I’m not the hugest drinker (I’m plenty uninhibited without alcohol), but I do love a Sunday afternoon at the Border Cafe in Harvard Square with cheesy Mexican food, guac, and a killer margarita on the rocks, with salt. Sunday afternoon because I like to come home and recuperate from too much food and tequila with a nice nap.
Summertime is best done with fruity drinks, including fruit margaritas. In past summer’s we’ve blended frozen margaritas on the Cape, with extra coarse salty rims. This summer my husband’s been having fun raiding the fridge to concoct pitchers of sangria, and enjoying Painkillers from South Hollow Spirits at the Truro Vineyard. My current summer cocktail is a strawberry basil martini muddled and mixed by Curtis at Black Fish in Truro. (It’s dark in the bar so I haven’t been able to snap a good photo.)
Really, we should try making one of these fruit margaritas. Click through for the bloggers’ recipes. I’d like a peach one if you’re mixing.
