The Margarita Distribution

I haven’t been posting much lately because I have been busy taking the online Statistics class straight from the depths of HELL.  That’s right my friends, my useless Political Science degree wasn’t enough for me and I’ve been toying with the idea of going to grad school.  Before I can apply to any of the programs I am considering, I have to take a few prerequisite classes that my undergrad degree did not afford me.  One of these classes is Statistics.

When I thought it would be a good idea to take this class online, essentially having to teach the subject to myself, I apparently grossly overestimated my intelligence.  The book might as well be written in Turkish for all I understand of it; the language of Statistics is completely foreign to me.  Stem and leaf plots, p-hat, x-bar and z-scores, Chebychev’s Theorem, letters from the Greek alphabet…  You can see why I needed to take a break from studying for my final to have a drink.

Since Cinco de Mayo is this weekend, I decided to make it a margarita.

Silver Tequila, Mango Syrup

My boyfriend and I went to Chili’s a few weeks ago and I had one of their Mango Margaritas.  It was so good I wanted to try to recreate it at home, and I think I came pretty close!

Mango Margarita

1 oz Jose Cuervo Silver Tequila
2 oz Triple Sec
2 oz Monin Mango Syrup
1 Tbsp lime juice

Combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker, fill with ice, shake and then pour into a salt-rimmed glass.  Use Statistics book as a coaster while you kick back and relax with a yummy tropical margarita.  There is a 99% probability that you are really going to enjoy this drink!

Wish me luck on my final tomorrow morning.  It’s cumulative, and it seems that I have already forgotten everything except the last two chapters!

  1. Ooo mango and margarita sounds like a match made in heaven. Sorry your online class is from hell, I never was good at stats myself. Just have a bunch of these before your test and I bet you’ll be stress-free heehee 😉

  2. Good luck with your final. I took that class in person and I struggled so much!!! I’d use my stats book as a coaster any day. That class was so frustrating!!

    1. Thanks! If I didn’t have to return this book (I rented it from Amazon) I’d light the damn thing on fire and roast marshmallows over it!

  3. Thank you! I thought it was time to change things up, especially now that I have all this free time on my hands since I am done trying to learn statistics! lol!

  4. Ugh, I took Stats 1 & 2, barely skinned by 2. I can clearly remember your pain. Margaritas seem to make everything bearable though, and a mango Margarita sounds wonderful! Good Luck!
