In Honour of My Back

I was going to type in the entire holiday menu this weekend... however I really can't sit at the computer for any length of time, so I'll give you one of the drink recipes my MIL has demanded that I make over the holidays.

Yes, it's a liquid pain killer known as booze! Margaritas to be specific. Now, I've yet to find any Mexican restaurant down here that can make good margaritas (or good mexican food for that matter). One place made theirs with LEMON juice instead of lime juice --blech!

Here's my Margarita recipe:

What you need:
1 bottle of tequila
1 bottle of triple sec (white curacao)
lime juice
some ice cubes

What you do:
Mix tequila and triple sec half and half in a jug; add some lime juice till it's a very light green (you won't need much, 1/4 to 1/2 cup if you're doing the entire bottles all at once).
Salt the rim of a glass --wet the rim then swirl the rim of the overturned glass in a saucer of salt till you have the amount of salt you want.
Put a few ice cubes in the glass (AFTER you've turned the glass right side up), and then pour in the margarita mix to the top.

Drink up and be merry :)

Oh yea, a booze label. Yes, margaritas in Australia can be oh so disappointing. Nothing like Lalo's back home:( If you've ever been to Chicago or plan to go, they have the best margaritas on the planet.
