Too Damn Hot

It is hot, too damn hot. I am miserable.  The only chance of respite is a decent margarita.  Here is my recipe for one:

1) 3 oz of Reposito Tequila (I use 1800)

2) 1 oz of Cointreau.

3) juice from 1 lime.

4) simple syrup to taste.

Shake well, serve in a chilled, salted glass.  Toss in a lime wedge.

Now I need more limes.

  1. mmmmm or a Mojito Sir

    3 fresh mint sprigs
    2 tsp sugar
    3 tbsp fresh lime juice
    1 1/2 oz light rum
    club soda

    In a tall thin glass, crush part of the mint with a fork to coat the inside. Add the sugar and lime juice and stir thoroughly. Top with ice. Add rum and mix. Top off with *chilled* club soda (or seltzer). Add a lime slice and the remaining mint, and serve.

  2. I suggest using lemon mint in the mojito. . . it’s fabulous 😀 OH, and we found course sugar (can’t think of the specific kind, it’s downstairs and I’m lazy), is better then granulated sugar. . . next time I’m in the kitchen I’ll look, we got it at the local hippie shop (ie, natural food/stuff store) 😀

    As a matter of fact, I’m giving one each of my spearmint, lemon mint, and aloe plants to one of my best friends for her birthday. She makes killer mojitos, and she gets sunburns 😉

    Also. . . mints would do very VERY well along the back porch/near the summerkitchen. Lemon mint, chocolate mint. Oh, and a few Rosemary and mosquito plants (they repel mosquitoes, and hell, rosemary is the best herb EVER)

  3. OH! And honestly, I cannot WAIT to go toast out in the back yard. I mean TOAST. I’d live in a dry sauna if I could 😛
