Poor Man’s Margaritas

Odwalla Summertime Lime JuiceTonight we enjoyed a few “Poor Man’s Margaritas”, a recipe I picked up from my buddies Chris and Ron a couple years ago at the Gnomedex conference.

The recipe is quite simple:

  • Good tequila (tonight I had Cazadores)
  • Odwalla’s Summertime Lime Juice

Use whatever ratio you’re comfortable with. Voila, instant margarita.

It’s not really “poor” in the sense that it’s cheap, but you can make them anywhere. This juice from Odwalla is only made in the summer, so hurry out and try some!

  • AOL Sports looks interesting because they show which commercials were shown by quarter

GM Day at Yahoo!

VideoJug (How to Make a Mojito)

VideoJug — “Life Explained. On Film.” — is a new site full of how-to videos in categories like food, health, pets, leisure and so on. It looks like the bulk of the videos are produced by VideoJug, but they also have the ability to submit your own. The topics are pretty varied from How to Float a Ping Pong Ball in the Air to How to be the Perfect Girlfriend.

Here’s a great example which shows how to make a mojito (if the video doesn’t show, here’s an alternate link):
