Does all this sewing have you thirsty? If so, I have just the thing — a delicious Strawberry Margarita, compliments of The Foodie Bride blog. If you are a margarita lover, you should visit her site for more mouth-watering recipes to satisfy your craving and find your perfect libation for Cinco de Mayo. I am especially loving the traditional lime margarita.
More sewing to come. I am currently working on a muslin for a casual button down shirt for my husband. Photos soon when I have something substantial to show. I also plan to *finally* finish my Gertie shirtwaist dress this weekend. Plus I have ideas for several quick and breezy summer dresses. We will see how all that turns out. What’s on your sewing table or in your kitchen right now?
- Salt or sugar for rimming glasses (optional)
- 2 oz tequila
- 1 oz orange liqueur (like Cointreau)
- 3 oz fresh orange juice (from about 2 navel oranges)
- 4 oz strawberry puree*
- 4 oz homemade margarita mix
If desired, rim glass with water or lime juice then salt or sugar (or mixture). Combine liquid ingredients in the glass and stir well. Add ice and serve.
*The strawberry puree is made by tossing 1 teaspoon of sugar with 1.5 pints chopped strawberries and then pureed after letting it sit at room temp for a while. You can adjust accordingly if you don’t have a use for that much puree.
