I am so obsessed with Margartias lately. Maybe it was the burst of warm weather we had in early February, but I’m not even going to tell you how fast I recently went through a bottle each of Cabo Wabo and Cointreau (don’t worry, I shared!).
You’ll notice my margaritas are not bright green, and that’s because there is no sign of margarita mix in this house. Fake color, fake flavor, and unnecessary calories – no thanks! The extra effort it takes to juice your own limes is definitely worth it.
My boyfriend Brian makes fab cocktails. He came over the other night for a post-work cocktail, only to find that there weren’t really any mixers in my house (greattt job Laur). We found a week-old bottle of tangerine lime seltzer and key limes…”That will work,” he said, and my champion improviser went to work.
We were both expecting sub-par, but this drink turned out to be great – I credit the bartending skills (…and the limes).
