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 hungry-girl.com. 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.
