On a Clear Day{:~)

On a clear day in Mexico it feels like I can see all the way into Texas...not an easy task! We have had so many rainy, foggy days here in Nuevo Leon this summer I am thankful for sunny days. It can make me feel like I am living in a vacation land South of the Border somewhere. It also makes up for those days when we were socked in with fog so heavy it felt like we are cut off & at the edge of the universe down here; albeit a Spanish speaking universe! On a day as clear as today I can relax & sit with my feet up for a bit & even ignore the Thermal inversion drifting in from Monterrey. Not too bad today...I can almost hear Jimmy Buffet music playing~

Total repose & relaxation, somewhere in Mexico~

Margarita on the Rocks, the balcony or by the pool!

• 4 steps in making a Margarita on the rocks: 1. Gather everything you need. 2. Prepare your glass by rimming with kosher salt then filling with ice. 3. Pour 2 ounces Tequila (Reposado 1800, Don Julio or down here I like Don Ramon Tequila~ are all good) into a shaker tin half filled with ice, then 1 ounce triple sec/orange liqueur, and 1/2 ounce fresh lime juice. If you want it a tiny sweeter to balance the sour then just add a spoon of sugar or simple syrup. If you are making it with Sweet-n-Sour then use a couple of ounces in place of simple syrup. 4. Shake and strain into the glass. Garnish with a lime.

Salute! Mi Amigos
