Pass the Guac

Hope you all have a festive Cinco de Mayo celebration FILLED with margaritas and as much salsa as you can handle. I plan on eating and drinking my weight in guacamole and drinky drinks. This is my favorite faux holiday after all.

And for all of you margarita lovers, here's a yummy recipe courtesy of the L.A. Times

Wedge of lime
2 teaspoons coarse margarita salt
14 ounces ruby red grapefruit juice, with pulp (about 3 medium grapefruits)
1 ounce lime juice
5 ounces reposado tequila
2 ounces triple sec
4 slices grapefruit or twists

1. Run a lime wedge halfway around the rims of four margarita glasses and dip into salt. Set aside.

2. Combine 7 ounces grapefruit juice, one-half ounce lime juice, 2 1/2 ounces tequila and 1 ounce triple sec in a cocktail shaker. Shake over ice until chilled. Strain into two ice-filled, salt-rimmed margarita glasses.

3. Garnish with a twist or slice of grapefruit. Repeat to make two more cocktails.


  1. Yummmmm. LOVE that bride's dress. The ruffles are AMAZE.

  2. Sigh* The beautiful colours of spring.

    Love the dress and love the flowers.

  3. i made the grapefruit margaritas last night and they were a huuuuge hit! i'm definitely keeping this recipe to use throughout the summer. margaritas are always better with fresh-squeezed juice!

  4. So glad you enjoyed them Taylor. They are on my must make this weekend list for sure!

  5. freakin' adorable post! i'm totally making that drink when wedding planning stresses me out. :)
