This is the first official post!! “It’s been 84 years...”
Name that movie?
Titanic. C’mon. Oh God, are you too young you haven’t seen Titanic? Leo was a fox!
It’s been 5 years. And to be honest, at that point, the blog felt more like a chore and less like a hobby. So I stopped. It’s not to say I stopped cooking, but I stopped putting everyone on pause at the dinner table so I could snap some photos in the best light. So I took a breather.
But now: we’re in quarantine. And have been for two months. And slowly but surely, time emerged for old hobbies and old habits. So, The Messie Kitchen is back.
And if that doesn’t deserve a drink, I don’t know what does.
Coconut Lime Margaritas
3/4 Cup Coconut Tequila (I used 1800 brand)
1 (15 oz) can Cream of Coconut
1/2 cup Lime Juice
1 cup Ice
1/2 cup Shredded Coconut Flakes (optional)
Honey, for garnish
Lime, for garnish
2. Add tequila, cream of coconut, lime juice, and ice to a blender. Blend until smooth.
3. If using toasted coconut, dip glass in honey and then dip into layer of shredded coconut.
4. Garnish with a lime and serve margaritas over ice. Enjoy!
