Since Bethenny already has the Skinny Girl Margarita covered and we all know I’m no skinny girl anyways, I thought I’d create a Lazy Girl Margarita for the rest of us.

I also celebrated Cinco de Mayo with a MASSIVE Taco Salad. It was piled with black beans, chicken, salsa, guacamole and cheese. I think there might have been lettuce on it, but I’m not sure.IMG_0370 (800x600)My new peep Karla keeps swearing to me that giving up cheese will change my life. I can’t say I’m not thinking about it. I also can’t say I didn’t eat a ton of it today… IMG_0372 (800x600)

Now I’m off to enjoy my Lazy Girl Margarita with the most interesting man in the world. dos equis ad

    HAHA That is hilarious. I love it. HAHA I wonder how many other drinks can be mixed with Cytomax, Gatorade or other sports drinks. There must be a market for that somewhere! :)

    give up cheese or all dairy? I could do the cheese, but never the yogurt and ice cream.
    Tequila and fresca is a good combo too:)

  3. says

    I made my own variation of a margarita tonight too! We did have tequila but no triple sec so I improvised with coconut rum. Just as delicious! Happy cinco de mayo!!

    Isnt drinking electrolytes+ alcohol bad for your liver? For some reason i think I have heard that before

  5. Laura @ Backstag Pass says

    Love this recipe – how awesome! You’re my hero, for realz.
    Vitamin water zero is my go-to mixer for vodka cocktails. Of course it would make a great margarita!

  6. Jill says

    Love that margarita. It looks so inviting, in the pretty glass with the salt and lime. Since I don’t NEED the sugary mixer (probably don’t NEED the tequila either, but that’s another story), I made my drink with ice-cold Fresca, lime juice and tequila. I have also been known to use a lemon/lime Nuun tablet instead of the Fresca.
