It’s Friday and all we should be thinking about right now is the weekend. But before we can kick off those two glorious days of relaxation, that we spent all week looking forward to, we need to answer a very important question. What is our weekend cocktail going to be? What will we be drinking while we sit by the pool, or in the backyard, or even just on the couch (I’m not judging)? Weekends are so special that they deserve their very own cocktail. It’s true! A Friday-Saturday-Sunday drink is so much different than a Monday-Tuesday-Wednesday-Thursday drink. During the week, it’s all about a glass (or two of wine) as I wind down from the long work day. Anything more than that, and I won’t be getting out of bed the next morning. I’m not as young as I used to be. And since I always have way too much work during the week, I tend not to overdo it. But come Friday, give me a perfectly mixed cocktail and I’ll be good to go.
I am a big fan of margaritas in general. Any flavor margarita, I’m not picky. I’ll take them any way I can get them. On the rocks or blended. It doesn’t matter. If I had to make a choice though, I’d much rather prefer a frozen margarita. It’s a lot more refreshing, especially on a hot summer day. There’s something so exciting about margaritas. I think it’s the idea of drinking them at a bar of a restaurant, snacking on chips and salsa and guacamole and chatting with a few people about nothing in particular. It’s chill without any of life’s stresses or worries. Am I painting you a good picture here? I hope so. Go out this weekend, gather some friends and family, and have some margaritas and chips with salsa just for me. You’ll be thankful you did, and I’ll be glad you took my advice. (Plus I’ll get to live vicariously through you, so there’s that).
If you’re still on the lookout for what you’re weekend cocktail is going to be, look no further because I’ve got you covered. It’s summer so that means we should all spend less time indoors in a kitchen and more time outside as much as possible with a drink in hand. Where ever allowed of course. Let’s not do anything illegal here. These Spicy Honeydew Cucumber Margaritas are summer at its best. The fresh honeydew and cucumber juice really make a difference and the fact that it’s blended makes me very happy. I think it’ll make you happy too. Go out and celebrate the weekend. You deserve it.
