2 Tbs fresh orange juice ( I omitted cause I didn't have any)
2 Tbs Tequila
2 Tbs Grand Marnier
Combine Sugar, lime juice, water, lemon juice and orange juice in a small sauce pan over medium heat. Cook, stirring until sugar dissolves. (NOTE: I just put everything into a bowl and stirred till sugar dissolved...hubby was using the stove top) Once cool transfer to a blender with tequila, Grand Marnier, and lime wedge and process until smooth. (this is why theirs looks so green, I am assuming. I didn't blend, rather I zested the lime into the liquid and stirred. Turned out fantastic!)
Pour into cups or molds and insert sticks. Freeze till hard. Garnish with kosher salt and enjoy!
I am not a heat lovin' kind of girl. I prefer a nice cool breeze and a temperature of about 22*C. I am a Canadian after all...you know polar bears and igloos and all.
We aren't known for our heat waves and tropical climate. We experience these heat waves only a few times in the summer thankfully, but as I get older it seems harder to take. I hate having days on end that I don't get anything done cause I feel like I am melting. Dripping sweat is not a pleasant feeling. I get grouchy quite frankly. Wouldn't you?
Yet in the middle this little heat wave that we are experiencing, I hear people telling me to suck it up and enjoy it. Honestly, I wonder why these people have not yet moved on to more tropical places if they enjoy this sort of weather. But don't worry. I get to return the favour when they start to whine about the cold temps in the winter. Canada is known to get a little cold in our near record breaking long winters.
