Happy Monday, but more importantly HAPPY NATIONAL MARGARITA DAY! It’s seriously one of my favorite days of the year.
Mondays can be so drab and of course I’m going to be sitting in training all day long. I’ve already made plans to make my own margaritas at home tonight thanks to some awesome recipes courtesy of Milagro Tequila.
Milagro Tequila is made from the world’s finest blue agave found deep in the heart of the Jalisco highlands and I’ve got five cocktails to celebrate National Margarita Day with.
Cheers friends! CHEERS!
