Margarita Monday: Hawaiian Style!

0

I wasn’t actually planning on Margarita Monday to be a regular thing, but I figured what the heck–who doesn’t like margaritas?!?!?  Btw, if you’d like a picture of your tasty margarita to appear here for Margarita Mondays, please tweet it to me @epicurioustexan or send me a message on FB!

I know, I know…it’s been awhile since I’ve posted for Margarita Monday and honestly, I didn’t think I’d have a margarita post whilst posting about Hawaii.  But in looking through all the pictures, I realized that we did have margaritas while we were there.  And by “we,” I mean Christi and Tracy–but I had a tasty sip, or perhaps two…or maybe four.  I mean how could you not when pineapple margaritas are on the menu?!?

These are from the Goofy Cafe & Dine in Honolulu, where we stopped to indulge in a bit of poke, bibimbap, and corn penne before we departed for the Big Island.  Goofy doesn’t have an extensive menu, but everything was fresh, delicious, and locally sourced!

Aloha!

Sunday Comics: Beach Body

4

I know I have been talking quite a bit about beaches and guess what?!?!?  I have found the perfect way to get EVERYONE–that’s right, EVERYONE–a beach body this summer!

And the best part is that it doesn’t require a crazy ass diet that turns you into a raging Cookie Monster by the end of day 1 or consuming an entire grove of grapefruit until it’s permanently on your “never eat again list” or a need to run 937 miles on the treadmill everyday.  

Because I think we can all agree that running 937 miles a day really cuts into cheese eating and wine/beer/margarita drinking time.

It’s amazingly genius because it’s so simple–you don’t need any fancy, over-priced equipment you’re going to stop using after 4 days.  You can start today–and substitutions like “pool” or “lake” instead of “beach” are perfectly a-okay!  You just need sunscreen and some tasty beverages to stay hydrated.  A swimsuit and a towel, if you want to get in the water, are also good.  And if you want to be really fancy you can bring snacks and a big umbrella.

Happy Summer-ing!

Aloha!

Margarita Monday, Part Cuatro…Again

I know I shared this margarita before on a certain [ahem, birth-] day a few months ago, but I thought it was fitting to share again, since this delicious margarita was a tasty part of Birthday Trip #2! Salute!

In honor of today’s Big Birthday: Not 40, Just Fabulous, I thought it appropriate to honor this Margarita Monday with my cranberry margarita from Chevy’s during my Birthday Trip #2 (because when you’re turning Not 40, Just Fabulous, you get multiple birthday trips!).

Margarita Monday, Part Siete

Yes, that is a jalapeño floating in that there margarita.  It is, in fact, a jalapeño margarita.  I will confess that it wasn’t MY jalapeño margarita, rather it belonged to TK.  I had, if you will remember the original Margarita Monday, the blood orange margarita.  While the jalapeño margarita was definitely a novelty and very tasty, personally I preferred the blood orange.

We were at Antojito’s.  It’s the restaurant where we decided to eat after departing Universal Studios.

Naturally, we had the table side guacamole because why wouldn’t you?  It’s amazing and goes well with margaritas.  The best part of getting table side guacamole with friends from home is that we can order it spicy, unlike here where I have to settle for medium and watch my NYC friends whimpily whine about how “hot” it is.  My reply to them is always:  oh shush & have another margarita!

mmmmm….a another margarita sounds like a great plan!  Salud!

I recently went to DC & VA for our annual Girls’ Weekend.  This year it was held in honor of James’s big birthday.  I won’t say how old she is **cough 40 cough** I will only comment that a few margaritas were consumed.

This one is a blood orange margarita from Chuy’s Restaurant in Richmond.

Happy Birthday James!!  Actually, Happy Birthday to all my February babies–oh, and also OOOOOPS–to my January babies too since you didn’t get a shout out last month!

This tasty little baby was from The Smallest Bar in Key West, which is only 72 square feet!

A Hurricane, A Margarita, and A Rum Runner (Thirsty Thursday #8)

0

In trying to find pictures for Throwback Thursday, I realized I have a lot of pictures of adult beverages (that is said with pride, by the way). As such, I’ve decided rather than share pictures of me with bad 80s hair and glasses that legitimately covered half my face, I could easily share glasses of a much tastier kind.

As many of you know, I’ve been off gallivanting all over the country to celebrate my birthday, Fabulous Not Forty! I kicked things off in Tampa, Florida, which included a weekend trip to Key West! Apparently the first thing one is to do when in Key West is stop by Fat Tuesday for a drink. Who am I to deny tradition?

Here we are with our hurricane, margarita, and rum runner! Cheers!

if you're going to have a margarita, it might as well come in a cactus stemmed glass!

Margarita Monday, Part Dos

I wasn’t actually planning on Margarita Monday to be a thing, but last week’s post was rather popular.  I figured what the heck, let’s try this again.  NOTE: Don’t get too excited, because (oddly enough), I don’t have many pictures of margaritas (although I am happy to start a “Send Your Margarita Pictures” photo drive, if you’d like!).

I drink them, I promise–sometimes in copious amounts and therein might be the problem.  They’re just so darn tasty and easy to drink, like this one–which is a prickly pear margarita from Bejas in Fredericksburg, Texas (hometown, for all you newbies out there!)–that they tend to be gone before I even think to snap a pic!  Although this one’s bright red color made it impossible to ignore–and the perfect balance of sweet and citrus made it deeeee-licious! Salud!
