Monday’s have always gotten a bad rap. People never want Sunday to stop, dreading the Monday that follows. Early in my career I was told by a very smart woman when planning long weekends ALWAYS take a Monday over a Friday. People expect less on Mondays, Friday’s everyone is in a rush to get work done before the weekend. The advice was perfect and has led to many a relaxing and worry free Monday off from work.
That advice may or may not be directly tied to Margarita Monday? The thrill of a perfect margarita at 3pm when you are normally at work, is like a mini-vacation in itself.
When Ocean Spray reached out to me about their new Citrus 100% juice blends that included a killer margarita recipe I knew it was for me! Who doesn’t like a tasty tropical margarita?
I’ve been playing around with the flavors myself over the weekend and coming up with my own creations but nothing beats out the taste of a great salted rim margarita. And their own tropical margarita is da BOMB! Below is quick video of how to make it:
I was sent 2 citrus 100% juices to try. The first was a Tangerine Orange and the second was Mango Pineapple.
I really thought on first glance the Tangerine would be my favorite but the Mango flavor ended up winning in the end! They are the perfect shake up from traditional juices and have the taste of summer. My kids tried them out as well! They liked the Tangerine the best.
They also have an entire section of their website dedicated to kitchen creations.. Who knew you could make shrimp tacos with juice? I can’t wait to try out a few of these tasty meals.
I was most excited about the Sparkling Citrus Tangerine. I’ve been into all the sparkling waters I can find lately. This was a sweet change-up from the traditional waters with 70% real fruit juice and no added sugar it was a sparkling surprise! I tangy tangerine flavor with the perfect crisp finish. I drank these all by myself without offering anyone a taste 😉
And if you are in Syracuse for the GREAT NEW YORK STATE FAIR be sure to find the Ocean Spray mobile tasting truck that has been travelling the country to let people try the great new flavors of Ocean Spray.
