Default Join us in Margaritaville!

I have to give Trip credit for this post. She got the margarita crazies together with her post, soo....

My conversation with the bouncer for the world's greatest Margarita party:

"Okay Bulldog (shut up, I'm from Atlanta,) here's the beginning of the guest list for the Cruisemates All Good Margaritas Go To Heaven party. It goes without saying that Jimmy Buffett gets free drinks all night."


Guest List so far
Susie
Rollerdonna
April
Betty
Phil and Liz
Crazysis
The "Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off" crowd MIGHT be asked to leave after the first hour or so - get ready to use that muscle.

"There will be other names added to the party list. I'll let you know later."

Consider tihs your invitation.

Well, since I am getting a credit here, I want an invite! I too, love the "M" drink, but here's the thing.

Since I don'r drink that often, I want to try the newest, foo fooiest, [trendiest, is that even a word, drink"

Ya now how ships are considered old, when they are around 10? That's sort of how I feel about a margarita. She is a nice old lady, but I want her baby sister:):)

I definitely need an invite! msblackjack provided me with the best (and absolutely the easiest!) recipe for a margarita!

Not only do they make your clothes fall off, they make you feel invisible!

You're in, Trip, and you too Darlene. And we've got just the ticket at this party for your updated Margarita taste. I whipped out my copy of Boat Drinks (yep, Buffet) and here's a little history about the original, as well as recipes for the "little sisters."

"At his home bar in 1980, artist Bart Johnson perfected the Margarita as a remedy to South Carolina's "blue laws" that prohibited the sale of booze on Sunday. After one of Bart's friends told him of Jimmy's quest for the "Perfect Margarita," Bart Illustrated "The Road to the Perfect Margarita," then sent it off to Margaritaville.

The rest is history. Meanwhile back in Mt. Pleasant, Bart copyrighted concoction is till served in his home bar: "Oh a Lana's." If Bart won't let you in, here are a few remedies for the blues:"

Basic Margarita
1 jigger tequila
1/2 jigger Triple Sec
1 jigger lime juice
salt
lime wedge

Perfect Margarita
juice of 2 lime wedges
1 jigger premium tequila oro
1/4 jigger tequila blanco
3/4 jigger lime juice
1/4 jigger Triple Sec
splash orange Curacao
salt/lime wedge

Add to the basic Margarita for a new Margarita:

Blue Margarita
Blue Curacao

Peach Margarita
peach liqueur

Rosarita Margarita (or a margarita trying to be a cosmo if you ask me)
cointreau
cranberry juice
sour mix

Strawberry Margarita
Strawberry liqueur

Texas Rita
same as regular, but juice of 2 limes and Rose's lime juice

Uptown top shelf margarita
Grand Marnier
sour mix

Peach Margarita
peach liqueur
triple sec

There's more, but I'm going to be sent to rehab if I don't stop talking about Margaritas!

Anybody else joining us?

For those of you who don't know about the Sweet Potato Queens - here is their best ever Margarita recipe:
1 lg can frz limeade
1 12 oz Corona beer
1 12 oz Sprite
12 oz tequila (the best you can afford)
Mix all ingredients in a pitcher (DO NOT MIX IN BLENDER). Serve on the rocks in salt-dipped glasses. When my girl cousins and I have a reunion this is our poison of choice.

The list is getting longer:

Judy is onboard (and she's bringing her gin and tonics, too!)

Arkiegal and Martha are drinking what I call Margarona's! Yummy

LisaK is with us, too. When's the party, Lisa? We'll have to work on that!

Maybe it can called the Margarita Madness cruise...

So far, this party's all female. Will it be a hen fest or are mates, lovers, and boyfriends invited, too?

Hate to leave out any margarita lovers, but so far mostly heard from women!! Speak up guys if you like that frozen (or on the rocks) concoction that helps you hang on...

I don't know about inviting men in general, but my son-in-law is a lock. He drinks margaritas and he's a musician-so he provides the tunes.

Hey, thanks for including me in the invite! I'll be there with bells on! And dancing up a storm, just ask Susie, April and CruzNut!

I'd also like to share this recipe I got in Nova Scotia last weekend. These wonderful Margaritas were being served up as an alternative to the wine tasting at a big German Wine Festival. We ate delicious German Potato Pancakes, with tender breaded pork loins, and washed them down with these magic Margaritas! MMMMMMM!

For 1 Pitcher:

4 oz. Mott's Margarita Mix
1/4 juice of lime
4 ice cubes
1 oz. Brother Herble Liqueur
Sprinkle of salt
Mix in blender, 1 pitcher holds 4 servings.
Cheers!

donna

Hey - I want in too! Someone has to take the pix of Susie and RollerDonna dancing while April and I watched them. And, I do always get the free margarita at Pancho's Backyard in Cozumel ... just didn't want to pop $12 for one in Grand Cayman, so had my beer for $6. No way cheap, mon!
