Bad blogger! Well, not really.

Posted on

I’ve been off on book tour, so I’ve neglected the blog, but I find this space so comforting that I need to be back, daily!  I’ve also had the great pleasure of meeting so many wonderful new clients that I am breathless with anticipation of all the gorgeous parties we’re going to create together!

So, it’s Thirsty Thursday, right?  That and I’ve started to do a little Polyvore love for you brides, fashionistas and even men!   Now, I am currently drinking a Green Superfood Spirulina juice that I made in my new crazy, fabulous Breville juicer, but that is clearly not a #ThirstyThursday kind of post.   Let’s quaff, shall we?  As always, the farmers’ market and my local Whole Foods (not to mention a trip to sunny Los Angeles and a friends’ lemon trees) inspire me and I’ve noticed that lemons are really looking good.   To wit: The (Meyer or not) Lemon Margarita – L.A. Style.

(Meyer) Lemon Margarita Recipe

1 1/2 oz. fresh (Meyer) Lemon Juice – you probably need 4 lemons.  Roll them on the counter first to release the juices!
1 1/2 oz. of the best silver tequila money can buy – you want smooth!
1 oz. Triple Sec 

sea salt for rimming glass – optional

1. Rub the rim of a margarita glass or double rock glass (my preference) with a lemon slice.  Swirl the rim through a small pile of sea salt (I use Baleine brand) to salt the rim.

2. Put the fresh lemon juice, tequila, and triple sec in a cocktail shaker, add ice and shake for 15 seconds.

3. Put some very fresh, square ice cubes in your glass.  Strain the cocktail into the glass and enjoy.

Y’all; it’ll be Cinco de Mayo before you know it!  Cheers!
