We are really fortunate to have made some great friends in our street. Two couples who have kids of a similar age – living only a few houses away. Despite all being rather busy with work, and life, we’ve been making a point of catching up when we can. For playdates here and there, or for family-friendly lunches on the weekend when the kids can run amok while the adults catch up on the happenings of late.
This last weekend, we did just that. It was our turn to host, and while I initially thought of putting on a BBQ lunch, I ended up going with a Mexican theme instead. Specifically – pulled pork made in the slow cooker – with tortillas, coleslaw, rice and other trimmings on the side. In fact, it ended up being a rather perfect cosy lunch as temperatures had dropped and the rain fell heavily outside.
And what better way to accompany a Mexican lunch, than with some mango margaritas!
Made with tequila, Cointreau, frozen mango, orange and lime juices – blended to icy perfection.
Served in a lime and salt rimmed glass, and well they were a great start to a wonderful afternoon with friends.
The added bonus being that it was only a short walk home for our guests!
