salud! {happy cinco de mayo}

Sure. It's Monday. But hey, at least Cinco de Mayo gives us a little excuse to sneak out early, kick our feet up and extend the weekend just a bit longer! While margaritas are the obvious drink of choice today, I love this simple twist I stole from my guy's dad that just requires a splash of Grand Marnier. We opted to give it a spin this weekend and spent a leisurely afternoon sunning ourselves out on the patio. Summertime siestas truly are a godsend, no?

Cadillac Margarita 
1 1/2 oz. tequila 
1 oz. Grand Marnier 
1/4 oz. agave nectar
3/4 oz. fresh squeezed lime juice
an extra lime or two for garnish
salt for rim

Add tequila, agave nectar, some ice and lime juice (we opted to squeeze ours) and shake well. Bonus points for shaking to the beat of a little fiesta music. Take a chilled glass and run a lime wedge along the lip. Dip the glass into some salt (either in a bowl or on a plate) and spin until desired coverage. Add ice cubes and strain drink mixture into glass. Finally, swirl in Grand Marnier on top, throw on your lime wedge for garnish and bottoms up!

  4. Cadillac Margarita is very yummy. I only had "sour" mix, but it was fine. I like it better than using the Cuervo margarita mix that comes already prepared. Myrtle beach condos for sale
