Ever since I hurt my foot, my hips and knees have hurt more.  Especially on the left side.  I know it is because I am not walking correctly.  My figure skating coach (who is much more than that) says drink more, especially when I am trouble with something like a sit camel.  It is an old time move that nobody does anymore that has high levels of difficulty.

He knows I like margaritas and came across this recipe.  It combines the my like of margaritas and ginger.  It also helps that "drink more" statement.  I made my life a bit easier then the original recipe in the Houston Chronicle.  I went with what was in the house.

Which is a good thing.  Especially with a complete fail making a dress (I think the fabric is really wrong) and my foot swollen and hips hurting during my lesson.

ginger margarita

1 1/2 ounces tequila

1/2 ounce fresh lime juice

1/2 ounce Cointreau

1/4 ounce to 1 ounce (or taste) ginger simple syrup


Sparkling wine, I used Cinzano moscato asti (it was what was in house)

Mix everything together but the wine. Put ice in a ten ounce cup.  Pour the margarita mixture over it.  Top with sparkling wine.  Stir.  Taste if there is enough ginger for you and adjust.

Very yummy.

We are off for the next week and half doing business and having family celebrations.  I probably will not be able to blog until we get back.  It is that bit of having no internet or cell phone access.  Hopefully, I will come back with much inspiration!
