I have recently ventured out of my comfort zone and joined a local bloggers club. At first I was a little hesitant about going to an event (I can be a little shy :p) but it was SO much fun – This is an amazing group of bloggers and a lot of them were also gluten free bloggers! I think it helps that it was a mixology meet-up 😉 And Sprouts was gracious enough to cater our event for all of the bloggers and it was a delicious spread!
We were learning from Barb over at Creative Culinary about how to make some delicious margaritas! I thought at first, “I know how to make margaritas!” But man, was I wrong. I’ll never go back to the basic mixing of Tequila and margarita mix! She taught us how you can and SHOULD be making this delicious drink to give it different flavors and dimensions.
We started by muddling a few different ingredients which were strawberries, blueberries and limes until it was nice and mushy (It really helps bring out the flavors) then added the pitcher mixture (lemonade, limeade and tequila) into our muddled shaker goo then we shook, shook, shook it up!
After rimming my glass in Barb’s amazing salt/sugar mixture with lemon, lime, and orange zest creations I poured my DELICIOUS margarita into a fancy glass and NOW I’m addicted. I’ll literally NEVER go back to normal margaritas – How could you?!
So now, I’m a margarita PRO and made some amazing new blogger friends in the process (It smells when the margarita melts all your shyness away ;)). Try this recipe out for yourself, you’ll LOVE it! And it’s SO simple! Also.. Fruits are good for you, so that too 😉
