A Margarita Monday!

I wasn’t going to do a blog post today. My day today is supposed to be filled with small house details that I’ve been neglecting as a result of my obsessive and compulsive blogging habits – checking up on bloglovin, reading new posts, finding new blogs, entering my own updates, etc… It’s becoming unhealthy, actually… At night I’m even dreaming about blogs – new entries, possible new recipes, the wonderful people that have come into my life via various blogging communities thus far. It’s ridiculous.
So yes. I wasn’t going to do a blog post today. But here I am anyway, typing away even as my book, Cormac McCarthy’s “The Road” is calling to me from my bed.. And yes, napping is considered a small house detail.
So, to make it quick – for lunch today I decided to chow down on some of my homemade guacamole with a side of whole wheat pita crisps. But it needed something. What did it need, you ask? 
Oh. It needed tequila. 
I thought to myself, why not have a margarita on Monday?? It’s my day off, it’s beautiful outside, and I’m damn well eating guacamole! Margarita, YES!

A Margarita Monday


  • 10 Limes for juice.
  • 1/2 C Limeonade
  • 5 Handfuls of Ice.
  • 6 - 8 Ounces Tequila try to get something better than Olmeca.
  • 3 Ounces Orange Flavoured Liquor.
  • 2 -3 Tsp Local Organic Honey.
  • Salt to rim Rough Sea Salt works great and isn't too over-powering.


  • Chuck all of the above into a blender except for the salt. Puree till slushy.
  • You may need to edit the amount of ice to suit the consistency you prefer. Or, omit the blender and serve over ice instead.
  • Take a slice of lime, cut a slit in the flesh, and trace the rim of a glass with it.
  • Dump your salt on a plate and gently place the limed rim in the salt.
  • Fill with "juice", garnish with a slice of lime, and drink up!Ow Ow!
  • Margarita Monday!
