Mixing classic cocktails and great flavors for this one! A classic frozen Margarita with a classic Greyhound to make the perfect Summer drink, a Frozen Greyhound Margarita.

I know that grapefruit is really a Winter fruit, but it does stay with us through the Spring. For those of us who live in cold parts of the world, you might feel antsy for Summer flavors like I do. So, here I am, trying to bring summer a bit closer by combining a Winter fruit with a Summer drink. Today, as part of our Greyhound series, we are going to make a Frozen Greyhound Margarita.

Spring Time Is The Best Time

I live in Fargo, ND and come March, we have been living in sub-zero temps for several months. Most of us are ready for that change of season and getting antsy to be able to get outside without fear of frostbite. Even though the highest temps thus far (at the time of writing) has been in the 40s, I have already spotted a person wearing shorts. Unless we get another storm, which is probable, I suspect I will start seeing a motorcycle or two as soon as the ice is off the road.

Kate Winslet The St. Bernard And Mud

This time of year is so awesome except one part, the mud. As a dog owner, the mud problem is real. Even though my sweet baby Kate Winslet really doesn’t like walking in the water, it is hard to avoid this time of year. Several feet of snow melt and then get on the sidewalk. We go through a period of time where everything melts, freezes at night, then becomes a sludgy mess during the day. That is where we are at. Until the snow melts and the ground dries up, taking a dog for a walk is an exercise in keeping mud outside.

I am a bit grateful, however, as my last puppers LOVED the mud. It is like he would seek it out and roll around in it. I loved Charlie so much and it was fun to play with him around the stuff, but it was also a nightmare to allow him inside in the Spring. Now that I have a dog that is approaching 150lbs, I am SO happy that she is not this way. We go on walks and she actively works to avoid puddles. What a dainty little flower!

Enough of the personal stuff, let’s make a drank.
