I think my margaritas were better!


Though these weren't too bad.

My recipe is as follows - to make a jug of frozen margarita you will require:

6 shots tequila (silver is better)
4.5 shots of Cointreau
Juice and pulp of ten fresh limes.
1 tablespoon of sugar
a dash of blood orange juice (2 shots)
5 cups of ice cubes.

Put the alcyhol in a blender jug (a big one)

Add juice and sugar and ice.

Blend until it is the consistency of a slush puppie (or Icee). The crystals should be small enough to slurp up a straw.

Get ready to be merry!

I don't know why she is smiling in this shot.


Could be Margarita related?

Columbus Circle in Manhattan at dusk.


I just love that city, roll on next year for another visit!

Suffering some post holiday blues but I find that there are good memories to be had by looking at my photos. A year isn't that long a time when you think about it.

We have a few of these in our back garden.


They can be quite a nuisance but they do make for good subject matter. Probably best seen larger, go to this link here.
