Phoenix Sunset Margarita
In two weeks, it’ll be back to school time here in the Love Bakes Good Cakes house. It’s bittersweet knowing that Summer is coming to an end and schedules will become more rigid. Although I think structure is good, having the freedom to just “live” has been nice … that, and sleeping in ’til 7 am! 🙂
One of the reasons we hate to see Summer go is, our pool should be full of water by this weekend – although Summer will be over soon, we will have plenty of sunshine and warm days here in Phoenix to enjoy it for awhile!
I was recently telling Brian that I am looking forward to watching the sunsets in the evening from the pool – if you’ve never been to Arizona, we have the most amazing sunsets – EVER! I wanted to take those sunsets as an inspiration for a new drink! Some of y’all may remember my Arizona Sunset drink – it’s fruity and kid-friendly … obviously, the Phoenix Sunset Margarita is not kid-friendly! 😛
