Junk is So Relative.


Now that the last day of the greatest month has arrived, I think it’s safe to tell you, you’ve almost survived National Junk Food Month. That’s right, February is all about the junk. Moreover, my birthday was National Tortilla Chip Day, which explains a lot.

Now, if you think about it, we did our part with the champagne chocolate. So that’s a start. But it doesn’t really cover my other favorite junk food group. Beverages.

So here’s my new favorite in all its glory.

The Beergarita.

If you don’t know about Jenny’s drink that’s sweeping the nation, you better get on board. It’s easy to make. It freaking rocked the Oscar hizzy on Sunday. And it’s much better served with ice. We ran out on Sunday, although by the time the ice vanished, I’m not sure most noticed. BTW, I can only handle one. I’d say, unless you want people swan diving off your funiture (Marcia), cut them off at three.

Jenny’s (Yeeeeehaw Ya’ll) Beergarita

1 can Lime juice frozen concentrate (Limeade)
1 of the above can’s full of Tequila
1⁄2 (more or less) of the Lime juice can of Triple Sec
1 of the lime juice can’s of 7-Up
1 bottle of Corona

Mix above all together, serve over ice and get lit.

Next month, to counterbalance all this decadence, we’re spotlighting salads. But just in case you’re not ready to give up the junk, you have 24 hours. Go.

Also, on a completely different healthy habits note, Lindsey who said “I’m totally intersted in that book” won it. You go Lindsey. Email me at helloqueso at gmail dot com and you can be interested in it and own it. We’re making dreams come true around here.

    Holy smokes! I've been going on and on about the virtue of mixing hard liquors with beer since my last trip to Salt Lake (where the only way to make the 1% beer they sell palatable is to make it into a boilermaker)This beergarita thing could be the new hello kitty or ugg boots or having 2 dogs of the same breed. I wish I could buy stock in it.

    Beergaritas are good, but I prefer the less harsh Hop Skip and Go Nakeds, as perfected by Wally…it's the same, but with vodka and no Triple Sec. It's delicioso!Salad Month?! Yum! I love salads!! As long as they don't involve jello, vegetables, and marshmallows…and that's not really salad.

    The scientist in me immediately started planning a shopping trip for LimeAid on my way home. But I must ask….the large can or the small can? Personally, I'm planning on the large.

  4. Sara says:

    That sounds so good right now….

  5. Cafe Johnsonia says:

    Yay! I'm so happy I won! Thanks!

  6. Jenny says:

    Oh my Got, I am so relieved.The paranoid part of me (read:all of me) was worried that you drank it, blacked out and woke up in jail with your head shaved.

  7. kim says:

    The beergaritas are for real? I thought they were just a Jenny myth. Now I'm gonna have to try them.

  8. Bones says:

    yum.. one of these would go down so smooth while sitting on the side of a lake watching grown men compete for millions by catching bass.

  9. Girl con Queso says:

    Jenny, you do know that happened, right?Bones, I'd have to be seriously beergaritaed to watch people fish.Doc, If I did make this with the large can I can guarantee you I'd either be in jail or in hell (aka watching old men fish for bass).

  10. Girl con Queso says:

    Oh and SZ, Wally's Hop Skip and Go Nakeds combine tequilla, beer AND vodka? No wonder I don't remember 2001.

  11. Marmite Breath says:

    I think I'm going to wait for warmer weather to try the Beergaritas–they sound like they'd be awesome when you're sitting on the patio of an evening.

  12. Sabrina says:

    Wow. I am seriously salivating after reading the Beergarita recipe. Now the task is finding all the ingredients here in Ireland. . .

  13. Super Zoe says:

    GcQ, there is no tequila in the hop and skips! Just healthy vodka, limeade and beer…so refreshing!

  14. Julie Pippert says:

    So…better than a real, fresh mojito?

  15. Shannon says:

    Nationa Junk Food Month? Oh Geez, I missed it. I could have done so much more. The perfect excuse to bring home Krispy Kremes and Cheese in a can.
