COUNTRY COUNTDOWN #10
“Ooh turn it up mom!” is yelled from the backseat every time Toby Keith’s “Red Solo Cup” song comes on WMZQ. Now it’s a goofy song, I must admit, but it does elicit some giggles. Whether you are a redneck, frat boy, 85 foot yacht owner, camper, or CrossFitter, you have drunk out of a Red Solo Cup. It crosses all social classes, heck I think even Walmart sells the things. And like Toby says, those beautiful, shiny, red chalices summon each an every one of us to scroll our handle on them with a Sharpie.
On a very early date in our relationship, Himself pulled up in his incredibly hot silver Corvette, and when I opened the door, he was belting out a country song along with Rosanna Cash. Chills. That’s a risk though when you are dating a Jersey Girl, who typically are not known for loving Country, and would have called out anyone who did. But I found the whole thing very
sexy (lost myself there, this is a family friendly site) attractive which made me fall for him all the more. Little did he know at that time that my Daddy was from Texas, and Country Music ran through my veins, while Sinatra lived in my half Italian heart. Whoa, that sounds like a Country Song right there. If you write it, I’ll bake you a cake.
Red Solo® Cup Margaritas- adapted from my friend Kristen
12 ounce can frozen limeade
1 1/2 cans white wine, I used PEE-no-GREE-joe
1/4 can cointreau or triple sec
4 cups crushed ice
4 lime wedges
In a blender, blend the first 4 ingredients until smooth. Pour into four 18 ounce Solo® plastic cups. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze 24 hours to 6 months. Remove from freezer and rim with Margarita salt if desired, allow at least 30-60 minutes to defrost before serving- they should be slushy like a frozen Margartia. Serve with a straw and a wedge of lime. Double or triple the recipe and store in freezer and remove as needed. Great for parties! Serves 4.
Note: For those of you searching the Piggle Wiggly isles right now for canned wine and canned triple sec, wine and triple sec do not come in cans- or who knows, maybe they do now, you are using the limeade can to do the measuring.
