It’s almost Friday…let’s have a drink!

Haven’t done one of these posts in awhile, but that’s because we haven’t tried a lot of new drinks lately.  However, when I was going through my recent pictures on my camera today, I realized I forgot about these extremely tasty margaritas we had at Guac-N-Roll when we stayed in York Beach, ME for Memorial Day weekend. 

I started with a watermelon margarita…yes…WATERMELON!  Watermelon is the best kind of fruit in my opinion, and I’ve been eating it like crazy for the past month – it’s probably one of my favorite summer things.  I went to Trader Joe’s to pick up a few things today and just had to buy some of their watermelon spears which are oh-so-easy to eat at work since they’re pre-cut for you. Anyways, when I saw the Wa-Wa-Watermelon Margarita on Guac-N-Roll’s menu, I knew I had to try it.

It did not disappoint, and I was glad it wasn’t too sweet.  Longhorn’s Steakhouse used to have a watermelon margarita and it was sickly sweet, so the Guac-N-Roll’s version was much better.  It also seems like an easy recipe we could try at home.  Tequila, triple sec, watermelon puree and fresh lime.  Though, I would like to find another substitute for triple sec after researching how horrible it is for you…ugh moving on…

Hubby decided to try the Sour Patch Margarita.  This one includes citrus tequila, melon liqueur, lime, triple sec, and surprise – Sour Patch Kids!  Yes, there were a few of those cute little candies floating around in the drink:

I also had a Blackberry-Booyah Margarita, and while that was flavorful, I’ve had similar ones at other Mexican restaurants so it wasn’t that original.  One I want to try next time is their cucumber-flavored margarita – very different if you ask me!  If you are ever around York, I definitely recommend checking out the Guac-N-Roll.  The food was fresh, the portions were pretty generous, and the service was pretty fast.  While the drinks were a little pricey, they were fairly strong and they had some pretty unique flavors to offer :) 

Happy Friday!
