It's cold out. We're tired and dried out! I decided to rope my aunt and my mom into a spa/tequila night one cold Saturday night. Let's just say they didn't need much roping ;)
I'll introduce the ladies who enjoyed.
Lauren (That's me!) (NM) - owner and curator of LABConsignment.com, new-ish mom. Loves to cook, drink wine, and spend time with family and friends.
Sandi (EN) - West Coast empty nester, loves to cook, create, and stay healthy.
Lindy (AR) - The almost retiree. Loves to cook, care for others, and a nice glass of white.
We started by getting our tequila prepped. We'd recently been to El Catrin, and enjoyed an amazing tequila experience. I enjoy a sipper of tequila from time to time, top shelf only to keep hangovers at bay, so I had to show my mom and aunt the way. Our amazing server talked with us about their huge array of tequilas and we decided on Clase Azul Blanco, which was accompanied by two sipper sangrita chasers, a savoury and a sweet both with a kick!
We were in heaven...so we recreated them for our spa night!
Let the spa night begin!
