Rockin’ Frog Margarita

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Necessity being the mother of invention and all that, and faced with a lack of enough limes to create our standard take on the excellent house margarita from Maria’s in Santa Fe, we decided to use a tangerine instead…and my, that’s a drink worthy of the name Rockin’ Frog!

So here’s what we did:

6 oz 1800 Reposado Tequila
Juice of 3 limes and a tangerine, 6 oz
4 oz Bols Triple Sec

Combine and shake, pour over the rocks in salted glasses. Makes 4 normal sized drinks- or 2.5 if you’re on vacation in New Mexico…! The tangerine adds a hint of orange taste, as well as adding a bit of sweetness to cut the tartness of the fresh limes. Anything called a tangerine, mandarin orange or clementine will work, just get one of those nifty hand held juicer dealies and avoid getting seeds in your drink.

If done correctly, you’ll be looking like this fellow in no time!


Told ya I’d find new music out here. Found a nifty second-hand shop in town, The Good Stuff on West San Francisco street in Santa Fe. They have vinyl! Alas, no turntable here yet, but I picked up some “good stuff” to take home.

First up, The Basement Tapes from Bob Dylan and The Band. Amazingly enough, while I’ve heard a lot of these songs – hell, even played one live- I’ve never owned the original record. Any record that can spawn a 300 page book probably deserves a listen, right?

Next, A Vision Shared: A Tribute to Woody Guthrie & Leadbelly featuring takes on some fundamental American music from the likes of Bruce Springsteen, U2, Willie Nelson and Brian Wilson. Great versions of some classic material.
