Summer is officially in full swing and I'm enjoying the sunshine and time with my kiddos. I'm also enjoying the fact that I have more time to spend with my teacher friends outside of school. During the school year we make a point to go to dinner once every couple of months, but we are always on our best behavior because even though it's the weekend we have papers to correct and lesson plans to write. Luckily, the Summer means a lot less work. Yes, teachers continue to work over the Summer and some of the real crazies work summer school. Yep, that would be me. So I was thrilled to have an opportunity to spend time with my teacher friends and enjoy these Lemonade Teagarita Mixed Drinks after the last day of school last week.
Lemonade Teagarita Mixed Drinks
My girlfriends and I are not huge drinkers, but we definitely enjoy a good fruity drink whether it's alcoholic or not. When we do order alcoholic drinks with our dinners it's usually a margarita of some sort so these Lemonade Teagaritas went over extremely well. The Iced Teagarita is a classic lime margarita blended with Jose Cuervo Tequila and orange liqueur combined with iced tea. It's honestly so good that all you have to do is pour it over ice in a glass and it would be perfect that way.
I wanted to truly celebrate the end of school so I added in our Lemonade Recipe with fresh fruit to the Teagarita. I was inspired by our Strawberry Punch to use the mulled fruit in these mixed drinks. It was like sipping on Summer in a glass. Sweet and refreshing! My favorite!
We enjoyed our Lemonade Teagaritas Mixed Drinks while nibbling on my Chick Pea Crostini and Caprese Kabobs. It was the perfect evening to trade stories that no one would actually believe happened. Oh, the books we could write!
