Ah! There is nothing more relaxing to me than spending summer vacation on the beach. OK, well, maybe there is ONE thing more relaxing. That would be spending summer vacation on the beach with a margarita in hand. Lucky me; I had the privilege of spending four days and three nights at the gorgeous Villa del Palmar at The Islands of Loreto resort and spa. I can’t wait to tell you about it all including hiking, paddle boarding, the amazing food and staff, my incredible private suite, and my clam diving excursion. But first, I just wanted to share a little Sun Shaped Key Lime Garnish How to. My friend Sharon and I had a special tutorial by our bartender, Jorge, on the beach when he made us some tasty and refreshing cucumber margaritas with a chili lime rim.

You only need three things:

  • Sharp Knife
  • Key Lime
  • Cutting Board

OK, well you also need a margarita of course! First, slice the end off of the key lime and discard.

Cut a thin slice saving the rest of the lime for later and follow the lines of the flesh and cut, stopping at the inside of the rind.

Isn’t it adorable? It was such a beautiful and thoughtful touch to help make our sun bathing THAT much more special. Jorge went over and above for us, especially taking the extra time to show us how to make this unique margarita garnish.
