If you’ve been paying attention to a couple of previous blog posts, you’ll find out that I started the TV show Supernatural in the middle of this past semester. And I had fallen in love with the cast and crew as well as some of their significant others, because many of them are literal definitions of couple goals and family goals.
Recently, Genevieve Padalecki- who is not only Jared Padalecki’s (who plays Sam Winchester) wife, but also portrayed one of the villains in season four of the show, went live on her very own blog, called Now & Gen. I loved following her Instagram because it is soooooo gorgeous so I was very excited when she announced her blog was finally live.
One of her posts in her food & drink section caught my attention right away when she posted it because it dealt with margaritas. She describes how her step father has been making these certain margaritas all her life and she decided to share it with her readers. After reading her blog post, all I knew is that I wanted to try them for myself.
The time finally came after a baseball game when arriving home, Katie (one of my roommates), surprised me with the bottle of tequila I had been begging for since moving in. Thankfully, Izzy was also present and had no problem shooting a couple of photos for this blog post.
What you need is:
To make them is really simple as well. First pour the frozen limeade into a blender, and then pour orange juice into the empty can until about half way. Add that to the blender, and proceed to add the tequila. I used a double shot glass of tequila. I also added ice as my frozen limeade wasn’t completely frozen to the extent I wanted it to be, but that is optional.
Blend until the frozen limeade is mixed and there is some froth to the drink. Then we added the Corona (we used Genevieve’s suggestion of beer) and blend once more. After it has been blended, take your glasses (we used some deep wine glasses), wet the rime with lime and sprinkle the beer salt onto the edge. Pour the frozen drink into the glasses and voila! Ready to be enjoyed poolside, in the patio or as you’re getting ready to go out.
I am very particular about margaritas because tequila has never been my favorite and some people use way too much of it in their drinks but I found that this drink is the perfect blend. Everyone else at the house (there was like seven people besides Izzy and I) agreed that as well.
Thank you to Genevieve for sharing her family’s recipe and I cannot wait to continue to make these throughout the rest of the Texas summer and probably into the fall!
Until next time lovelies,
