Cinco de Mayo
Succulent Hen & Chicks with pottery shards in a centerpiece...
Burning piñon incense inside a miniature chiminea...
The perfect time to bring out a collection of vintage embroidered aprons from Mexico...
Bits and pieces are things I enjoy doing regularly... like slathering fresh pear slices with chunky sunflower seed Sunbutter, burning sweet smelling piñon wood from Incienso de Santa Fe in my mini Chiminea, sipping unorthodox frozen margarita's, and peeling back the corn husk of a steaming hot tamale. Doing it all on Cinco de Mayo!? You bet!
Goji Berry Frozen Margarita's
Goji berries have a very unique flavor which I can only liken to somewhere in the middle of a prune and fig. The Tequila and Cointreau knocks out some of the sweetness... a little salt takes it further. For this drink I used Goji berry concentrate juice provided by Rich Nature and my favorite hand blown GlassyBaby glass.
4 Tablespoon Goji Berry Juice
1 Ounce silver Tequila
1/2 Ounce Cointreau
1 Ounce fresh lime juice
1 Cup chopped ice
Combine ingredients in a blender and process into blended. As an alternative you can omit the ice and use a shaker... it'll be more portant that way. Line the glass rim with salt or berry flavored sugar.
