2012 Blogger Get Together III

Larry not only wants us to leave Almost Heaven South with a full belly, new friendships forged but also with more knowledge than we had when we arrived.

Now I have to tell you this and this is the honest truth.  Larry makes THE BEST MARGARITA I HAVE EVER TASTED! 

It didn't take much arm twisting to talk Larry into teaching us his secret.  Now I'm going to share his special recipe with you.  

This is Larry's Margarita Mix of choice.  You can't find it at your local grocers but you can buy it at Mayson's website in a liter bottle. 

He showed us his little drink mix helper.

This is Larry's tequila of choice.  He explained that finding a tequila that had 100% agave was the key.

To get that just "right" blend he added two cans of Sprite.  He doesn't like diet Sprite, seriously if you're going to have a few, do you really believe the word "diet" is applicable?  Just sayin'...

Another important key is using just a dash or two of powdered egg white.  Not real egg white, "powdered" because it gives the Margarita a little frothiness and the powdered egg white has a little, tiny bit of sweetness.   Pour the liquid in the blender, add the powdered egg white, give the blender a quick pulse, salt and  ice those glasses kids and you're ready to rock-n-roll!

After we wrapped our fingers around another Margarita our heads around all of that knowledge, our kind instructor took us on a boat ride at dusk.

Even his vicious attack friendly pooch, Sweetie, joined us.

Bev and Coco.


Time to head in, we were out of Margaritas.

So another East Tennessee Blogger Get Together for the books boys and girls.  This leaves the really big question, what do we cook next year?

I'm so glad you got the photos and tips on Larry's famous margaritas. My photographer was out enjoying a boat ride and took his camera with him, so I didn't get one shot.

I'm off to link this to my post. We sure did have a great time. It will be hard to top next year!

It all just keeps getting better and better! What a fun group! If anyone is on the fence about coming next year... Worth every mile!

And again, great job as cooks! I am still bragging it up around the neighborhood and you may see us giving a Kansas version sometime this summer... And that's about the best compliment I can give!

So glad that you detailed Larry's recipe. The boat ride was so much fun. How about a pulled pork contest next year?

Chris said...

Yes, that is the huge question....what to do next year!

Y'all definitely raised the bar.
