I love reading recipes. I don’t always make them, and I certainly don’t always follow them even when they are in front of me. So when my favorite Brazilian Mila invited us over to bbq this weekend and said she was making her beer margaritas recipe, I was intrigued. When we bbq, it’s usually caipirinhas, not margaritas. But, of course, I had to try this beer margarita at least once.

And … it wasn’t bad. It was refreshing, given the limeaid and us using Corona. (Mila specified Modelo Especial, but the store didn’t have any. So Corona it was.) And it was just the right amount of beer-taste combined with just the right amount of margarita-taste. I don’t think I could drink these all night, but … good times 🙂

And here’s the recipe we used if you are getting thirsty:

1 bottle of beer

1 small can of frozen Limeaid

4-5 shots of tequila

2 shots of Grand Marnier, Cointreau, or triple sec

In a glass pitcher, combine everything and stir! Pour over ice and ENJOY 🙂

Hope everyone had a wonderful Labor Day weekend!!!

Move over, Lance Armstrong, I don’t think this is your kind of tour.

OK, so it wasn’t the Tour de France, but there were a lot of bikes. Bottles of water? This tour had bottles of beer. Now this is the kind of tour I like. And I didn’t have to wear a tight yellow shirt or get helmet hair.

J and I hit up the annual Tour de Bar in Palm Beach County this year. What rock have I been under?! I had never heard of this event, yet it was in its 30th or something year! It was awesome to check out local watering holes we’ve never been to; we hit up everything from a classic dive in the ghetto to a fancy marina bar on the waterfront. And nothing says ‘tour’ like a crowd, beer and police!

I made it to Relish yesterday. It opened in West Palm Beach, in the historic  Northwood neighborhood.

I can’t ignore a burger joint, so I made JP go there. I’ll be honest, though, the name makes me go ick. When I hear relish, I think of the gross green pickley stuff they offer up at hot dog stands. But once I made it to Relish, the green pickley image was gone.

In place, an offering of burgers — shrimp, beef, lamb, turkey, wild boar, buffalo, lobster & more — that you can top with any ‘relish’ you’d like. My choice for the first-time test was a classic beef burger with the drunken onion relish — sweet onions slow cooked in beer.

Along with the burger, they have fries (which come with one of their signature flavored salts, we chose truffle salt), craft beers, wine, wings and handcrafted milkshakes!

The verdict: Two yums up! Check out Relish’s website and menu here.

August is almost over.  Seriously, where did it go?  I hate this point in summer, when I realize it’s almost over and I have to stop bitching about how freakin’ hot it is.  (And it was freakin’ hot this weekend.)  It’s bittersweet, though.  I’ll miss the long days, but I’m happy to let the humidity drop.  I’ll miss the lazy days lounging by the pool, but I can’t wait to bust the chiminea out and make s’mores!  Oh the ups and downs of life!

The summer has been good to me, to us.  I learned how to SCUBA; we soaked up a ton of rays at Peanut Island; we celebrated our 2-year wedding anniversary; we drank good beer; we didn’t get robbed; listened to great new and old music; ate good food; the list goes on and on.
