My friend Courtney over at Coco Cooks is a long time fan of the Real Housewives. While I am just getting into this year I can see how it can be totally addicting. I already wish it was on more than once during the week!!! Right now we are into the Real Housewives of New Jersey but just finished out the Real Housewives of NYC. Which one has been my favorite so far? Hard to say. You some how get attached to each one for a different reason.

Anyway on with my purpose here…Courtney decided to host a Real Housewives Cocktail Contest.

This drink is for Tamra from The Real Housewives of Orange County. Seeing as her husband has started up a tequila business (Tequila El Conde Azul) I thought this recipe would be perfect to showcase their tequila!!!



2 parts of Tequila El Conde Azul Blanco (or your favorite tequila)
1 part Limoncello (homemade preferably, thanks Jenn!!!)
3 parts of your favorite margarita mix
squeeze of lime

Shake all ingredients and serve over ice.

This is delicious with a salt rim or not. But should be enjoyed on a hot summer day either on the beach or by the pool! Bartender optional but highly recommended!

You want to join in you say? All you need to do is to come up with your best drink reflecting your favorite character from any Real Housewives series. Deadline is June 20! Check out all the rules here.

Now get mixing!!!

As Always…

Happy Entertaining!!!

Oh yum! I love the NJ one. Such tacky ladies, for sure. Love the Mom who says she isn't pushing her kid to be in show biz when that's all you see her doing!

Whoa. Limoncello really packs a punch and I love the flavor so know this is tasty. Unfortunately, we are not watchers...we get our fill of the real McCoy in our neck of the woods. Causes indigestion ;) Of course I could wash it down with a sip of your drink!
