This is what I wore yesterday for a night of drinking at home and at the bar with friends. I'm wearing a skirt and top from GAP, a Forever 21 belt and Urban Outfitter flats.
|You can't even tell I've had one very stiff margarita.|
|I think I was spinning too fast for Jackie to get a decent shot.|
If you've never made your own margaritas from scratch, you have to try this recipe. You'll never go back to pre-made mix again. It takes a little more time, but it's so worth it.
Ingredients: tequila blanco, Gran Gala (or Grand Marnier, if you can afford it), fresh-squeezed lime juice, simple syrup
To make the simple syrup, boil equal parts sugar and water for 5 minutes and let cool. If you don't own a lime squeezer, definitely invest in one for this drink. You'll need about two limes for one shot of juice.
Combine 2 parts tequila, 1 part Gran Gala, 1 part lime juice, 1 part simple syrup in a shaker filled with ice. After shaken, pour into a salt-rimmed glass.
Just writing all that made me feel a little nauseous. Just a heads up, you only need one of these margaritas to feel pretty good. After two, it's all downhill.
