Somewhere in the World it’s 5:00

Unless you live in a county like Spain, then it’s 5:00 all day and all night. Why don’t I live there again? With all this kindness you all are doing take a break this weekend and enjoy this amazing weather, grab yourself a drink and say, “I’m pretty amazing”. We got the kids covered with their bucket list, now let’s get to you…..

To me summer means first and foremost one thing: chips, quality Mexican restaurant salsa and most importantly, margaritas. Now, I am quite famous for my homemade margaritas so it was only fitting to praise these new takes on a beloved classic cocktail. Because we care, we thought we would put a few of them in one place for you to browse.
