I’m not going to be able to properly celebrate Cinco de Mayo this week, what with Mr. Candy having the audacity to WORK on that holiest of party days — sacrilege! — so we are going to raise a glass in honor of it tonight instead, with a peach margarita.
I love just about ANY kind of margarita — salt, no salt, frozen, on the rocks, up, down, side-to-side — but I thought peach would be a yummy twist.
TGIF PEACH MARGARITA (OR, AS MY INNER PUN ENTHUSIAST DESPERATELY WANTS TO CALL IT, MAMARITA)
- 1 oz. Tequila (I totally forgot we had Patrón — a gift, I think? What a lovely surprise. Woo-hoo!)
- 1 oz. Peach Schnapps
- 1 oz. Sweet and Sour Mix
- 1 dash — yes, a dash! — of Grenadine
Pour the tequila, peach schnapps and sweet-n-sour mix over ice in a margarita glass. Add the DASH of grenadine, stir slightly, and pour down the hatch!
There it is: party in a glass. I believe that festive adornment is actually from one of our Mexican vacations in years past. How sanitary of me, no? Mmmmm. Ah, well, I won’t care after a few sips of this bad boy. Happy Early Cinco de Mayo, everyone!
