Happy Cinco de Mayo! I can’t believe it was just a year ago that I was posted my Blueberry Fire Margarita! This year I have a new marg creation for you guys. I planned on posting this earlier in the week, however last weekend I was in Key West for two friends bachelorette parties (which I cannot even begin to explain how much fun I had – if you haven’t gone seriously book a flight, like yesterday!), and I’ve spent all week catching up on work and recovering. We literally had the best time. 80s, sunny, house right off Duval … we did a wig night bar crawl, drag show, pool party at Dante’s, jet skied, ate a ton of amazing fresh seafood and drank way too much. Success.
Anyway back to this marg ^^! I’ve coined it the Magical Mandarin Margarita, because it features mandarin oranges and is magical due to the fact that it doesn’t taste strong but you’ll have a decent buzz after liiike half of one. Mandarins are slightly sweeter than you’re average orange. You’ll need: tequila, triple sec, 2-3 small mandarin oranges, fresh lime juice & agave. Add all ingredients to a glass with ice, shake and dump back into the same glass. For this drink I used Casamigos Blanco tequila (George Clooney’s brand) which my future brother-in-law, Paul, got me for my birthday, and it’s actually really good! Cheers to Cinco de Drinko on a Friday… dangerous!
