National Margarita Day + Meals and fitness

Hi friends! Happy Sunday, and Happy National Margarita Day. I’m never really into those national food holidays… unless they include chocolate or cocktails. ?

The Pilot and I enjoyed this sweet and spicy concoction last night:

Stawberry jalapeno margaritas

Frozen strawberries with a jalapeño-infused honey simple syrup, fresh lime, triple sec, and tequila.

Ingredients

Jalapeno simple syrup

Quite the fiesta in your face. ?

Ingredients

  • For the jalapeño-infused simple syrup: (you will have enough for at least two margaritas, but feel free to double it!)
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 jalapeño, sliced

For the margarita

  • .75 oz (1/2 shot) tequila
  • .75 oz triple sec
  • 1.5 oz jalapeño simple syrup (recipe below)
  • Juice of one lime
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries

Instructions

  1. To make the simple syrup, combine the honey and water in a small pot on high heat. Whisk well as the liquid heats up. Once it starts to bubble, remove from heat, and add the jalapeño. Let cool to room temperature.
  2. Next, blend the margarita ingredients in a high-speed blender until smooth and frothy. Serve immediately and garnish with a slice of lime.

Notes

  • Tip: make extra simple syrup to store and have on hand!

Nothing too crazy happening on the fitness front. Since I’ve been traveling, I’ve missed a couple of weeks of flamenco- getting back into it this week!

Sunday: Core40

Monday: Teach BODYPUMP and teach spin

Tuesday: Flamenco (I consider it active recovery since I’m still a beginner and still learning technique. Things like this are far away haha.)

Wednesday: Teach spin + Barre

Thursday: OFF

Friday: Teach BODYPUMP

Saturday: Teach Zumba

Are you planning and prepping for the week? What’s your fitness schedule looking like? Hope you have a happy and relaxing Sunday!
