Happy Friday lovely people!
I, for one, feel as if this week disappeared in the blink of an eye. I guess being well and truly back in the regular school / activities / sport routine had something to do with it. And the kids’ lack of willingness to get up this morning certainly signalled that we had arrived at the end of the school week.
But they are most excited about the weekend! We have gymnastics and school shoe shopping on the agenda tomorrow morning, and have friends coming for dinner tomorrow night. Hopefully we can fit in a family hike on Sunday, or at least something outdoors to make the most of the lingering warm weather.
But tonight – Friday night! We have an impromptu family catch-up to watch the Brumbies and enjoy a nice dinner together. And, well for no other reason than it is Friday, I suspect a cocktail might make an appearance.
Something like this perhaps?
A pomegranate margarita – that we served at a family dinner a little while ago when Mexican was on the menu and margaritas seemed to be a fitting accompaniment. Made simply with tequila, Cointreau, pomegranate juice, lime cordial and water – served over ice with fresh lime wedges.
And because I didn’t want to be stuck making individual drinks all evening, I made a big jug in advance and kept it in the fridge until it was time to serve.
Tequila is by no means my favourite (thanks, most likely, to overindulging when was 18) but combined with the pomegranate juice and water – the result was a very ‘easy’ cocktail to drink.
Cheers to the weekend!
