Strawberry Lime Margarita
I have slept in every day this week for no other reason except I felt like it.
On Wednesday I had the smallest bit of guilt, but I quickly dismissed it and sent it on its way. I went on with my day sipping coffee, making waffles for lunch, juicing strawberries for this margarita all while barefoot, in my hubby’s shorts and no makeup. Man, life has been good this week. Maybe I can convince myself to take next week off too. I doubt it, but it was amazing.
Invest in yourself, really you’re worth it! Take an hour, a day or even a weekend and make it your own. It can bring such clarity to your life, refresh your senses and make your realize it’s the little things that count. Like these little berries that escaped my girls snappy hands. How sweet that these little red buttons can bring me such joy. Enjoy.
- lime wedges
- 1 cup tequila
- 2 cups fresh strawberry juice strained
- 1/2 to 3/4 cup fresh lime juice
- 1/2 cup Cointreau

Amen, Sister – I do believe in power wrapping your arms around yourself and shouting out how good you are . . . and I am talking about you – hey, hope all is well and you all are settling in…

Invest in yourself….that’s what I need to do! This margarita sounds like a great first step. I love the hearts you had cut out of the strawberries.
Sara @ Saucy Dipper says
Excellent advice. I feel like I’ve been running on empty for awhile and a week of lazing around might be what I need….but only if I can take one of these drinks with me. How cute is that garnish!?!
First, how adorable are your strawberry hearts?! Love!
Second, I love that you sent guilt on its way and enjoyed your day. I took a nap a mere 2 hours after waking up yesterday and I don’t feel guilty one bit. We deserve it! We work hard! 🙂
Quite possibly my most favorite of frosty alcoholic beverages.

Those little strawberry hearts are the cutest things I’ve ever seen!! LOVE!! And good for you for taking time off. It’s always nice to give ourselves permission to recharge.
I love your advice 🙂 It’s wonderful doing nothing and enjoying it!
What a beautiful drink! Strawberry margaritas are the best and with fresh juice, awesome.

One day soon, one day soon, I will have waffles for lunch and fruity, blood red margaritas for dinner, while ignoring everything else but myself. One day *sigh* Tiny strawberries on a stick?? Love!
Magic of Spice says
How pretty is that 🙂 I wish I were not allergic to strawberries…they are like sunshine 🙂
And your week off sounds lovely, need to try that 🙂
I am wanting this back in my life. Trying to be patient and wait for strawberry season which would make this drink amazing. But your photos – oh how they say “now!”
