Orange Persimmon Margarita

Orange Persimmon Margarita


Confession: The plan was to make a salad. This salad. I’m not sure when the salad plan went awry and the juicer came out.

Funny how that happens.

The outcome was gorgeous. I am simply in love with this shade of orange.

Like sunshine in a glass..that you drink…mixed with tequila. This margarita made my week. Gloomy days got a kick of citrus flavor swimming in persimmon sweetness. Enjoy!!

    Hum – it’s going to take awhile to figure out how a salad turns into a margarita. That’s a new one on me. :) But I have to say, if it weren’t 9:30 am, I’d be in there making this margarita! It does look delicious! Oh hell, it’s 5 pm somewhere. :) Have a great weekend! Thanks for the ping to my salad!
