There are things happening people!! Happy Cinco de Mayo friends! Today we are talking about beverages! The adult kind with a little bit of lime. Yep you got it! Homemade margaritas. So I think many of you are aware that I work in retail… & if we are to be 100% honest… retail hours suck. I love the flexibility of my job but I hate the holiday hours, working on the weekends, & not seeing my family for Christmas for the past 5 years.
So my friend, & fellow retail worker/east coast originator, Bryan & I have been working on a little project help relieve us of our terrible work schedules. Our project is involving some soy wax, a lot of sent testing & mixing, & a lot of market research. Wondering what we’ve been working on? Well if you haven’t put the clues together you are just going to have to wait. We aren’t 100% ready yet to let out our little secret but in the next few weeks I will let you all know.
Today we are here to talk about Bryan & my favorite beverage while we are working on our project. When we worked together a few years back we would spend every other Wednesday after work at happy hour at an amazing Mexican restaurant in Sherman Oaks, CA, Casa Vega. If you are ever in LA take the trip over the hill to try it! It is a Los Angeles landmark & has been around since 1956 bringing in celebrities & locals alike.
When Bryan & I first started talking about our project we began over a few of these beautiful little things & our ideas started sparking to life. We decided we wanted to make our brain storming session it a fun night so we ran to the grocery store, walked pass the margarita mix, & straight to produce section. We were wanted a nice fresh drink instead of a sugar filled syrup. Making the margaritas fresh brings out the flavor of the tequila & makes you sip on it rather than, well pounding it.
Which you will thank me for in the morning.
Try these out & let me know how you think. I for sure know I will be having one tonight.
