Imagine yourself sitting on your deck or porch gathered with a few friends and enjoying one of these freshly made margaritas. It can either be Cinco de Mayo, other holidays or just because (I like the just because!) The weather is getting warmer and it is time to be outside, sitting back and relaxing. Maybe you’ve been hibernating all winter and looking for an excuse to connect with your neighbors. Make a pitcher of drinks, send out an all call to come over and get the party started.
Well today is Cinco de Mayo and these drinks can be whipped up in no time. Maybe make a batch of guacamole too and end with an easy sweet treat of chocolate dipped strawberries made festive using white chocolate and green sprinkles. Since our weather today is supposed to 70’s and sunny, I’m thinking I’ll be creating some sort of celebration happy hour on our deck tonight.
This is also my favorite fruit season – fresh berries! I can’t get enough of strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries. I love having them as a snack or adding them to recipes. We all know they are good for us too. Maybe even better in a drink 🙂 Agree?
