My dad was out of town for the weekend which automatically meant girls night for mom and me. I came home from the zoo sweaty and tired, but ready to drink some caffeine for a night of dancing with the mama unit. It was the first 100+ day in Atlanta and I was happily relieved when my mom, slouched in the sunroom with a fan in front of her face, welcomed me with: 

"Do you mind if we just make margaritas and stay in tonight?"

Ab. So. Lutely. 
(Serves 2-3)

6 oz key lime juice
2 oz fresh lime juice
1/2 c sugar (dissolved in lime juices)
1/4 c water
6 oz cointreau
10-12 oz tequila

Line rim with lime juice and twist in crushed rock salt
Mix ingredients, pour, and enjoy!
We drank these babies while planning my cousin Leslie's bridal shower. It was a perfectly relaxing Saturday night. Note: When we say "Serves 2-3" we actually mean "Serves 4-6 cups. Because really, who just drinks 1 cup?

It should also be noted that Leslie is neither a mother, pregnant, or engaged to her cousin. Success!
