“I Ain’t Mad At Ya, Margarita”

I realize there are so many things grammatically and otherwise wrong with saying “I ain’t mad at ya”.  My mom was not a fan of “ain’t” and she used to have a little ditty she would make us sing when we were kids any time we tried to use that word.  “Ain’t ain’t a word and I ain’t gonna use it.”  Well, sorry, Mom, it only seems fitting to use with this trimmed down version of the most deliciosa bebida of the sacred Cinco de Mayo.  I am going on a much needed beach trip with my  sister in t-minus 6 days, so I need all the skinny I can get from now to then, but I don’t have the willpower to pass up a margarita on Cinco and for that I am thankful for this calorie-friendly recipe and so is my waistline and in return I am not currently experiencing any feelings of discontent with you, Margarita!

I Ain’t Mad At Ya Margarita

  • 3 packets (2 quart packets) lime margarita drink mix (I found mine in the Great Value brand at Walmart)
  • 1 gallon water
  • 1/4- 1/2 cup Nellie & Joe’s Famous Key Lime Juice
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • Juice of 1/2 navel orange
  • Juice of 1/2 large lemon
  • 1 1/2 cups Tequila Reserva 1800 Silver 100% Agave Tequila
  • Orange, lime & lemon slices

Combine drink mix and water and stir to combine.  Add Key Lime Juice, lime, orange and lemon juice and stir to combine.  Adjust taste as needed with lime/lemon juice.  Add tequila and stir to combine.  Pour into a decorative glass pitcher (the one pictured was found at Walmart)  and add fruit slices.  Add crushed ice to glasses and pour in margarita mixture.  Garnish a festive straw with a kumquat or other colorful fruit slice and ENJOY!!!!!
