Wednesdays are my favorite. Mostly because I’ve become quite the procrastinator and wait until then to do my Thirsty Thursday post. Since I have no choice but to make and photograph the drink when the light is best, I get to have a cocktail in the middle of the day. And by midweek? I need it.

But these days Wednesday is also my favorite because it’s HONEY BOO BOO day. Don’t tell me you don’t love. I won’t believe you. I die a little every time I see the sketti episode or the bingo face episode.

So this week Nic asked me what I wanted to do for our drink theme and I said something with tequila so I don’t have to go to the liquor store. Because my husband is out in the field and the liquor store with 3 boys is kind of a nightmare. I don’t really know any drinks with tequila besides margaritas so… here we are. This one is made with guanabana nectar which is supposed to taste kind of like a strawberry, pineapple, citrus fruit, coconut, and banana all at once. I only got the coconut out of it but hey, I’ll never complain about a coconut drink. It was delicious!

Go visit Nicole to see her Bloody Maria. I love any drink that you can have at breakfast and not have your fellow diners judge you for it!
