About The Recipe

Let’s be honest, every Saturday is totally improved with a cocktail!

I feel like everyone probably has a memories of a good margarita. This is an absolute favorite in our house because it’s simple, easy, but super flavorful! It’s also the best way to cool down on hot days.

We always grab a frozen lime margarita while at Epcot in Walt Disney World and, let’s be honest, there is nothing better!

This tastes almost exactly the same!

Seriously, does it get any better?

What Tequila Should I Use?

This is all about personal preference but I recommend using a high quality añejo tequila. With only three ingredients, there’s really no where to hide!
