margaritas just because

Someday's an adult beverage just sounds like the ticket.  And I have to admit that I have become much more of a homebody.  Why go out when what you make at home is better then out?

The one exception up to this point is margaritas.  I occasionally like one.  Not a big one.  Just a small one.

I pulled up google.  Did a search and research.  Pulled out my dust bottles (tells you something does it not?) and decided to give it a try.


½ lemon

½ lime

3 shots simple syrup (1 cup sugar, 1 cup water brought to a boil for one minute and cooled)

2 shots tequila

1 shot cointreau, grand marnier, or triple sec

Squeeze the lemon and lime in a cocktail shaker or large mason jar.  Plop in fruit too.

Add simple syrup.

Smash together with muddler.

Add tequila and cointreau.

Cover and shake well.

Strain over ice.

Sit and enjoy with your beloved in you most comfortable at home chair.  Pretty spetacular!
