Author Notes

THIS for the holidays. Margaritas that taste like the winter months and still give you a little Mexi-zing. Everyone who knows me understand that I will never turn down a margarita (and chips and salsa for that matter). I love how simple this recipe is and how freaking pretty! You can make this by the batch too- and when people arrive over the holidays- if you are keeping to the immediate fam- whichever, honestly, just pour a glass at the start of night and the night will go swimmingly well. Cheers and cheers! —HeidiMoyer
