Cocoa Margarita and a postcard from Mexico {Recipe}

Don’t you love it when your “friends” (more like frenimies) start posting all their beachy vacay photos on their Facebook page, in the dead of winter, while you’re stuck in your cubicle.  Dramatizing how horrible they had it because Juan, the resident cabana boy and official grape feeder, was a little off with his timing of feeding you grapes and serving up your cocktails?  Thankfully Facebook has a feature called “hide what this jerky person is saying” and you can block all of it.

Once you stop your evil snicker, you can whisk yourself away on your own little mental Mexican vacay where you drink these Cocoa Margaritas, and have the kids fan you and feed you grapes (ok, they’ll probably feed you goldfish with their groadie little hands, but you take what you can get).  This recipe has me dreaming of beach, sun, and margaritas from the Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit, located in the exotic Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico.  A destination, and potential Dessertcation, I plan to make really, really soon.  Then you all will be blocking my vacation pics of myself and Juan.cocoa margarita
