Italian Margarita


It's been a long day. The sun is on its descent and you know what that means. It's time to sit back....take a breather and relax a moment before the call to make dinner starts pulling at you. You've dealt with the good, the bad and the ugly today. You not only deserve....but you need that... "me" time. Of course that includes a little cocktail. Let's make it special. A little something new, yet still refreshing. With enough of a kick to relieve a bit of that weight off your shoulders. Who knows...if you have enough...it just might relieve so much weight that you become light on your feet and dance the night away.

(oh...and just so you know....the amounts below are way too small. I say get shot glass thats a bit bigger than an ounce....1 1/2? 2? and pretend it's an ounce and go for it!)

1 oz amaretto
2 oz sweet and sour mix
1/2 oz tequila
1/2 oz orange liquor

Combine and serve over ice.

If you wanna tone it down a bit....add 1 oz of sprite or club soda.

Oh man I love amaretto and I am always looking for different drinks to add it to! This sounds like it might just have to be my birthday drink :)

Gorgeous, and so creative! You are right, I deserve one (several) and will use a bigger shot glass (tumbler).
I love all things Italian.. ☺

Oh, I'm in! I'll use my little measuring glass that looks like a giant shot glass, that should be just about right ;)
