Midnight Margaritas and Give Away.

As I said in my last post I just love midnight feasts one of my all time favourite films of the season (or all year round come to that) is Practical Magic. In that film midnight feasts take on a whole new look via Midnight Margarita's.


Personally I think both feasts or margaritas seem a perfect 
accompaniment to a dark bewitching midnight hour.

Classic Margarita

Ingredients

Tequilla 
Cointreau 
Lime Lemon Juice 
Fine Granular Sea Salt

Preparation method

  1. Add two measures of Tequilla, one of Cointreau and one of lime juice into the cocktail shaker and shake over crushed ice.
  2. Prepare the glass by rubbing the rim with a wedge of fresh lime and then dipping the rim into a saucer, shallowly filled with granular sea salt.
  3. Strain the mixture from the shaker into the glass and serve.


    I'm combining this post with two blog parties, Marfi at Incipient Wings Halloween Humpday and Magaly at Pagan Culture All Hallows Grim.
    I've also made a little give away of a Tigers Eye and Black Agate Star Necklace.

     The give away is open to all and will close on Saturday the 
    19th of October 2013 at Midnight.

  6. Tiger's eye has always been my favorite, so I will cross fingers and paws.
    Once upon a time we had Practical Magic parties and they are still so much fun to revisit online.
    That also introduced me to Alice Hoffman and I have now read most of her books.
