Chad and I have had a couple of weeks worthy of a telenovela. Think fathers in hospitals (yes, plural), and a flood inside our high-rise, complete with the plumber from hell.
We finally reached the end point of all these shenanigans last night, and being the introverts that we are, Chad and I decided to celebrate with a TV dinner at home and some drinks.
I wasn’t in the mood for wine, so I had (gasp!) water, promising myself to make a cocktail after.
After seeing (and getting inspired by) Practical Magic earlier in the day (and taking a mental inventory of our pantry and bar), I decided to make some frozen margaritas.
We had tons of lemons in the ref, and I really wanted to make something out of the proverbial life’s lemons.
- 8 ice cubes
- 4 sachets of stevia (I don’t like sugar), diluted in the juice of…
- 2 lemons
- A dash of (bottled) lime juice (we didn’t have fresh ones last night)
- ½ cup of tequila (gold)
I put all ingredients in a blender, blended, and serve in a margarita glass (optional: rim the glass with salt, if you don’t feel as lazy as I did last night).
It turned out pretty well. Purists would prefer using simple sugar, and I’m all for that.
What do you do when life gives you lemons? Cheers!
