Cinco de Mayo is in a few days! We always look forward to this fun occasion, not because we have any Mexican heritage, but it is like a slight nod that summer is soon to follow. With everything that we have been enduring, we feel like many of us are ready for a little sunshine and escape even if we are sitting in our own backyard pool!
We kicked off our little blog in our tiny stake of the internet 4 years ago on this very weekend with a cheers to Cinco de Mayo and our ultra-fav Skinny Agave Margarita. This is our summer signature cocktail, as many of you know. We have shared with you a few variations over the years. This year we have another delicious variation that you are really going to love!!!
The Raspberry Margarita recipe makes a batch of about 4 cocktails. You will need Grand Marnier, your favorite tequila, fresh and frozen raspberries, fresh lime juice and cocktail ready agave nectar. Place all of the ingredients into a blender until well blended. Pour into serving glass over ice and garnish with fresh raspberries. Yummo!
