National Margarita Day

There’s nothing like waking up on a lazy Sunday morning to find out that it’s National Margarita Day! How this glorious event almost slipped by me is unimaginable since margaritas are my go-to cocktail when I’m not certain how an establishment makes a perfectly pink pomtini. Thank you to my ever diligent husband for bringing this to my attention whether there be ulterior motives involved or he’s just looking forward to cocktail time tonight while I tune into the Oscars.  Since it’s before noon and I’m still on my first cup of girlie (hazelnut) coffee, I thought I’d search Pink Martinis and Pearls and bring up everything margaritas!

From fruity fresh margaritas to prickly pear margaritas and margarita themed cookies, it’s here and recipes and DIY treat tutorials are just a click away!  Que tengas buen dia!

Talk about gathering  round the water cooler!  🙂

Lately though, at home, I’ve been experimenting with more citrus flavors.  A half of an orange, a wedge of lemon and a lime cut up in quarters.  If there’s a… [Read More]

Pink Prickly Pear Margaritas

One thing that worked out well in Las Vegas was not making reservations for dinner.  Without them, seating was only available after 10 o’clock which left the other option – to sit at the bar.  Often times I prefer the bar view because it’s where the action is and the bartenders are usually very nice and generous with recipes and samples of exotic drinks left in the shakers.  In our room, before we ventured to the casino level for dinner,… [Read More]
