Now that's a keeper!

Most of us are so caught up in life that we forget to live it.

Beats hanging a bag of saline solution. Makes its own cold-pack for the cooler too.

RE: A margarita sure sounds nice about right now.
I like tequila, but cannot stand the extraordinary sweetness that most margaritas have when purchased out at most eating establishments, so here is my recipe that was dubbed by a close friend as a "Jimmy Jimbo margarita".

Ingredients:
Gold Tequila (Sauza Conmemorativo)
Minutemaid Lime juice concentrate made per instructions on the can
Grand Marnier

Fill a cylindrical clear glass with ice cubes
Pour gold tequila until the glass is 40% full (after trying many brands of tequila, my favorite is Suaza Conmemorativo)
Pour lime juice until the glass is 80% full
Top off with about 10% of Grand Marnier
Shake about 15 times and you have a very smooth, potent cocktail.


Gold tequila seems to smooth out the limeaid much more so that silver tequilas.
Triple sec, or Cointreau can be used in place of Grand Marnier, but I don't think that they are near as good.


Please give this recipe a try, I think that you will like it!

Brother and family are in town and it is hotter than Hades outside. So I thought I would mix up a nice batch of margaritas. Mmmmm....those are sure tasty.

I use the Minute Maid concentrate as well -- it's great stuff for margaritas.

Anyone ever make one substituting stewed/pureed/strained and barely sweetened rhubarb for the lime? Would be pretty and tasty, I bet....

While at this year's -haha RN made some margaritas using Dee's recipe. They were delicious and deadly, because if you weren't careful consuming more than 1 could be the old saying " 1 tequila, 2 tequila, 3 tequila, floor!". We all had just one and Mmmmmm!

Something called Pitu /40 proof cachaca.
This is my first bottle of the product, so I have no reference as to how good, bad, smooth or horrific that it may be compared to other brands.
I smooshed (technical term) half a lime, and added a couple of teaspoons of raw sugar with a rather large quaff of the above Brazilian hooch. Now granted, it may have been a bit heavy on the hooch side, but good enough, nonetheless to flood my system with feel-good endorphins. Anything to take my mind off of the fact that, at the moment, Oz feels like Mercury... the planet - not the metal.
