Since having a baby, date nights have changed considerably. We used to go out every Friday night. Usually dinner. Sometimes a movie. Sometimes a bar. Lately, we grab whatever we can get for dinner and are passed out on the couch by 11, weekend or not.

I’m not complaining; have you seen this face? But, things are definitely different.

 Thankfully, for the past week and a half or so, Baby Girl has fallen into a bit of a schedule and after our nightly walk, has been down for the night by 9:00 pm or so.

9:00 pm! That means that we have about two hours for date night before I pass out.

One of my favorite drinks to order at restaurants used to be margaritas. But, now I need to maximize every minute of our new two hour, at home, date night. I don’t like wine or beer so having a pre-mixed tequila drink is a beautiful thing.

Iced tea + lime margarita + Jose Cuervo tequila = Teagarita. Super refreshing and perfect for summertime, especially with some chips and homemade salsa.

I love slushy drinks so I wanted to crush up some ice and pour the Teagarita over it but I was scared that the blender would wake up the baby and I didn’t want to chance it. #newmomSo, I settled on pouring it over ice. First, I left it as is. Then I tried Teagarita with lemonade and it was even better.

Teagarita just came out in May but you should be able to find it at your local store. If they don’t have it yet, be patient and keep checking. I have two pregnant friends who are due soon and we already have plans to get together for some Teagaritas once their babies get here.

If only the lightning bugs outnumbered the mosquitos, we could have enjoyed our drinks outside for more than a few minutes. Instead we stayed inside for a Wii dance party.

Sometimes the most simple nights are the best nights. Cheers to summer!
