Whole Fruit Margarita
A few years ago, I dragged Mr. Sidewalk Shoes and middle daughter to Costco. On Mother’s Day. For my Mother’s Day present. I already knew what I wanted, I just needed to convince them. So, I planted them in front of the Vitamix demonstration guy. We sipped the smoothies and savored the soups. Hubs and daughter agreed, I needed one ASAP. I’m sure it will come as a surprise to absolutely no one, but the first thing I made with it at home was a margarita. Not just any margarita, but this Whole Fruit Margarita.
This margarita is unique in that it is made with lemons, limes and oranges! That makes it healthy in my book, I bet it’s loaded with vitamin C. Not to mention the burst of citrus flavor and how crazy easy it is in the Vitamix. All you need is lemons, limes, oranges, tequila, Grand Marnier, sugar and ice cubes.
Also, some of you may be thinking, “Why is there a cocktail on Sidewalk Shoes? I thought Pam posted cocktails on Grey is the New Black.” I’ve decided to consolidate things. I don’t know why I thought I needed another blog. Really. Why??? What was I thinking? The only difference it means to you, my Sidewalk Shoes readers, is that now you get to see cocktails again – Yay!! And, you also get a weekly fashion post (and I know you are dying to see what I’m wearing this week.) Also, a restaurant or travel review. You’ll still get regular food posts, kitty cats, books and wine. It’s all good.
Now, back to that cocktail, The Whole Fruit Margarita. I found this gem in the manual that came with my Vitamix. This is so good, it is regularly rotated in our cocktail rotation. Make it and I’m sure it will go in yours!
