Windowsill Margarita recipe



F

Frood

Guest
When we moved into our house 2 years ago, I found a cryptic
message penciled on the window sill: 6 oz T... 6 oz T
Sec....lime juice... Rose's.... Hey! That looks like a
margarita recipe! I tried it out, and dang! It is a great
recipe! I asked the former homeowners about it, and they had
forgotten all about it.

I plugged the points into the Recipe Builder, and called it
3 servings so it comes out to 5 pts/serving. DH and I
usually split a pitcher and so have 1
1/2 each. Watch out!

6 oz Tequila 6 oz Triple Sec 2 oz + 1 Tbls + 2 tsp. fresh
lime juice (this took 1 1/2 limes) 2 oz + 2 tsp. Rose's
Lime juice

For those outside of the US, Rose's Lime juice is a lime
cordial, a very sweet, non-alcoholic syrup.

Hey, it's not an everyday recipe, but if one is going
to indulge in a margarita, it might as well be worth
the points!

Since we found out DH is diabetic, we've pretty much given
up on alcoholic drinks. I don't think it's fair to drink in
front of him when he doesn't drink anymore. But - WOW! does
that margarita sound good! It must be the fresh lime juice -
most recipes I've seen just use the bottled stuff.

Tell you what, Donna. You come out here, and I'll mix us up
a pitcher of margaritas, and we'll rootle the stash and have
a grand time!

Wow what an invite! Wish I could. Far as I'm going to
get this year is to the Project Linus conference in
Illinois in June.

My DS talked about putting in for a transfer closer to your
part of the country, decided on Houston & then ended up
staying in Portland (OR) for at least another year at the
request of the Coast Guard.

I kinda doubt that my cousin would take me that far! He'll
pick me up and take me home with him, but that's just 150
miles away from Bloomington.

I haven't been there for many years now, haven't had any
reason to go. I think the last trip was probably 5 years
ago for a baseball tournament ... and the town looked the
same to me as it did when I had friends attending college
there (and that was a looooooooooooong time ago). LOL Now
my son is the one who visits Bloomington, to visit HIS
friends attending the college. Guess it's just one of those
towns I will always think of as being not much other than
teenage partiers.
