I love watching The Last Man on Earth. When The first season started I thought it was such an accurate depiction of what someone would do if they were the last person on Earth. As the show went on, I think it became more of a depiction of what a total asshole would do if they discovered they weren’t the only person on Earth. It’s great. And I totally love Caril (Phil/Carol ship name?) and I want a margarita pool.
So I’m going to make one…. well, I’m going to make a mixing bowl of margarita. I think the idea is to make a huge amount in a non-traditional container. Think Slurpee Bring-Your-Own Container Day. There’s actually a recipe for the margarita pool on Fox, so I just scaled that down.
I started by rimming the mixing bowl with salt. I didn’t do that because I like salt, I did it because I think it’s funny. I actually tried drinking from the rim and it was terrible, but if salt is your thing, go for it. Then I started filling it. I started by taking the “0” off the end of the amount listed on the ingredient list and making it ounces instead of cups. So that’s 2 oz of lime juice, 1 1/2 oz lemon juice (I ran out of lemon juice), 3 oz triple sec, and 6 oz tequila.
I didn’t expect this to be good, but it actually wasn’t bad. I drank it and got caught up on The Last Man on Earth. I sent some questionable texts and fell asleep very shortly after. Today I am hungover. Enjoy! Just make sure you don’t enjoy the mixing bowl margarita on a worknight.
