But then we moved a little further away, and our kids started going to school, and Jorden started working later hours……and the frequent visits to our little restaurant became much less frequent. And then one day Jorden came home and told me it had closed… for good! I couldn’t help but feel somehow responsible….(had our frequent visits been keeping them afloat??)
(The answer, in case you’re wondering, is no.) And the reality, in case you’re wondering, is that we still have plenty of Mexican restaurants to choose from! None are as quaint and homey as our old Guadalupe, but as long as they make good guac and a mean margarita, I’m totally on board! And for the times when life gets in the way of us frequenting one of said restaurants, I made up a mean margarita recipe that we can enjoy at home! And by WE, I mean YOU, too!!
3 oz. tequila
2 oz. fresh lime juice
2 oz. pomegranate juice blend (100% juice)
1 oz. triple sec
1 oz. agave nectar
Mix all ingredients together and enjoy! Store extra in freezer (as if you will have any extra……!)
Thanks for taking a peek inside my Lemon Tree Dwelling…
I hope you feel right at home!
