Classic Margarita



It’s seems like I’ve just been drinking since Friday but I haven’t! Saturday just happened to be National Margarita Day and I am no stranger to tequila!

A Margarita can be prepared in three ways: neat (like the one I made), on the rocks or frozen. I am not a big fan of sweet drinks. I find that the Margaritas  that are made at bars are way too sweet because they are made from the commercial mixes. Those taste nothing like a Margarita made with fresh lime.

When I made this Margarita I was in the middle of cooking and was wearing a sparkly sweatshirt…the only thing missing was the DJ and the guests! It was my own little party! Please remember whether your party with friends or by yourself…drink responsibly!
