Do You Fancy a Margarita?

Happy Cinco De Mayo Loves!  This is honestly one of my favorite holidays because I am a true lover of any and all Mexican food (could eat it everyday) and I am a serious tequila lover.  I swear give me some good tequila and I am a happy lady.   I was reading my new Bon Appetit last weekend and I came across an article tittled "How to Mix the Ultimate Margarita".  Umm, yeah I devoured the article and  then I promptly made both Ritas, nevermind it was only 3:00 in the afternoon but it had me wanting one.   Now they are household favorites.  I know you will all love the Blackberry Rita but don't snub the Jalapeno one.  I know it sounds weird but trust me it is really good in a crazy way.  If you like a little spice and heat you will love this drink!  Try them both and let me know what you think!

There is vegan place called Karyn's Cooked in Chicago and they have this spicy hot margarita. It's the most insane thing ever. I will try this!

Uno Mas has a delicious jalepeno cilantro margarita. I bet if you added cilantro to your version, it would be amazing!
