If there's anything the Barefoot Girls know how to do, it's how to find fun in anything with the help of a little creativity, a lot of style, and some ribald humor thrown in for good measure. But, when it comes to Mean Greens, their famous "kicks you in the pants and makes you want to dance" margarita, the fun's already in the glass, and there's no better way to celebrate the arrival of summer than to kick off your shoes, Barefooter-style, and mix up a batch for your Memorial Day festivities!
However....it's a secret recipe. So secret and coveted, everyone on Captain's has been begging and bargaining for it to no avail for years. Per Keeley, the Queen Bee of the Barefoot Girls:
"Mean Greens were the Barefooter’s specialty – a powerful margarita made of top-shelf tequila, Grand Marnier, fresh lime juice, a dusting of lime zest, a splash of homemade lemonade for sweetness, and two secret ingredients that would go to the grave with the four women."
If you read Barefoot Girls you probably wanted the recipe, especially if you enjoy margaritas. So, how are you going to make your own? Here's a great top-shelf margarita recipe
