My 1st Mother’s Day!

Being a mother is the most magical thing in the world.  Life get’s so crazy with a baby in your life but I couldn’t imagine it any other way!!  I was so excited to celebrate my 1st Mother’s Day this year, which also happened to be Ella’s 8 Month B-day.

The Pure Mexican Maragarita

With Cinco De Mayo quickly approaching, I only found it appropriate to post this wonderful cocktail recipe called: The Pure Mexican Maragarita from theKitchn.com.

Pure Mexican Margarita

Serves 2

2 ounces (1/4 cup) tequila
1 ounce (2 tablespoons) freshly squeezed lime juice
3/4 ounce (1 tablespoon plus 1 1/2 teaspoons) agave nectar or 1/2 ounce (1 tablespoon) Simple Syrup
3/4 ounce (1 tablespoon plus 1 1/2 teaspoons) cold water
1 slice lime (sliced crosswise into a wheel)
3 tablespoons kosher salt, optional

Shake the tequila, lime juice, agave nectar, and water vigorously with ice and strain into a chilled rocks glass or coupe filled with ice. Garnish with the wheel of lime.

Optional garnish: before filling the glass with ice, moisten the rim and dip it in a dish of kosher salt.

ENJOY THIS AMAZING MARGARITA!  I know I will be this Cinco De Mayo

Cheers!
