heat until
sugar dissolves into water)

dash or two of salt


1 c mix

1 c really good tequila (AKA Alice uses Patron) I use Sauza, because that's what's in the cupboard.

1/2 c really good triple-sec or Cointreau

Shake w/ice (AKA uses a martini shaker) and pour over ice

Garnish with a lime wedge.

Back to reality, no holiday today, so I'd better hustle my butt off to work.

Life's fun if you don't weaken!

It's a real marg!!!

To get the most juice out of your limes make sure they are room temp or warm them in water. Otherwise a cup of lime juice will last a week. ;)

We'll be on the road to NL. (Are you sick of me going on about this?)

Patron tequila is like the smoooooooothest thing you'll ever drink. Your blogging friends have great taste!

I'm still waiting to try the beer margarita thing -

10:45 AM - one hazelnut decaf douible milk coffee and a breakfast sandwiched downed and I am craving cocktails! At work!

Oh, it is only 9:30, but now I want a margarita! I have Jose Cuervo and Suaza in the cupboard, but you are going to mix it anyway, so oh well!

I will soooooo be making another batch on Monday in honor of your Civic Holiday! I am so honored to help Canada celebrate in style!

PS...I really do recommend the Patron. Good tequila = good margs

Aye Carumba - you make your margarita's STRONG.

I use 1 part tequila, a little triple-sec, and 3 parts mix.
