I’d like to say that despite what you see and read on my blog, I am not a lush.
Even if my mom called me one on the phone last night.
She was joking, I swear.
But then there are times when I seriously wonder, like when I get an email from the lovely folks over at Mar-GO-Rita asking me if I want to try review ther all-natural margaritas made with agave wine, a smoother, lighter form of tequila fermented from the agave plant.
What? Do I look like some party hardy, 20-something girl suped up on booze because she doesn’t know where her life is going and it’s the only way she knows how to cope with her conflicting feelings? Is that why you emailed me? Huh? To take advantage of an emotional, boozy blogger?
That was my first reaction, because clearly I’m a drama queen.
But then I calmed down.
Sure, send it on over.
At first glance, these on-the-go drinks are quite an oxymoron.
Drinking on the go? Doesn’t seem like such a good idea (if you know what I mean).
But if you look at these pouches more as a margarita juice box, a whole new realm of adulthood possibilities blossom before you. Everywhere little kids are able to bring juice boxes, you, as a grown, of-age adult, should be able to bring your margarita juice boxes. You’re sure to one up those crumbsnatchers on the playground.
Or, the beach. The park. The local pool. The McDonalds playplace. Your choice.
Or, take the more mature route and sip one while laying on the couch watching a rated R movie or reading a racy novel titled “Claimed by the Highland Warrior” in bed at night. Simply freeze, squeeze and perhaps add some blood orange juice to your glass for an extra kick of citrus while you lazily entertain your salacious adult interests.
Trust me when I say both are quite delicious – not too strong, not too light.
Especially when served with sweet potato hashbrowns + a veggie burger salad.
A perfect Tuesday night after dinner drink, if you ask me.
And when your mom calls you on the phone and jokes that you’re a lush after a weekend of beer, tell the woman who birthed you that she did not raise an emotional boozy blogger but rather a mature, young person who knows how to drink responsibly.
Then, hang up and drink up. Nobody turns down free booze.
