Tomorrow’s Cinco de Mayo! It totally snuck up on me. And I know what you’re thinking.
How did I let the drinking holiday sneak up on me?
I am ashamed of myself.
The important thing was that I did remember. Yesterday at the grocery store as I was walking past all the fruit nectars at the grocery store.
Also, I was at H-E-B before the samples were out and shopping without tiny cups of wine was not much fun.
Next week, we go after noon!
Anyway, my husband took the boys to see the new Avengers movie yesterday afternoon and left me alone to make and consume ALL THE MARGARITAS.
I saw a mango margarita recipe recently that called for the mango nectar (in cans – usually in the Mexican food aisle) instead of fresh mango which is genius because A) mango is annoying to cut and B) if I buy the already cut mango, I’m eating it before it makes it into a margarita.
So this version calls for that nectar, fresh lime juice, tequila, you know, the usual suspects. They were really, really, really good and went perfect with a Sunday afternoon Married at First Sight marathon. #obsessed
What are your Cinco de Mayo plans? I need ideas!
Make sure you follow me around the internet!
- 1/2 lime cut in half
- 4 ounces tequila
- 1 ounce orange liqueur
- juice of 1 lime
- 2/3 cup mango nectar
Run the cut limes around rim of 2 margarita glasses. Dip in salt.
In a shaker, combine tequila, orange liqueur, lime juice, and mango nectar. Add about a cup of ice and shake until cold. Strain into the 2 glasses.
