Margarita with a Singer/Songwriter cum Actor

I was introduced to local live theatre show by my son, Nicholas in 2006, when he was a performing art student.  Since then, I have never missed a single theatrical piece that Nicholas was in.  Now and then we will go watch other great shows especially productions by The Instant Café Theatre Company. Last Sunday, Nick and I went to see yet another great production by them called 1 SEX, 1 MONEY 1 SCANDAL.

This show was hilarious and I have to share with you and hope the laughter you get from the video will last you through the week.

Click on the link to see an interview with Jo Kukathas, the Artitstic Director of the show and some short clips:

We arrived early at the complex where the theatre is situated and we had half an hour to spare so Nick took me to a Mexican restaurant in the same complex for a glass of margarita. He knew that was my favorite cocktail drink.  The name of this margarita gave me a chuckle… they called their margarita Horny Margarita. It was really tasty and one that I think can come close to what my hubby makes for me.  I enjoyed the drink and my chat with Nick very much.  It was a lovely afternoon catching up on what is going on with my son's life and career.  I think I am just a typical mum that wants to know all about their children.  I am glad to know he is doing very well in his day job and still pursuing his passion in music and acting in the evening.  I always tell Nick that I don't wish that he will become rich and famous, I only wish he enjoys what he does and be happy.  

Oh,  since I brag about my hubby’s margarita, it will be selfish of me not to share the recipe with you right? LOL!

You’ll need a cocktail shaker, 1 lime, Tequila, Cointreau, salt, ice

Stitch’s Margarita


1 rounded tablespoon of lime-aid frozen concentrate
2 oz Cointreau
4 oz Tequila gold (we use Jose Cuervo gold)
5 large ice cubes


Place two cocktail glasses (we use a martini up glass as pictured) in the freezer for 3-4 minutes. Place a tblspn of salt on a tea cup plate and shake slightly to spread the salt evenly across. Place all remaining ingredients into the cocktail shaker.Put  AC/DC’s “You shook Me All Night Long” on the stereo (set to loud). Dance while carefully cradling the shaker for at least more than half the song. Remove glasses from the freezer and invert them and dip the glass edge in the salt. (note, if you live in an arid or semi-arid place, you may have to moisten the edge of the cocktail glasses for the salt to stick).  Pour shaker contents carefully into the chilled & salt rimmed glasses and place one or two of the now reduced ice cubes from the shaker into the glass as well. Replay and sip!
