Notice anything different around here? We are super excited to showcase our new and improved Cooking in College site! After two and a half years of blogging, we’ve “revamped” our design and layout for a third time. This was probably the biggest revamp of the three!
You’ll notice some new features and some old ones too. First, our logo was designed by Giuseppe and his team at G and Co Design Studio. We are so grateful for their wonderful work! Next, our homepage is laid out a bit different than before. We have a featured post slider, located towards the top of the home page, that will vary from month to month. We then will display our most recent posts with thumbnail images instead of having to scroll to find our posts. Finally, each of our new recipes will have a easy to read and print recipe card.
Our little blog has grown so much over the years and we can’t thank our readers enough for your continued support! We sure hope this site will better serve you and your kitchen adventures!
Now it is time to celebrate! Oh wait, we have one more thing to happy about from this weekend…
If you don’t already know, our school is the University of Pittsburgh. And if you haven’t heard yet, our football team just beat Notre Dame over the weekend at home. It was a thrilling game! Not to mention the amazing tailgate we were able to attend before hand. Erica’s parents also drove up from Maryland to go to the game (and even took us to the Pitt basketball game the night before!).
Onto the recipe!
Okay, this drink has been quite popular at the Wilson household. It’s been getting chilly as fall becomes winter and we really wish we were at the beach with a drink in our hand. We guess this is as close as we can get for now.
This margarita recipe is super easy to make and is easy to prepare in large batches when your friends come over to watch Downton Abbey (margaritas go with that show, right?). Just follow the 2:2:1 ratio of the ingredients!
First, start off with a small glass with a few ice cubes (or “rocks”). Pour in your shot of tequila (we trust that you are 21!), shot of lime juice, and half shot of orange liqueur.
Swirl the contents in the glass to mix and sprinkle a pinch of salt over the ice cubes to finish it off. Who has the time to rim a glass? It’s all going to the same place!
Snuggle up on the couch to watch Downton Abbey (like really, how did we not watch this show until now?), enjoy your drink, and have a good night imagining you’re at the beach!
