double decker bus-to a venice beach beer garden-to a turtle racing bar-to a yacht-to a school bus-to a karaoke bar – all with my friends and fantastic little sister Tess (the freckled lovely in the photos above)… these were the events of this past saturday. started at 1:30pm and ended at midnight. a long day of fun in the sun and the wind with more liquor than i’ve had in a while… i’m not a big drinker to begin with and i’m pretty picky about my what i drink when i drink…
saturday’s choice is what i have dubbed the Macro(biotic) Margarita. the sugar in alcohol is what usually gives you a gnarly hangover, the dehydration doesn’t help, but you may notice the head pounding is a lot worse after you imbibe lots of sugary drinks…. my solution: a low glycemic homemade margarita (any of the store-bought mixes will have loads of cane sugar).
Macro Margarita recipe (makes 2 to 3 drinks)…you will be blown away by how good this is!:
– the juice of 3 to 4 fresh limes
– the juice of 1 fresh orange
– tequila (eye-ball it dude, i say go for around 2 shots per drink because you won’t taste it with all the lime and agave nectar!)
– organic agave nectar (around 2 teaspoons per drink)
– filtered water (you can use sparkling water too for a bit of fizz)
squeeze the juice from the limes and orange through a strainer (to avoid seeds) into a measuring cup (for easier pouring). next add the tequila. then add the agave, to taste. dilute with water to taste. then pour in your flask (to-go style) and chill in the fridge or blend with ice or serve over ice with salt in a fancy glass.
