I’m pouring you a cocktail today.
After the past few weeks we’ve had – it’s time for a margarita. And not just any margarita we are talking about a Frozen Cherry Margarita. I told you about the Mexican kick I’ve been on lately, so what better way to finish it than with a cocktail?!
I remember in college having my first margarita and not caring for it. For one they put too much of a sweet margarita mix in it. Which I believe is a no no when you can make your own mix. And two even though I like margaritas now I thought they were a little too boring. That’s why the only other margarita you’ll find here is a Tequila Sunrise one.
This Frozen Cherry Margarita should have come a little earlier since National Tequila Day was Tuesday. But oh well! Now the question is what are you going to eat with this? Tacos? Enchiladas? At least have some cheese dip – if not you might offend me. Just joking – but not really.
I chose frozen cherries because that way you can have this drink any time of year. But if you have fresh cherries – go ahead and pit those bad boys and toss them in the blender instead.

Is it a coincidence that I have cherries in my fridge that I wasn’t sure what to do with?!? Now I know….and I’ll make some cheese dip too 😉 Cheers!

I’m glad I’m not the only one that thought margaritas were too sweet. I’ll be trying this one!
