Kicking Myself

I’ve been working on a simple, yet festive dinner menu for Cinco de Mayo.

Let me start by saying that I think we’re going to have to fetch the ice cream maker from the garage rafters and make some Dulce de Leche Ice Cream with Salted Pecans for dessert!

Secondly, I saw these cactus glasses at Dollar Tree a couple weeks ago and have been thinking about them ever since…..went today and they had ONE left!

Wah.

I just think they are so cute and the perfect vessel to hold these gorgeous pink Cactus Pear margaritas

Jay and I enjoyed sipping these margaritas at Bobby Flay’s Mesa Grill in Vegas and they are definitely something worth trying to recreate at home ~ the problem is where to find the cactus pear juice?!?

Tomorrow I will be tracking down some more of these {prickly} glasses and the ingredients to fill them on Saturday evening.

Meanwhile, we have our vibrant papel picado hung across the kitchen and are ready to celebrate!

Kicking myself that I didn’t pick up a set of those glasses when I first saw them.

I hate when that happens.
