Jay's Margaritas

1  part Triple Sec
2  parts freshly squeezed lime juice
3  parts tequila

Mix together, pour over ice and shake, strain ice out.  Serve in a margarita glass, salting the rim if desired (moisten rim of glass with a lime half, dip in salt). Important:  Do not use bottled lime juice or artificially sweetened syrups - the taste just isn't the same!!

Goes great with New Mexican food of any sort!  We'll leave the brand names up to your choice.  Did you know that there are at least a hundred different brands of tequila available?



Pina Coladas

A favorite treat while we were living on our sailboat, particularly in the Caribbean where fresh pineapples were cheap and prolific!

Into blender, put:

4 ounces Coco Lopez Cream of Coconut
4 ounces fresh pineapple juice, or 1/2 cup fresh pineapple chunks
3 ounces Bacardi light rum


2 cups ice cubes

Blend until thick and smooth.  Serves 2.
