It’s hard not to love Cinco de Mayo, no matter what your heritage. It’s always a good time!
With the holiday quickly approaching, I am thinking about ways to celebrate, so I decided to create a countdown to Cinco de Mayo on the PD blog! I love Mexican food and a good reason to have people over for some good eats. First things first:
Let’s talk Margaritas.
I have conflicting thoughts about margaritas as a dietitian. The sticky, sweet taste of most restaurants’ margaritas come from sour mix and make me want to hurl. The thought of sipping on an all-natural skinny margarita with lime juice outside in the sun makes me want to do a hurkie, scream and drop to the floor (cheerleaders, am I right?). These two types of margaritas truly personify beauty and the beast in my mind.
I’m going to take a minute to perfect the “skinny” margarita and make it truly PD-approved. Pantry Doctor Skinny Margaritas: the secret to getting a fresh-tasting skinny margarita is to skip the Cointreau/orange liqueur, syrups and sweeteners altogether and use fresh oranges and lime. The difference is out of this world!
