M: Mini Margaritas

Fort Collins is becoming known as the Napa Valley of microbrews, but for my money, it's hard to beat a good margarita. However, as I am increasingly becoming a lightweight/cheap date, I can't drink a whole one anymore. That's why I appreciate that one of my favorite Mexican restaurants, known locally as The Rio, offers extremely tasty mini margs. The restaurant also has one of the best patios around for summer chillaxin.

I frequently agree with the famous quote attributed to Oscar Wilde--"Everything in moderation, including moderation."--but where tequila is concerned, believe me, I know who's boss.

How mini is it? Difficult to tell from your photo in which it looks gorgeous. Me, I like lemoncello as made by my Italian neighbour.

Margaritas-icy-are one of the few drinks that I like. I prefer the original, but any berry is good too.

I would like to thank you so much for stopping by my blog//:) As for Margaritas now I am in the mood, but I do not have the stuff to make one. What a great choice for M.

The photo doesn't look very mini, but it does look very yummy!

My father used to quote, 'everything in moderation' as I was growing up. I didn't understand it at the time, but now see the sense of the thought behind the words. Keep blogging!

I'd need two of those. HA- so I guess a regular sized one would do me well! :)

Love the photos!

I like the idea of mini-margaritas too. I don't order a regular size anymore because it's too much...and I drink it anyway.
