Tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo and I still don't have anything planned to do. I've got to work an event and then there's the Carnival concert with Machel, but it just doesn't feel like enough, you know? So while I figure that out, I came up with this refreshing margarita. I was so excited to drink it, I forgot to salt the rims of my glasses, oops! And if there's no way you can make this in time for tomorrow, don't worry! Margarita’s are not just for celebrating Cinco de Mayo – they’re a refreshing, everyday summer cocktail. And combining the bright flavors of citrus with tequila shouldn’t break your calorie bank.
This margarita recipe is simple enough to whip up at the last minute but complex enough to have a great flavor. I love that you can scale them up to make a large bowl of punch for your Cinco de Mayo party (to serve alongside your favorite skinny chicken tacos, of course!). Then, all you need to decide is if you’re a salt-rimmed on-the-rocks margarita lover or you prefer no-salt and crushed ice.
