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
