It’s been well documented that it’s hard for me to walk into a grocery store and only buy the items on my list and today was no different.
I walked into the our local Jewel grocery store to take advantage of the 99¢ pork chops, frozen pizzas and to restock on Diet Dr. Pecker and, for the most part, I was on point.
I had coupons for the pizzas, my DDP’s and some marinade so I was feeling good as I headed to checkout.
But then I saw a display that made me stop in my tracks because I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. Even though I couldn’t find a price I knew I HAD to buy it… for Tammy.
Now I love me some Bud Light Lime, but when I saw it was combined with one of Tammy’s favorite drinks, margaritas, I HAD to get it.
I think Tammy’s had just about all of the margarita varieties made at Mixteca, our favorite Mexican restaurant.
It was because of Tammy’s ’rita love that I HAD to buy the Bud Light Lime: Lime-a-Rita.
I grabbed a 12-pack, dropped it in my cart and was heading to check out when something else caught my eye.
I didn’t have a coupon but they WERE on sale (2/$4) and I figured Tammy might enjoy them with a Lime-a-Rita (or two) tonight, so I HAD to buy them.
When I got home I was a little surprised at the size when I pulled one out (that’s what she said) because I didn’t realize they were 8 ounces instead of 12.
But considering the Lime-a-Rita (8%) contains almost TWICE the amount of alcohol by volume as Bud Light Lime (4.2%), it’s possible that they could be as powerful as what Claudia makes at Mixteca.
Since it’s a Tuesday night, I doubt Tammy is gonna really “Get Her Drank On” like she would at Mixteca.
Tammy once ordered her second margarita then went to the bathroom while they made it. I saw her wobbling as she made her way back to our seat.
Tammy: I think I’m drunk. I should have waited before ordering that second one.
I doubt Tammy will end up like she
did does most of the times we come home from Mixteca, but I who knows?
It’s more “bubbly” than Tammy expected but it’s actually really good.
Not nearly as limey as I thought it would be and not as tart as I was thinking either.
Tammy will be nursing her glass for the next couple of hours so I better go make myself one.
Holy shit, if my husband took a picture of me sleeping/passed out, I don’t think he would live to see another Margarita!
If I were you, I would sleep with one eye open tonite!
Ha – I am totally with you on this GingerSnaap! I sort of worry for J-Wo when Tammy sees this (although I am eager to read about it.) 🙂
That was actually a picture from the night of her 40th birthday surprise party, which is when she was drinking from Big Moe. hahaha…
She hit the bed like a bag of bricks then started drunk texting people while Savannah watched and I took pictures. I had to document the moment… for history.
But she’s a pretty good sport about stuff like that. She let me take her picture after we were working out (we were SO Resolutioners this year) to show how red her face got, so showing a picture of her in a face-down coma-like state wasn’t a big deal. She could have vetoed it before I released it but she didn’t mind. haha…
Red Face Tammy
Yum! I hear wineries are exploring canned wine!
Great, just great… Tammy’s never gonna be sober again!! hahaha…
Cute. I like Tammy…she’s a good sport. I have the same problem after one purple margarita at Rio Grande……my husband’s been fired a couple of times for letting me sneak in that second order (he usually has to drink it). We just discovered the lime-a-rita’s last night…..great in this 105 degree TX heat….
