Uno, Dos, Tres, Y Margarita!

So far we've had a pretty varied week: Monday was President's Day, Tuesday was National Pancake Day, yesterday was Ash Wednesday, and the day you've all been waiting for is finally here: today, Thursday February 22, is National Margarita Day!!!! I know both my mom and geeksugar (big time margarita drinkers) will be ecstatically celebrating this afternoon once happy hour arrives. Since it's almost the weekend, I say we follow their lead and stir/blend ourselves up some good old margs! You can make the classic
Ultimate Margarita

or a variation such as a
Blood Orange Margarita

, raspberry margarita, and never to be overlooked, for non-drinkers or pregnant gals,
Mild-Eyed Margaritas

. For the raspberry recipe,

Raspberry Margarita
From AZ Central

2 ounces tequila
1 ounce Triple Sec
2 ounces raspberry puree (using fresh or frozen raspberries puree in a processor and push through a fine mesh sieve)
4 ounces homemade margarita mix (2 parts fresh lime juice, 1 part fresh lemon juice, sugar to taste)

  1. Mix all ingredients with ice in a blender until smooth.
  2. Alternately stir all of the ingredients in a glass and pour into glass filled with ice.
  3. Serve both the blended and the on the rocks versions in a margarita glass.

Serves 1.

MARGARITAS! my absolute FAVORITE. i had one for fat tuesday and boy, did it knock me over. strawberry ones are amazing. margaritas can be high in calories, so try one of the recipes from one calls for 6 oz. of diet lemon-lime soda (like sierra mist), some of that crystal light lemonade powder and a shot and a half of tequila...with ice, of course. comes to be around 105 calories (about 5-10 without tequila), and i've read margaritas tend to be around 300-500 calories.
