I think fresh ingredients are the key to a delicious margarita. I honestly had never dabbled in the mixology world before, but found this skinny margarita recipe online and had to give it a shot. So we pulled out the juicer and made a batch of fresh lime and orange juice. The recipe called for 2 ounces (1/4 cup) of tequila, but I made sure to add more to make for an extra fun night. :)
Viva la Mehico!! What better way to celebrate a birthday than in the jungles of Mainland Mexico. It was Vicky's birthday a few weeks back, so we met up with her and some friends for a week in a beautiful beach house located right on a point break overlooking a river mouth. We surfed, hiked, ate, drank and relaxed. The town we stayed in, Playa Platanitos, was pretty far off the beaten path. It turned out we were the only gringos in the area...which was totally fine by us. On a few occasions, we walked over to the "main part of town" just a bit further down the beach and enjoyed some amazing ceviche, great mariachi music, and played on the beach with the cutest little local kids.. who all couldn't stop posing for the camera.
