It’s Friday which means kick back and pour yourself a cocktail….it is 5 o’clock somewhere right?
Andy and I LOVE Mexican as evidenced by our menu for this past week: Mango Guacamole, Margarita’s, and tomorrow the Ultimate Veggie Taco’s. When we dine out for Mexican, I hardly ever order a margarita unless it from Diablitos Cantina in St. Louis. They make there own house infused tequila in a variety of flavors such as cucumber, jalapeño, pineapple, etc. They are fantastic and aren’t overly sweet which is the one factor that strays me away from margarita’s.
These margarita’s were so refreshing and down right amazing. If Andy likes them you know there going to be a hit. Definitely a crowd pleaser and a must try.
I’m so ready for summer to be here so that I can sit by the pool and have a few of these margarita’s.
