Friday = Happy Hour

My husband has decided that he wants to be a bartender. For the past three weeks he's been watching videos on YouTube, learning how to make drinks. And in the process our liquor cabinet shelf has become quite full.



Anyway, after going out for Mexican food for dinner, I decided that I needed another margarita when we got home. And he delivered {of course}. Now, this isn't any margarita. It's a very delicious margarita and now I'm going to give you the recipe.

1 1/2 oz. Tequila
3/4 oz. Cointreau
3/4 oz. Lime Juice
A splash of cranberry

Shake and serve on the rocks. You can add salt if you want. If you're like me, you hate the taste of salt when it gets into your margarita and will refrain from the urge to put it on the rim. 


{That's not my drink from tonight. But I imagine that's what my drink might look like if I had cute mason jars and perfectly sliced lemons to add as garnish}

Happy Friday, friends. I hope you all had a wonderful happy hour evening as well.

Much love,

Nothing like an awesome man who can make you awesome drinks! I hope you get to keep enjoying delicious drink experiments as a result of your husband's new aspiration! :)

my hubby is the same way he's always googling crazy drinks to make then going out and buying totally random types of alcohol that we use once then never again. that margarita sounds really good though!

my husband was a bartender for two years before we moved to England...needless to say, when we throw parties, we are never without some yummy cocktails.

You're a lucky woman- my husband "bartends" with no bartending knowledge so we've tried some very "interesting" concoctions.. he also tries this in the kitchen at times when cooking dinner. *sigh*

That looks wonderful! And I HATE salt with my margarita. It seems hard to explaine to the waitress at our local Mexican place. Im sure she thinks Im crazy.
