heck of a way to start the weekend

...rolling your ankle when coming down from the Bosu ball (or rubber torture device of choice in last night's total body fitness class). And this happened - which resulted in a Saturday full of watching the Food Network, hobbling to the freezer to see what we can eat this weekend, and catching up on my shows - missed during travel in DC and Richmond last week. 
I was able to pull myself together to mix up a couple of cocktails tonight though (I know - what a trooper!) 
pink margarita for one.
 Fill shaker with ice and combine 2 shots tequila, 1 and 1/2 shots fresh lime juice (juice from about half a lime), 1/2 shot triple sec, 1 shot cranberry juice, small squeeze of agave nectar (depending on how sweet you like it). Shake well and serve in salted rim glass with a lime garnish. To make the salt adhere, run a little agave around the rim of the glass before dipping in salt. Pretty in pink - on a Saturday night, with a bum foot. 
evening sunset - via Martha Stewart.
And then my foot was still hurting. So I made another cocktail-obviously for medicinal purposes. In a shaker with ice add the juice from half an orange, juice from a large wedge of lemon, 1-2 shots tequila and shake well. In rocks glass with ice, add a drizzle of grenadine, fill glass 2/3 with citrus-tequila mixture and top with club soda. Garnish with a lemon peel twist. Who needs Ibuprofen when you have citrus and tequila? Happy Saturday night all!
