Postcards from Margarita Tour 2010...
We are off to a promising start. Even our Budweiser loving sister-in-law is talked out of her can and into the liquor store where we begin our experiment with high-grade tequila.
We set a bad example for our niece and ruin any prospects of ever making a run for the Hernando County School Board, but we are making progress on our recipe. The verdict on high-grade tequila, however, is not so much.
This week's secret ingredient is Cointreau. This week's actual secret is locked away under a thatched roof in a top secret location in my brother's backyard. As my wise, Budweiser drinking sister-in-law explains to the middle schooler: What happens in the tiki hut stays in the tiki hut. At least until I am able to
edit post the pictures.
Having not yet reached our capacity for sun and lime drinks we are taking our research further south tomorrow, where, it is said, the air smells like Key limes and coconut.
CORRECTION: My sister-in-law's beverage of choice is Bud Light, which is still technically Budweiser, but which we are nevertheless perfectly willing to acknowledge as an error despite the fact that for more than a decade she has consistently refused/mocked our requests for a beer glass.
