Carrot Margarita

Sipping Saturday

On Monday I filled 185 plastic easter eggs with goodies.

On Tuesday I taped, glued and glittered eggs, bunnies and baskets with my girls.

On Wednesday I ran to the store to pick up the perfect shade of purple my daughter just had to have for her Easter basket.

On Thursday I moved the enormous Easter pinata located in my living room for the fifth time so I could clean.

On Friday as I grated carrots for cupcakes.  I had planned to send with hubby for his co workers.  I became a little frustrated.

I was a little Eastered out.  I was over planning, over preparing and over stressing for a holiday that was a week away.

Honestly who would care if the eggs weren’t perfect, if the decorations were slightly runny from excess glue or if I even sent cupcakes?

I needed to relax.  So I chucked all the carrots into my juicer and concoted this groovy Easter Margarita.  Before the glass touched my lips I hesitated.  It is kinda different, but I like different.  Enjoy!

If you enjoy fresh carrot juice this is the drink for you.  The fresh juice adds a refreshing backdrop to the lime juice.

    The only thing I would adjust would be trying Chili Con Limon on half the rim. Yumm!! Which would be good on most of the fruit & cucumber versions.

    I know how you felt. I used to plan everything, even the smallest detail. I gave up when i realized life is too short, I don’t need all that stress.
    I love carrot juice and your margarita sounds like a great idea. Guess what? It’s 5 o’clock! Where’s my margarita?!?! LOL

    I couldn’t help but laugh and feel that you may have a special kinship with my Mom. I’m sending her your post and your drink. She over-plans and loves margaritas ;o))

    Ciao for now,
    Claudia

    My first thought was “you must be kidding”, and more I thought, more I thought that actually would be yummie, why not make your margarita healthy? I will definitely give this a try, maybe will relax me too :-) Have a great week!

    You have been one busy lady! This margarita was definitely well deserved. I’ve never heard of a carrot margarita before…sounds different, but good! Hope this upcoming week is more relaxing for you :)

    I love everything here. The color, the idea of a carrot margarita – but I especially love the decision to take some “me-time” and create for yourself.

    I hope you savored that margarita :)
    Sounds like you’re gonna have a fun Easter next week. Good luck with the rest of plans, maybe you relax with a chocolate martini next time ;)

    I so remember those days of frazzled, hectic jungling of all to do for the holidays when my kids were younger! I wish I had that Margarita to take a moment and relax! What a creative idea, looks delicious and healthy!

    watch out, you’re getting pretty innovative with these margaritas…. and hey, busy girls need a vitamin boost right, sounds like this is perfect

    Go you for doing something for YOURSELF. Sometimes we all need to remember to take a step back and just drink a margarita. A healthy margarita no less!
