Cinco de Mayo Margarita Recipe

Posted by | 2 Comments


A little birdie, by the name of Courtney, told me her family uses a margarita recipe from none other than Matthew McConaughey. I figure I trust him with my abs, why not with my drinks? He calls it the Just Keep Livin’ Margarita.


1/2 cup tequila 
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
1/4 cup orange liqueur (recommended: Grand Marnier)
1/4 cup citrus soda (recommended: Orangina)
1/4 cup tonic water
2 tablespoons cranberry juice
Lime wedges, for garnish


Fill 2 lowball glasses with ice. Divide the ingredients, except cranberry juice, evenly among the glasses, and stir to combine. Top each drink with a splash of cranberry juice, garnish with lime wedges, and serve. (Recipe serves 2 margaritas)

Hey! Please allow me to introduce you to my lovely, talented, and warmhearted friend Sara. She leads worship in Long Beach and has just written her own full length worship album. She has a few days left on her kickstarter if you’d like to help support. I mean really… couldn’t we all use more quality worship albums by women?!:) Give her website SaraLindsayMusic a visit and check back to see when her album is available!

Hope you are enjoying the first weekend of spring! Here are a few of my favorite finds for starting off the new season.

1. This candle I’m not crazy about the jar, but the fresh, clean scent more than makes up for it. ($12.99 at World Market)

2. This quote:

“It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. …They went out and happened to things.” Leonardo Da Vinci

3. This recipe: California Quinoa Salad. Easy and delicious. (Best part is- you can get everything in one stop. If that one stop is Trader Joe’s. Also, I’d cut the recipe in half.)

4. This shampoo & conditioner, ($24 at Ulta. Worth every penny.)

5. This print. I saw it and had to have it while working with Kayla Adams (designer of many beautiful things, including olivemepost.) Be warned- the print is an odd size, so framing is a bit tricky.

6. These shelves. Custom built for me by the fireman. You’ll have to snag one of those if you want some;)  (There are online tutorials, too.. If you’re up for a spring DIY)
