Tres Margaritas for Cinco de Mayo // Budget Fairy Tale

Bienvenidos! Happy Cinco de Mayo! This is one of my favorite holidays because MARGARITAS. To celebrate, I decided to make three different margarita recipes for you guys, because what’s better than one margarita? THREE margaritas! Honestly I wanted to make five (cinco) but I ran out of time. Let me tell you, it was really difficult testing these drink recipes but someone has to do the hard work around here. You’re welcome.

To make these three unique margaritas, I took inspiration from what was already in my kitchen! I have plenty of oranges from our tree, so making an orange margarita was an easy choice. This one was actually my favorite! I love Chambord (so much so that we had a Chambord soak for our wedding cake) so I loved combining it into my favorite mixed drink. Finally, I’ve been on a blackberry kick lately! Eatin’ ’em like candy! It turns out they are good for margaritas, too.

I hope these inspire you to try something new in the kitchen today. Salud!
