Pomegranate Margaritas

Pomegranate Margaritas

You recovered from that turkey & football coma yet? My goodness, that was glorious. And gloriously painful. And if we’re talking about the Texans & Cowboys games, just flat-out glorious. I wasn’t disowned for healthifying the broccoli & rice casserole. My dad was well enough to be up and about for the day. My cousin [...]

Orange Margarita

Orange Margarita

An orange margarita. A Mimosarita? Either way, it’s what happens when you run short on limes and your toddler’s last molar has sucked enough of your will to live to make running to the grocery store seem like being asked to hurdle the Grand Canyon. In a pencil skirt. But we haven’t been overly dramatic [...]

The Skinny Margarita

Skinnier Margarita

It’s Friday! And we’re feeling even more celebratory than usual because this morning I got dressed and then immediately took my jeans off. Without unbuttoning them. Over the last few months, I’ve been “running,” which is code for “mostly walking between weeks-long hamstring problems” and keeping an eye on calories in vs calories out. Such [...]

The Blue Margarita

Peach Margaritas

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

Cantaloupe Margaritas

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! [...]

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 Margaritas

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 [...]
