How to Make A Great Margarita, Two Ways

Margaritas are a crowd pleasing cocktail, whether you’re enjoying them with friends at your favorite Mexican restaurant or mixing up a pitcher to enjoy at a backyard cookout. A good margarita is simple – made with just tequila, lime, sugar and orange liqueur – and flavorful, but can be hard to get a good one because it is easy to mess up that simple formula. ...

Margarita Cheesecake Bars

Margarita Cheesecake Bars

I’ve been in a margarita mood ever since my pre-Cinco de Mayo Blood Orange Margaritas, and have been keeping my eye out for desserts that could use a margarita twist.

The blended margaritas are often too sweet and I simply like the way that you can get more flavor from ... Read More »

Margarita Cupcakes

Margarita Cupcakes

Chocolate and vanilla are classics for a reason, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t think outside of the box a bit when it comes to cupcakes. And I’m not refering to boxed cake mixes here. I’m talking about using more unusualy flavors, like Cupcake Bakeshop does, to really let cupcakes shine, not just act as pacifiers when we’re in the mood for a little ... Read More »
