So, we had a lively time last night.

I've become a big fan of, an online community that matches products and customers.  Users can apply to host House Parties, where they'll share the contents of a party package provided by a company that wants to show off their product.  Last spring, we held a party to introduce the new "Bet You Know It" edition of Trivial Pursuit.

This time around, our party was sponsored by Sauza Tequila.   So I got a great party pack with a pitcher, margarita glasses, and coupons that let me get really cheap tequila.  We have a semi-regular girls' night out, so I invited everyone over for a corporate-sponsored get-together.  I made Tequila-Lime Chicken Tacos, all of the guests brought something yummy, and I made a "key lime" pie (the Cooks Illustrated version, which uses regular limes) for dessert.

We tried the Sauza margarita mix, and then had strawberry margaritas from a frozen mix (I'm sugaring glass rims here) for dessert.  I think everyone had a great time - I know I did!  Now I just have to figure out what we're going to do with all the leftover tequila.....
