Homemade Margaritas

Cinco de Mayo was last week, and we celebrated with homemade tacos, salsa, and homemade margaritas. Original, right? 

These homemade margaritas are so easy and so so so much better than the store-bought, pre-made mix. Plus, you're less likely to feel absolutely terrible the next day if you drink one (or two) too many. 

I promise you'll never want to buy pre-made mix after trying these out. Plus, you'll get great use out that cocktail shaker you paid too much for to make your bar cart look awesome. (or was that just me?)

Enjoy, recipe is below the photo.
