So…Christmas is a week from today. I got the Bee Dubyas** together to discuss holiday traditions in the Barron family. I suspect the Moonstruck Mates might also use this recipe that Quin Kincaid Tate (wife of country superstar Deacon Tate, cousin to the Barrons whose love story is told in THE COWBOY’S CHRISTMAS PROPOSITION) shared with the Bee Dubyas. Quin said she might not be much of a cook but she can dang sure mix a drink. The former Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper adds, “Caveat! Don’t drink and drive, y’all!”
If you have one of those families, you might lay in the supplies so you can have a “White Christmas” too. 😉 Look, there’s even a YouTube video to see how it’s done. 😆
14-oz. can of coconut milk or coconut cream (for sweeter taste)
12 oz. silver tequila
1/2 cup lime juice
8 oz. triple sec
2 cups of ice
1/2 cup of mint (garnish)
1 lime, sliced (garnish)
Lime wedge (for rimming glass)
Sugar (for rimming glass)
Mix coconut milk, tequila, triple sec, lime juice and ice in a blender.
Rim glasses with lime wedge, then dip in sugar.
Pour mixture into rimmed glasses.
Garnish with lime and cranberries
**Bee Dubyas are the Barron Wives…the nickname coined by the Tate cousins as the Barron Boys started falling for their cowgirls.
Have a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from the Barrons, Tates, Wolves, and Sade’s Scoobie Gang.
