LaraThalice House Margaritas

Classic Margarita for Cinco de Mayo

Well, I've finally done it. I've decided to share my most prized recipe - my margarita. And the funny thing is, there's really no secret to the secret.

I think the real secret is in the song-sauce...yup, that's right. I have a Spotify playlist called "Sip Margaritas and Listen." When you pair this playlist with my margaritas, I believe something magical happens.

A fresh piña colada in Puerto Rico on the beach doesn't quite compare to the SAME exact recipe made at home on a winter's just fact. It's all about the ambiance! So, if you can't enjoy this recipe on a balcony overlooking the water in Mexico, you might as well whip it up to some tunes that put you there, mentally.
