It’s been fun and busy few days this week. We had family visiting us and that’s why it’s been a little quiet. My husband’s aunt and uncle came to visit the FL family from New Mexico, so I decided to unplug for a few days and just spend time with the family. It’s always so nice to just turn off the computer and not worry about work for a couple of days.
This delicious margarita was actually inspired by my aunt’s visit. She loves margaritas and I planned on making some for us while she was here. I actually planned a few of their favorites originally, until I realized that almost all the food I was planning was Mexican inspired. Hubs and I decided it was a bad idea since they are from New Mexico and they eat so much of it all the time. I immediately changed my dinner plans to something completely different, I went with Italian and seafood. You can’t visit Florida without gorging on fresh seafood and you can’t visit my house without tasting some Italian food. I know it’s an odd concept because I’m Russian, but I do make darn good Italian food.
I did get a chance to make some Guacamole for my aunt and uncle because I really wanted their opinion on my guac. Them being New Mexico natives is about as close as I can get to comparing my guacamole recipe to the “real deal” they are used to. I was super excited that they loved it and didn’t leave a drop behind. Yay, me!
Well, as I mentioned above, this margarita was inspired by my aunt but I was really sad that she didn’t even get a chance to try it. You see, I over-planned on food and drinks a bit. In my head, three days seemed a little longer that it actually turned out to be. When you factor in all the sight-seeing and touristy stuff packed into three days, there is not much time spent at home. So when they left for the airport, I realized that I didn’t get a chance to make her one of my margaritas. Although, a margarita was still sounding very good so I made one anyway…and I thoroughly enjoyed it! You just can’t beat sitting back and enjoying a nice margarita after cleaning the whole house.
Sunset Margarita (Mango Pineapple Margarita)
- 1 large ripe mango, skin and pit removed
- 3 oz pineapple juice
- 1/2 oz lime syrup
- 3 1/2 oz silver tequila
- 1 Tbsp grenadine
- About 1 1/2 cups of ice
- Preparation here is completely fitting to the "ease and relaxation" theme of the drink.
- Just put all your ingredients, except for grenadine, into a blender. Pulse until smooth and divide between two glasses. (Or a nice big glass all for yourself.)
- Slowly pour grenadine along the inside edge of the glass. Some grenadine will sink and some will float.
