Coming Clean in Cabo

I have a confession to make!!!!!  Lukus and I have been in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico at Capella Pedregal celebrating our 1st anniversary.  This was a complete surprise for Lukus, who did not know we were going here until arriving at the airport early Sunday morning.  This is actually where we got married, so I am a really amazing wife.

Unfortunately I have been a bit under the weather (no NOT because I drank the water, I can say with 100% certainty!  Besides all water is SAFE on property).  Fortunately the hotel and its surroundings are gorgeous, so if you are going to spend the day curled up in the fetal position at least it’s on a chaise in the pool, by the ocean.

I think this is the point where I insert jealousy-inducing photos:

For those of you who want your own little taste of Mexico, here is the hotel’s margarita recipe to whet you appetite:

Capella Margarita

  • 1½ Oz Tequila Don Julio Reposado
  • ¼ Oz Grand Marnier
  • 1 Oz Fresh Orange Juice
  • 1 Oz Fresh Grapefruit Juice
  • 1 Oz Fresh Lime Juice
  • ½ Oz Simple Syrup

Rim a rocks glass with lime juice, dip it into salt and fill with ice cubes.  Fill the cocktail shaker with ice cubes and add all the ingredients.  Shake strong and pour into the rocks glass.  Garnish with a lime wedge.



  1. Amazing! I had about 10 of those margarita’s sitting poolside. Oh Heaven!!!
