Monday's Meal- It's Cinco de Mayo

In celebration of Cinco de Mayo, I descided it might be more appropriate to provide a potent potable in lieu of an actual meal.

I am in no way suggesting that this is all you consume today....

Chips, salsa, and a little guacomole make nice side dishes.

The Best Margarita Ever:


1 1/2 cup Good Tequila (Cuervo Gold, 1800, etc. are all fine)
1/2 cup Grand Marnier
1/3 bottle of beer (Coors, Bud, Miller High Life--- shout out to JD and the ghetto beer)
1 can frozen lemonade from concentrate (try to get one that has little or no pulp); if it is too sour

just add some sugar
1 substantial squirt from a real lemon (or, 1 Tbsp of lemon juice)
1 substantial squirt from a real lime (or, 1 Tbsp of lime juice)


1) Fill the blender with half ice, half water to the top (this creates a very chilled margarita, instead of a frozen one)

2) Throw in all the ingredients and blend until the ice is shredded...a couple of good pulses.

3) Sugar to taste and pour in margarita, rocks, or martini glasses with no additional ice added
