Quattro De Mayo???

I love love love margarita's... my husband calls me "Margarita Mimi". So, in honor of Cinco De Mayo, we thought we would celebrate a day early and beat the crowds :0... In fact, if we want to avoid the crowd all together, I make a pretty mean margarita at home.....

Margarita's ~

one blender and lots of ice

1 4oz. can Minute Maid Limeade
40z tequila
2oz Grand Marnier
splash Triple Sec
1oz water

Blend above ingredients. Serve in a salted rim glass with a wedge of lime.

Another favorite...Ina's Guacamole


4 ripe avocados
3T freshly squeezed lemon juice
8 dashes Tabasco sauce
1/2 Cup small-diced red onion
1 garlic clove, minced
1T kosher salt
1t freshly ground pepper
1 medium tomato, seeded, and small-diced

Cut the avocados in half, remove the pits and scoop the flesh out of their shell into a large bowl.
Immediately, add lemon juice, Tabasco, onion, garlic, salt, and pepper and toss well. Using a sharp knife, slice through the avocados in the bowl until they are finely diced. Add the tomatoes. Mix well and taste for salt and pepper. (I make a couple hours ahead and chill.)
Serve with chips and salsa.

Happy Cinco De Mayo......(the 5th day in the 5th month.) Cheers!!!

It's a very important day at our house. We call it cinco de Miko. We even own a "sink-o" de mayo that we keep in the barn for special occasions. It's an old sink from a junk yard that is painted very festively for the holiday We'll be celebrating tomorrow after work.
