Weekly Boozer: Blue Lagoon Margaritas

In Uncategorized, Weekly Boozer on May 7, 2011 at 10:18 pm

It’s that time again. This week it was gladly received.  I have been drinking mostly beer and these delightful and stout margaritas were a delightful reprieve.  Really this should have been a Cinco de Mayo post, but Thursday I was drinking Shiner and grilling hot dogs. That’s how we roll. Today: Drinking… packing… some more drinking… some more drinking whilst avoiding packing. Lol. Some exaggerating.  There has mostly been errand running, packing and miscellaneous shopping, but these were in the mix somewhere.

Here is how to make your own:

Blue Lagoon Margaritas

Fancy paper umbrellas
… or orange, lime, etc for garnish
1 Tbsp coarse sugar (or salt… I am a salt rim kinda gal)
1/2 cup Sprite, chilled
1/2 cup Tequila
1/3 frozen limeade concentrate, partially thawed 
1/2 cup Blue Curacao
2 ounces pineapple juice
2 cups ice cubes
 

Directions: Sprinkle sugar or salt… or mix onto plate; using water or citrus slice, rub the rim of glasses and then press into sugar/salt to rim glass. Combine remaining ingredients in blender, cover and process. Pour slushy blue goodness into prepared glasses. Enjoy.

 

Simple. Sweet. Oh so slightly tart. Tequila kick. Margaritas. Though I have to say not too fond of the name. Blue Lagoon… can’t help but think of creatures instead of pools of blue water.  They are a lovely blue and that thought quickly faded with each sip. Also I like saying Curacao. It reminds me of something Beavis & Butthead would say, over and over. I laugh and drink more, people stare and life is normal. Here is hoping your weekend is normal and Happy Mother’s Day to all (those with four legged children too! 😉 )! EO
