Last Saturday I picked up some avocados while at the grocery store. I was definitely craving some guacamole in this heat. I took those beauties home, put them on the kitchen counter, and waited for them to ripen.
In the meantime, I realized that guacamole was useless without a margarita. The train of though went something like this: Yum, margaritas. Wait, I haven't seen a liquor store here. No margarita mix either. How exactly does one make a margarita in Switzerland?
So I logged on to my local Yahoo group and posted a desperate plea for help in this matter.
I immediately got replies pointing me to stores that sold tequila. Most of the replies were very helpful. One told me to Google margarita recipes. Funny.
So off I went yesterday on the search for tequila, Cointreau, and lime/lemon juice.
It took me a bit but I found the store and purchased the one brand of tequila they sold. Also picked up some Cointreau.
Next stop, grocery store. Couldn't find lime juice so I sent Brian to a different store to look for it on his way home last night. He came home with three bottles of lime juice.
How much does he expect me to drink exactly?
Anyway, I am now enjoying some fresh guacamole and a drink that resembles the margaritas I've had in the past. I'd give you my recipe but the construction of this drink involved a lot of different splashes and taste tests.
Margarita mixes are MUCH simpler.
