HAPPY HOUR: Patio Margaritas

I know I have posted A LOT of margarita recipes on this blog, but I have come across my absolute favorite, and quite possibly the absolute easiest margarita you could ever make! This recipe is in honor of our neighbor Karen coming back in to town (even if its only for a few days) She is the one who so generously passed this recipe on to me!

 

PATIO MARGARITAS.

INGREDIENTS:

1 Can of  Frozen Limeade

Tequila

Limes

Orange Juice

Corona

INSTRUCTIONS:

Combine 1 can of frozen limeade, one can of water (all these measurements you’ll just use the limeade can for!), half a can of orange juice, 1 can of tequila, and half of any Mexican beer (we prefer Corona!) Stir and refrigerate. Garnish glass with a salted rim and a lime wedge and you are good to go!

These are perfect for a casual night of homemade Mexican food or to supply for the masses at a party (they are that easy!)

But of course there is never an excuse to not celebrate the holidays! Here are a few great ideas to throw together an easy and inexpensive Cinco de Mayo party (because who doesn’t love an excuse to drink a margarita!)

TOURIST STYLE: Maximo Cocina Mexicana & Margarita Lounge, Dallas, TX

I literally had THE BEST MARGARITA of my life this weekend… and of course I have to spread the word! My boyfriend and I went to Easter brunch at Maximo: Cocina Mexicana & Margarita Lounge and it was AMAZING. The interior was beautiful and would be so intimate for a Saturday night dinner date. They are really known for their food and their Jalapeño Margarita (which of course is the margarita I speak of in the beginning of this post!)
