Wow!! It’s been 8 days since I last posted!!!
We were looking after “the boss man’s” puppy, Bentley a.k.a Marley!
Bentley baby was picked up on Saturday night and life is slowly getting back to normal 😀
He really wasn’t all that bad, we found the mornings the worst, 3 dogs excited to go outside and 2 indoor cats waiting to make a break for it!
We’d have him back in a heartbeat!
Last night “the boss man” invited us over for a drink, one of his signature Margaritas.
He mixed up a huge batch in a blender enough for the 4 of us but he won’t share his secret mix. 😀
The one drink that I did have, was pretty potent! I was a little tippy on the way up the hill to the driveway. 😀
I think I’ll be one up on him with this recipe though!
6 cups tequila (you’ll need to buy two fifths for this)
2½ cups triple sec (just buy one fifth, please)
2½ cups fresh lime juice
2½ cups fresh lemon juice
2 cups simple syrup
Mix ingredients together in gallon container. Don’t forget to refrigerate! When ready to serve, pour mixture into a 16-ounce glass filled with ice. Salted rim is optional.
Makes 21 margaritas.
Full of juicy watermelon, fresh mint and a dash of cherry, this refreshing cocktail would make a great drink any day!!
The ingredients can be increased to suit the number of servings needed.
Makes 1 serving
3 fresh mint sprigs
¼ cup (60 mL) watermelon purée
1 tsp (5 mL) cherry-flavoured syrup OR grenadine
3 tbsp (45 mL) freshly squeezed lime juice
¼ cup (60 mL) light rum
2 tbsp (30 mL) chilled sparkling water OR club soda
Sugar cane stirrer AND lime wedge (optional)
In a tall glass, place mint. Using the back of a wooden spoon, muddle to release oil.
In a blender, purée watermelon for 20 seconds. In a cocktail glass, combine watermelon, cherry syrup, lime juice and rum. Stir well. Add ice and top with sparkling water. Garnish with a sugar cane stirrer and lime wedge, if desired, and serve immediately.
It’s supposed to be sunny all weekend so remember that there is no stronger sunscreen than sitting in a bar!

If there was a better day to make a round of Tommy’s Magarita, I’d like to know what it is….
Sunday is Cinco de Mayo, which is celebrated throughout Mexico!
What’s the reason for the revelry?
The day commemorates the 1862 Battle of Puebla, in which the Mexican army defeated French forces.
- 60 ml Olmeca Altos Reposado Tequila
- 30 ml freshly-squeezed lime juice
- 15 ml agave nectar
- Moisten the outer rim of a rocks glass with a lime wedge and coat lightly with kosher salt. Shake tequila, lime juice, and agave nectar over ice. Strain intoto the prepared rocks glass.
