The Best Margarita Recipe! You will never want to use mix again!

I love margaritas.  If you have been with me here in this little space of mine on the interwebs you probably already know we have a standing Friday Night Dinner reservation at our favorite local Mexican place and I enjoy a margarita the size of my head as my reward for keeping everyone in my house alive for the week.

National Margarita Day - Make the Best Margarita

The key to the awesomeness of these margaritas is using a good quality tequila and FRESH squeezed lime juice.  Not cheap liquor and not bottle lime juice.  Believe me.  I have made these time and time again and the fresh ingredients are the KEY to this recipe being the BEST Margarita Recipe!

Strawberry Sangria Recipe

I know, I know…we are all supposed to be switching to fall mode.  I’d really love to do that however it’s still like 95 degrees here and really humid so I can’t help but to still feel like it’s summer here.  In honor of summer I wanted to share this deliciously perfect Strawberry Sangria Recipe that will be sure to quench your thirst and leave you thinking about the fruits of summer!

Simple Strawberry Sangria Recipe

This refreshing sangria is made with grapes, blueberries and strawberries with a bit of triple sec to give it a fresh citrus flavor in the background.  I use a Strawberry wine from St. James Winery here in St. James, MO.  It’s about 10 minutes from where I went to college in Rolla, MO so we used to frequent it on beautiful Friday afternoons in the fall and spring!  The sweetness of the wine give enough flavor that no additional sugar is needed!

I like to garnish with a whole strawberry as well as a small skewer of the grapes and blueberries.  It’s pretty and it’s like a snack while you drink :)  I mean between the fruit garnish and the fruit floating in the drink it’s like a serving in itself!  I am totally contributing to your daily intake of fruits here {wink}.

Copycat Lime-A-Rita Recipe

I am so excited to share with you a fabulous recipe that is for all you Lime-A-Rita lovers out there!  Mix up a batch of this Copycat Lime-A-Rita recipe and you night never drink one from a can again!  Cinco de Mayo Copycat Lime-a-rita at

This drink has been around much longer than the tiny cute cans in your grocery store refrigerator have.  We are huge fans of eating at Mexican restaurants and I have seen over turned Coronas in Margarita glasses for years!  Then the cute little cans of it came out.  While those are nice, I like it ever better when I can mix up a whole bit batch of a delicious drink myself.
