Fresh Peach Margaritas

A few weeks ago, the first Texas peaches hit our grocery store. And just in time. We were working out the logistics for a weekend trip to Fredericksburg to pick peaches. But there they were. 3.1 miles away. For only 98 cents a pound. There are times you pay for an experience and then there [...]

Cantaloupe Margaritas

So I know I’ve mentioned Cantaloupe Margaritas a couple of times before – they are one of the very few margaritas that I like frozen. I simply substitute frozen cantaloupe in this recipe and then boom! It’s suddenly the next day and I’m swearing that I’ll never drink tequila again. For the second time in [...]

Pomelo Margaritas

Pomelo Margarita

Have you ever had pomelo? They’re cantaloupe-sized citrus that make a smooth margarita. You could probably eat them, too. But I wouldn’t know Maybe you passed them over because your grocery store has them surrounded with signs that say they taste like grapefruit. Pomelo do taste a lot like grapefruit… if grapefruit were less bitter [...]

Pineapple Margarita

When we were dating, we took our first “together” trip together to Keystone, Colorado. My future husband (I was pretty certain that I had it in the bag by then) grew up skiing. Me? I grew up in Texas. In a classic – and somewhat predictable – display of grace and coordination, I ended up [...]

Frozen Mango Margaritas

Oh, hi! And happy Monday-Before-Cinco-de-Mayo! You’ve probably been able to infer… but I’m not really much of a frozen margarita girl, I’d much rather have my favorite cocktail poured over ice. But we love trying out new margarita flavors and there are just some fruits that just make a better frozen drink. Like the Mango [...]

Guava Margaritas. The Guavarita!

Guava Margaritas

In my pre-Foodie Bride days, my roommate and I shared an apartment in “No Man’s Land.” It was almost downtown, but not quite. It was also not a part of the 5 other well-known, nearby areas. But it was pouring distance from The Satellite Lounge (RIP), across the street from the original Star Pizza, and [...]

PPQ: Guanabana Margaritas

April 8, 2012
Guanabana Margaritas

It’s my week to host Project Pastry Queen! A turn that happens to coincide with the end of Lent so you know what that means. TEQUILA. TEQUILA. TEQUILA. TEQUILA. 40+ days without a margarita. There is much ground to be made up! Have you ever had guanabana? I hadn’t even heard of it before The [...]

Happy New Year!

Blackberry Margarita

We celebrated the way we always do in Texas: with a pitcher of margaritas and watching the neighbors set stuff on fire. Yeehaw. 1/3 of my household was asleep by 6:30 pm. 1/3 of my household was sick. And my third settled in with a carafe of Blackberry Margaritas, some crab & artichoke dip, a [...]
