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!!!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful Mothers out there … and soon-to-be-Moms, too!

Here’s a pic of just a few awesome Moms in my life, but much much love to all you Moms!!!!

Hello, it’s the Happiest Place on Earth. Disney World, that is … and it’s about to get bigger. I hadn’t been to Disney in way too long, so I was super excited to make a quick weekend trip over. We were total park hoppers and Disney experts along with our friends D & JP, making it to Disney World, EPCOT and MGM in one day! People mover, check. Tower of Terror, check. Soaked on Splash Mountain, done. Drinks in Mexico and dinner in Japan, definitely.

And I was excited to see that Disney is improving and expanding Fantasyland! Looks like I’ll be seeing you real soon, Disney 🙂

This weekend I ventured out of my normal five-mile radius shell.  Seriously, I actually got my ass on I-95.  I made my way south past a handful of exits off the highway, to hit up Delray Beach.  In high school, I would venture to downtown Delray on Thursdays for Jazz on the Ave to hang out with friends.  It was a little seedy, but artsy and pretty safe if you stayed on Atlantic Ave, the main road.  But, fast forward to 2010 Atlantic Ave and I spy a Rolls Royce, collagen-injected lips and guys-too-old-to-be-hanging-out-with-those-girls-who-look-16.  I guess those seeds got brushed to the side.  It wasn’t all plastic, though … I mean, I was there.  Oh wait, my Havaianas (fresh from the motherland, Brasil! My favorite Brasilian rocks!!!) are made of plastic. Does that count?!

People aside, I was in Delray for food; the annual Tastemakers of Delray Beach event was on.  A restaurant ‘crawl’ with 24 local places giving up food, wine, beer & cocktails.  It was a really good time, and it’s events like this that remind me how much I love to eat and drink.  I may not be the most adventurous eater, but … well, the old addage goes, if you can’t be an athlete, at least be an athletic supporter! Cevich, cab savs, guiness, ciders, butternut squash soups, sushi, chardonnays … I’m getting full just thinking about all the food and drinks!!!

Our first stop was Ziree, a sushi & Thai restaurant:

Next we made our way to Linda Bean’s Perfect Maine, and the Shipyard Summer Ale they were offering up was a great beer for the sticky, humid night! And, according to all my company that night, the lobster roll was a-may-zing!
