Strawberry Margaritas

My favorite tequila makes an appearance on Cinco De Mayo in a delicious and sweet cocktail

You see, I’ve never had one of those terrible god awful hangovers from it, and I don’t get mean on tequila. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. I’m SUPER nice and fun when I drink this Mexican favorite and I drink Cazadores like it’s water when I go out. It’s an affordable liquor, and pretty good quality tequila. I keep this bottle stocked in my freezer at all times in case I want to all of a sudden party. So that doesn’t happen very often, but it’s always good to have tequila on hand in my opinion.

In honor of Cinco De Mayo, I’m sharing my second favorite way to enjoy tequila, in a margarita. My preferred variation is on the rocks with a squeeze of lime (you’re cringing I know, but it’s what I love). The simple flavors of sweet strawberries, fresh lime and the bite of tequila is the perfect way to celebrate this festive holiday. If you like a sweeter margarita, add in a little simple syrup, but personally, the strawberries do just enough for me.
