Midnight Margaritas

Eye of newt, toe of frog, wing of bat, tongue of dog,
Adder’s fork and blind worm’s sting,
Barbados lime is just the thing,
Fragias salt, like a sailors stubble,
Flip the switch, and let the cauldron bubble!

One of the best witchy movies to watch this time of year, I think we can all agree, is Practical Magic. It’s funny, it’s sweet, it’s WAY scarier than I had remembered (we tried to watch it for Friday movie night last week and had to turn it off half way and watch Jake and the Neverland Pirates instead – oops).

My favorite characters are the aunts; that’s exactly how I want to be when I get old – batty, beshawled, and meddlin’ – and hopefully I can inherit an awesome house like that to do it in.

Of course these ladies are mixing up margaritas at midnight, that’s what old bats do! This is really less a recipe (it’s your basic 3-2-1 margarita) and more of an excuse to drink margaritas and watch this adorable scene again.

Midnight Margaritas

  • 3 parts tequila (that someone left on the porch)
  • 2 parts good triple sec
  • 1 part lime juice

Mix and serve over ice – salted rim optional but recommended! If you want a frozen version, let the caldron (that’s your blender) bubble!
