Summer Bucket List

I suppose it's still spring, isn't it? But, today excluded, it's been 90+ degrees here this week. So I'm feeling summerish.

I got the My Recipes newsletter today and stumbled across a long list of margarita recipes! Well... HELLO! Margaritas are my peeps. So I have created my Margarita Summer Bucket List. I'm going to keep a tally on the blog and check them off as we go. Wanna try it with me?

Classic Margarita
I'm going to go ahead and check this one off, because I think we all know I've tried it! recipe here, or mine (which I think is perfect) here.

Raspberry "Sangre" Margarita
These are basically frozen raspberry margaritas. Not sure what the"Sangre" is about but it sounds fancy so let's go with it. Recipe here

Adirondack Margarita
Apple Juice? Well, OK, sure... Recipe here

Limeade Margarita
This involves dumping tequila over Lime Sorbet. How hard is that? If you still want a recipe, see here.

Pomegranate Margarita
I'm all about jumping on bandwagons- so let's get onto the Pomegranate one! Recipe here.

Watermelon Margaritas
This is going to be great for summer! And apparently they are lower calorie than other margaritas. Like I care! Recipe here.

Key Lime Margarita
This makes me want to hear some Jimmy Buffet. Recipe here.

Watermelon Mint Margarita
I have fresh mint growing, so this should be yummy. Recipe here.

Strawberry Banana Margarita
This sounds like a smoothie and I feel like I can get Niki to try it!! Recipe here.

Frozen Mint Margarita
I'm not a huge fan of Mint Juleps (or Bourbon in general for that matter), so I'm thinking this for the Kentucky Derby! Recipe here.

Combier Margarita
Come to find out, "Combier" is the original Triple Sec. Recipe here.

Cucumber Chili Margarita
Cayenne Pepper in a Margarita? Must try!! Recipe here.

So there it is- my summer bucket list. Who's with me??
(Niki, you're automatically in)



  2. Mmmm these all look so good and have me amped for bbq weather!!
    I LOVED the Help. Read it now!! I wrote about it... last week I think. SO GOOD. I can't wait for the movie!


All About Ashley

Spring, TX, Southern, United States
Playing with and keeping up with my nephew and niece take up a lot of my time. Van Geaux takes up the rest of it. Work is an afterthought most days! I like to be outside- but not when it's too hot. I get bored at my desk all day. Niki keeps my world spinning and without her and AC I'd lose it. My work ethic crashes at 4 p.m. daily and I live my sweet puppy and my hedgehog whenever I am not at Niki's. I truly believe naps are quality pass-time events, and sometimes I say bad words at work. I'm pretty sure I'm insane on multiple levels and I believe rules don't apply to me.
It seems that my life is quite entertaining. I didn't realize this myself, but was informed of it by my friends- who are rather entertained by tales of my life occurrences.

I'm far from a professional writer. These are just stories, comments, and other items for simple amusement. Hopefully it's a fun read, as Shannon plans to edit it into a book one day! Maybe we'll become famous, and maybe we'll just have some good laughs at my expense (and some other characters in my life). Either way, happy reading!
