Question of the Week: Since it's Cinco de Mayo weekend here, let's have a fun question this week! What's your favorite beverage to drink while reading?

I tend to drink a ton of coffee (which explains the numerous trips to the bathroom) and then later on in the day, I switch to Diet Pepsi Caffeine Free.  Not very exciting, I know. But when it comes to alcohol, I 'm a light weight. I drink 1 or 2 drinks and I'm ready for a nap. Okay...honestly, I can ALWAYS take a nap, lol. But alcohol makes it harder to resist the sheets in my bed.

However, when I do drink, I prefer a mixed beverage--not beer. I never developed the taste buds for Hops and Barley. For a shot, I prefer tequila...and it has to be Patron--

And in celebration of Cinco de Mayo, I leave with you with a recipe that uses this delicious beverage!

Cinco de Mayo and Patron-Corona Margaritas…


· 1 (12 ounce) can frozen limeade concentrate (semi-thawed)

· 12 fluid ounces Patron Silver tequila

· 6 fluid ounces 7-up or diet 7-up

· 6 fluid ounces cold water (or use 12 fl.oz. Seven-Up or water)

· 12 fluid ounces Corona beer

· ice (lots of ice!)

· 1 lime (cut into wedges)


1.  Pour the limeade, tequila, Seven-Up, water and beer into a large glass pitcher; stir with a long-handled spoon until completely blended and the frozen limeade has completely melted.

2.  Add in lots of ice.

3.  Adjust with extra water if the mixture is too sweet.

4.  Top each glass with a lime wedge on the end.

And because some of you ladies say that you LURVE the pics I post-I couldn't help but post some of my fave Latino Man. Although he is attatched (that is pics of Ricky and his boyfriend on the beach, drool), he is still so sexy to me. In fact, I am listening to him sing to me via YouTube...sigh...Shake that bon bon, Ricky Martin.



  1. Yum and Yum!!! *grins* Thanks for that!! I'm usless when alcohol is involved so I avoid it when reading too. A cuppa is good enough for me. LOL

    1. Madame D~

      I forgot to say that my fave is Peach daqari (spelled wrong) with Spiced Rum...using real pieces of peach....
      Have a great weekend

  2. I'm into run now but i'll take a sot of RM anytime

    1. Braine~
      thanks for stopping by...I prefer to spend my time with Captain Morgan, lol...spiced rum.
      And if RM should care to join me with his Boyfriend? You'd hear no complaints from me, lol.
      Have a great weekend.

  3. To be honest when I start a new book I very rarely move from where ever I curled up with it to go in search of beverages, food or the loo. LOL. Not a fan of the alcohol, but thanks for man candy!! *winks*

    1. Marie-
      thanks for stopping by and commenting. I don't like to move either when I get comfy with a great book. But it never fails...I'm right at a **ahem**key part, and the kids want or need something. GAH
      Have a great weekend.

  4. Woof. Patron would have me nekkid in a heartbeat. I get WWILD and crazy on Tequila. Strange things happen. I don't know how, but I spontaneously remember them the next day. o.O

  5. This looks fantastic, and the pics of Ricky Martin are oolala

  6. Lol yeah alcohol will do that to you. And the only thing I hate about drinking anything while reading are the trips to the bathroom! >.< Lol I'll have to try out your recipe one day, it sounds great!

    Thanks for stopping by, Have a great weekend! :D

  7. Patron puts me on my, but that is an awesome choice and thanks for the recipe!

    mine -

  8. Hi sweetie. Thanks for the recipe and bringing back Livin' la Vida Loca memories. Ricky Martin can shake is bon, bon anytime for me. Really I do not stalk your blog for the yummy man candy pics you post. Have a nice weekend babe.

    I am a wine girl. That is all I can handle now a days. Unless I am out dancing then it is beer or screwdrivers...lounging in the pool then it is strawberry daiquiris or pina coladas or girls night out for dinner is a Dirty Martini or 2, or 3 then they have to take me home or hubby comes and gets me. Yeah love those darn Diry Matinis but just can not have one.


I love getting comments...tell me what you thought of my post!
