We recently added a few more bottles to our liquor supply. After my friend, Rachel, made me a margarita when I was visiting her in Kansas, I decided to add tequila and triple sec. And then I saw a recipe for margaritas using cointreau. That’s three more bottles. Our cabinet is pretty full. I’ve been experimenting on the best ratio and flavor combination.
I’m trying to figure out if alcohol goes under “groceries” or “recreation” in our budget. Thoughts?
We’re having a party next weekend, and I’m flipping through the drink section of my favorite cookbook. Must plan food around beverages, right? There’s a recipe for tequila mojitos which looks good, so I will make a batch this weekend to try it out. There’s also one for margarita granitas. It calls for “orange liqueur.” I asked Bill if that was the cointreau.
“There are three orange liqueurs,” he informs me. “We have them all.”
Hm. Maybe that’s excessive? Actually, there are quite a bit more than three, so maybe having only three is fine.
If you’re in the area, come visit. I hope you’re thirsty.
And if you happen to have a tequila based summer-time drink recipe you’d care to share, please do.
