In lieu of Cinco de Mayo, which is TOMORROW – holy sh*t…can we take a second and just sit in shock that tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo. I literally don’t understand time anymore. It’s insane to me. This weekend is also the Derby, which means a ton of people in Colorado go to a huge party and get wasted and eat the terrible food that is provided at the party. I feel very lucky that my friends still have some faith to ask me to go. Because I literally ALWAYS say no. The derby party is my personal hell. I’m not sure if it’s downtown but if it is, that means Cinco de Mayo AND the Derby parties will be going on, all while I’m trying to walk my way to the Rockies game. That’s so many people. And the introvert in me is already causing me to have sweaty palms.

Anyways, back to the point. In lieu of Cinco de Mayo, here is a little margarita for your soul! I haven’t liked tequila, like…ever. But this year, we’ve started to make our own drinks at home way more often and I think tequila tastes WAY better when you make the drinks yourself. And the thing I hate about most restaurants and bars is that they all use triple sec in their drinks. First of all, I don’t even know what triple sec is, along with most ingredients in fancy cocktails. But I do know that I think triple sec tastes like sh*t and ruins all drinks. As soon as you remove the triple sec, it taste 4 billion times better. So that’s my secret to a better tasting cocktail – don’t add bullsh*t that doesn’t need to be there! Easy peasy!

The next two weekends are going to be busy AF. We have two Rockies games to go to this weekend. Go sports! I have two brunches to attend so I can catch up with friends that I haven’t seen in a hot minute. Then we are going to visit our friends who just popped out twins AND have a toddler. Insane. Could you imagine that? That’s so many tiny humans demanding your time and boobs. We also have my mother-in-law coming into town next weekend for Mother’s Day, so we are going to go to some dinners and do some girly stuff…probably go to another Rockies game. Go extra sports! Then have a lovely mothers day brunch at home! And I have a house warming party to stop in at.

And while all this is happening, we are trying to get our house painted and landscaping done. I swear to you, landscaping will never end here. A guy came over the other day and told us that we need to get some spruces and an autumn maple, which both start off at 6 feet and cost thousands of dollars, and then we can wait and watch them grow. He told me we could pour a glass of wine and wander around the yard to look at the flowers. Excuse me, bro, I’m not watching trees grow. Nor am I walking around my backyard with wine. I hate wine. And Jackson probably took a dump and I missed it because I like to put poop duty off for weeks. Looking at flowers and trees is not my goal. I don’t even want to be in this house for another 5 years. So what’s the point of spending money on trees? So people in 100 years can look at the trees…and maybe even cut them down? No thank you. I’m a realist here and the realist inside me says invest money in retirement, not trees.

Walk around the backyard with my wine?! PLEASE. If he would have said something a tad more intelligent…like a milkshake made with almond milk…he would probably have my business. He really needs to learn a little more about his target audience. Get to know his customer. The nerve.

I’m kidding, ok!? Kind of.

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. These look great, can’t wait to try them along with the grilled pineapple jalapeño ones!

    For these kinds of flavored rims, have you ever tried to use honey or agave instead of lime juice as the rim base? The seasoning stays on longer, and you get that incredible sweet/salty/spicy combo every sip!

    Gah I want to go to the My Favorite Murder live show in Denver so badly! But I haven’t disclosed that I listen to murder things in my spare time to my friends so I have nobody to go with. Can I sit with you and Joy? Kidding, kind of.

  3. If you’re just starting to like tequila, our favorite drink to make at home (b/c we hate drinking tequila at restaurants unless its mezcal tequila) is Don Julio, Fresca soda, and tons of lime. it simple, not to sweet at all, and is refreshing AF.

  4. Watch for the Longmont Tree Farm sale ????????. We scored five trees, including one 8′ maple, for under 2k last year (ugh, adulthood).

  5. As an arborist I can tell trees add so much value to your property! And you can have lovely tree that look full and healthy within five years, an autumn blaze maple being one of them. They can grow up to a foot a year. It may not seem like a good investment but when a tree that cost you 500 dollars installed gets you an extra 20,000 when you sell its definitely worth it. And a 2 inch maple should cost no more than 500.00 installed. Any more and you’re getting taken for a ride. And I live near enough to you to know how much things should cost. Good luck! And if you have tree questions feel free to contact me. I’m an arborist and I own a tree care company and I’m good enough that I’m an expert witness for tree related lawsuits.

  6. Loved this marg, Juli! Just the right amount of sweet— thanks for having awesome taste in cocktails!
