Raspberry Margaritas - use fresh or frozen raspberries to make these easy and delicious margaritas! Perfect summer drink!

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

It occurred to me yesterday that I didn’t make a single recipe in preparation for Mother’s Day so I’m also pitching these Raspberry Margaritas as the perfect thing to make for your mom this Sunday.

I mean, moms love margaritas, right?

At least every mom I know loves margaritas.

My mom friends really, really love margaritas.

And it’s pink! Moms definitely love pink things!

It’s a fact.

Raspberry Margaritas - use fresh or frozen raspberries to make these easy and delicious margaritas! Perfect summer drink!

Frozen margaritas are so easy because you literally just pour everything in a blender and press go.

There’s no “Do you shake or stir margaritas?” google search necessary.

There’s no fussy muddling of raspberries happening here.

Just dump everything in and blend until it reaches a good consistency.

I love drink recipes like that.

These are really refreshing and perfect for this time of year when the raspberries are looking all fat, juicy, and delicious! If you happen to end up with a not-so-sweet batch of raspberries, a tiny bit of simple syrup will help sweeten your margaritas.

Blue Margaritas - the prettiest drink for your Cinco de Mayo party!

I promised more you more margaritas!

But first, let’s talk TV. Because we haven’t done that in awhile.

Game of Thrones.

Did you watch it? I did. Kind of. It doesn’t hold my attention like it used to. People were freaking out about it and I have no idea what happened. Soooo… I’m gonna listen to a recap podcast or 14 before I decide if I’m going to resubscribe to HBO for the rest of the season.

What’d you think? Worth the monthly fee for HBO?

Orphan Black is amazing as always. The actress that plays the clones is so incredible. I’m obsessed with her and the show.

I binge watched The Girlfriend Experience over the weekend. Also incredible. Not kid friendly at all but it was just really well done and I love a show with a strong female lead.

Umm… I haaaaate Real Housewives of Dallas. HATE HATE HATE. The worst. They do not deserve the title of Housewives.

Still love Real Housewives of NYC. Bethenny is my spirit animal.

What are you watching? What else should I be watching?! Tell me if I need to keep watching GoT! HELP ME DECIDE.

Blue Margaritas - the prettiest drink for your Cinco de Mayo party!

Now Blue Margaritas!

My fave Mexican place back in Colorado Springs (3 Margaritas on Powers!) had the best blue margaritas and I have been dying to make some ever since we moved down here.

So really, Blue Margaritas don’t taste that different from the classic but they’re so pretty! The blue comes from the curacao which tastes a lot like Triple Sec and is mostly there just for the color. Also, quite cheap at the liquor store so don’t let the 3 different types of booze scare you away from making this one.

Definitely add it to your Cinco de Mayo plans – your friends and fam will love it!

Watermelon Mint Margaritas - the most refreshing summer drink! Perfect for poolside parties, Cinco de Mayo, or just a Friday night!

I feel like I’ve been so behind on holidays this year. I didn’t post a single Mardi Gras recipe, I think I posted one for Easter, and I can’t name another holiday that’s passed to save my life.

It’s safe to say that if there were more, I definitely missed them.

But I will not miss Cinco de Mayo! We’re starting a couple weeks early so I can squeeze in all the margaritas and melted cheese I can come up with.

(I’ve also started planning for National S’mores Day. I may miss all the other holidays but you know I’ll be here for margaritas and s’mores.)

Watermelon Mint Margaritas - the most refreshing summer drink! Perfect for poolside parties, Cinco de Mayo, or just a Friday night!

I’ve been obsessed with watermelon for the last couple summers and it looks like it will be continuing this year since I couldn’t wait to share these Watermelon Mint Margaritas with you!

They’re really easy and yes, they start with fresh watermelon. No fake stuff here! You just need the watermelon and then you make a quick mint simple syrup, stir in some tequila and lime juice, and you’re done!

I bet they would be delicious next to a pool or on the beach or basically anywhere that it’s hot! And look how pretty they are!

Pineapple Blackberry Mojitos - the BEST summer cocktail recipe! Pineapple, blackberries, and mint are crushed and then mixed with rum, lime juice, and sparkling water!

It is really Monday again?

How does this keep happening to us?

Ugggghhhh.

I hope you had a relaxing and/or exciting weekend and hopefully Monday won’t be too bad to you. But just in case, I made us some Blackberry Pineapple Mojitos.

Pineapple Blackberry Mojitos - the BEST summer cocktail recipe! Pineapple, blackberries, and mint are crushed and then mixed with rum, lime juice, and sparkling water!

These are really, really easy to make. You just use the handle of a wooden spoon to mash a bunch of blackberries, pineapple, and mint together and then dump in some rum, lime juice, and sparkling water. Throw some ice in and top it with a bunch of mint so it looks fancy. Done.

It’s going to become your official summer drink!

Skinny Coconut Mojito - the ultimate summer drink recipe! Coconut water, rum, limes, and mint! This is low calorie and so delicious!

Happy new weeks, guys!

I hope your weekend was great. The boys and I rode over to Temple for the food truck festival and had an absolute blast. They tried so many things they wouldn’t usually try – I mean, who knew they liked kimchi fries?! And the best part is that I found so many food trucks that I’ll now be stalking on Instagram.

We also saw bluebonnets on the way home! This is the best time of year in Texas (I say this as if I haven’t only lived here 11 months) and I cannot even wait for all the pretty flowers to take over.

And the weather? Amazing! So warm, so spring-like. I’m loving life right now.

Also amazing?

Skinny Coconut Mojitos!

These are so delicious, low calories, and so simple! They are just mint and limes muddled together and then a tiny bit of simple syrup, white rum, and coconut water! Serve is over low of ice for the perfect summer drink!

(Because I always gets asked: the cute square ice cubes are from these trays.)
