Happy Cinco de Mayo to you margarita-drinking and enchilada-eating lovers!  Today is the day for both of those activities in honor of Mexican heritage and pride.  This day should not be confused with Mexico's independence day which occurs sometime in September I believe.  I know I've always appreciate great Mexican food and a delicious margarita.  It seems to be, in my experience, if the margarita and chips and salsa are good a Mexican restaurant then the entree with will excellent as well.  So far that theory has been supported, again, in my experience.  

So in my own honor of the day I made a burrito and a margarita.  Both were delicious.  I've never personally made a margarita from scratch (and I'm not talking about the frozen kind you can buy in the freezer section of the grocery store). Since we have Don Julio in the liquor cabinet I decided to visit the Don Julio web site to see what type of recipes they for margaritas.  I made the Don Julio Blanco Luxury Margarita.  It was simple and delicious.  When making adult beverages I have always believed that less is more in terms of ingredients.  This recipe had tequila, simple syrup/agave nectar and fresh lime juice.  It was great! Suffice it to say I will not be buying margarita mixes anytime soon.

PS. If you read my last blog entry I told you that I never looked up a word because I was too lazy. Well, my curiosity got the better of me and I looked up the word.  The word was connivance...go ahead, look it up!
