I hope everyone enjoys eating way too many chips and salsa tonight, and one, two or more margaritas! Yum! I mean, Cinco de Mayo IS a day to celebrate, right? Instead of going with the typical margarita recipe for my Thirsty Thursday, I thought I’d go with a fun twist, Tequila Thyme Lemonade. I found it on North River Outfitter‘s facebook page this morning, and it sounds super refreshing!
• 3 thyme sprigs
• 1 t sugar
• 2 lemon wedges
• 3 oz. silver tequila
• 1 oz. cold water
• 2 t freshly lemon juice
Muddle the three thyme sprigs with the sugar and two lemon wedges in a glass. Add tequila, cold water, and ice. Taste. Warning: It’s strong! Add lemon to balance taste, as you like it. Makes one drink.
Looking for a margarita, on a diet…
Try Bethenny’s SkinnyGirl Margarita. Instead of running out to the liquor store to buy her margarita line, you can make the exact drink in the privacy of your own home. Click here for an old post with her recipe. P.S. Have any of you been watching Bethenny Ever After? I’m so sad the season finale is on Monday night. Love that show! She is hilarious, and so is her husband, Jason.
For a non-alcoholic margarita…try this recipe, from ehow.
- 2 oz. lemon-lime soda
- 3 oz. sweet and sour mix
- 1 tsp. coarse salt
- Lime wedge
- Pour the coarse salt onto a plate or saucer.
- Moisten the rim of a margarita glass with the lime wedge. Dip the glass into the salt until it coats the rim.
- Fill a margarita glass with ice and pour in the lemon-lime soda, sweet and sour mix and lime juice.
- Garnish with the lime.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t come out until the end of the month!
Cheers to patiently waiting…oh, and maybe the shoes, as well. 🙂
Yesterday’s location was the Quail Hollow Championship at Quail Hollow Country Club, here in Charlotte.
