Finishing up the last sections of my photography eBook is taken longer than I anticipated. Thankfully my amiga “The Margarita Queen” Vianney, of Sweet Life, has kindly offer to share a treat with us today. I love calling Vianney the “Queen” of margaritas, because she seriously is. Though her blog has so so many delicious recipes, it is her margarita concoctions that are out of this world. What a better way to wipe away the mid-week blues than with one of Vianney’s margaritas! Take it away Vianney:)
Hola! I am Vianney from Sweet Life and I am thrilled to be sharing this post on my good friend Nancy’s blog today. We were blessed to have a wonderful peach season this year in Texas and I wanted to share a flavor that held true meaning in my life. The sweet taste of peach evokes my childhood, reminds me of the first time I took my kids peach picking with their papi (grandfather) and were used in the first dessert I baked for my new husband (mi carino). A true Texas peach is sweet, but beefy and makes you smile all day. I’ve kicked up my favorite flavor with a splash of tequila for an unexpected dinner date~ Enjoy!
I love to create dishes in my kitchen that remind me of my childhood. A tasty moment spent with family captured on a plate, it’s what I strive to feed my children dinner after dinner. As we enjoy our food I try the best I can to describe my childhood memory, help them to visualize my past and hope they carry on my favorite flavors with them as they grow. These are the dishes I loving share with them. On the days when I crave my childhood energy and wake up feeling a little past my actual years I always seem to crave peaches. Peaches taste like summer; a summer either spent eating raspas or ice cream a chin full of sugary drizzle slowly making its way down your neck. I love peaches. Last week my daughters’ spent the weekend at their aunt’s house for a bit of last minute summer fun. I was alone at home only with mi carino. Mi carino knew I was kind of bummed with the lack of noise in the house and he suggested we pick up a movie, head over to a local joint and order up a few juicy burgers; an at home date night. I was all in! We need margaritas I screamed; yes I get pretty excited for margaritas! I ran to the kitchen to see what fruit my girls had not yet devoured and spotted peaches. Yes! The perfect way to end the summer, sweet peach juice spiked with tequila, mi carino and juicy burger dribbles slowly making its way down my chin. A new memory added to my Sweet Life. I love peaches!
