grapefruit margarita

my mom basically taught me to play the lottery.

during the spring of 6th grade,
it was time for our middle school's ASB elections.
for some reason i really wanted to run for secretary
but everyone knew that only the 7th graders,
who would soon be the big bad super cool 8th graders,
could secure these highly esteemed positions on campus.

i must have somehow mentioned the situation to my mom....
you know what advice she gave me??

you should run! 
SOMEONE has to win!
it might as well be you!

and you know what...
that advice might as well be convincing you to 
buy a powerball ticket next time the jackpot gets big.
because SOMEONE is going to win! 
why not believe it's going to be you???

good advice, right?

what my mom really taught me: believe in yourself
my translation: play the lottery

it's a loose connection, i know :)

(yes, i was elected secretary)

sugar for the rim
pink or ruby red grapefruit
1/4 cup grapefruit juice
1 tablespoon agave nectar
2 tablespoons triple sec
1/4 cup reposado tequila
splash of coconut water

makes 1 cocktail
(you will want to make more than one)


1. pour thin layer of sugar on a small plate.
rub grapefruit wedge around the rim of your glass, 
and roll in the sugar to coat. set aside.

2. put the grapefruit segments into the bottom of prepared glass and fill with ice.
add remaining ingredients and stir. serve immediately.

marcy gave this bevy her stamp of approval.
