What a wonderful week it is that chases National Drink Wine Day (Feb. 18th) with National Margarita Day (Feb. 22nd). Translation: I cheated on my diet at least twice this week. National Martini Day doesn’t happen until June, so we’re in the clear for a little bit (and I’ll be back to water and Nutrisystem soon). But first, let’s celebrate National Margarita Day! I love me some crazy flavored margaritas, but I think today calls for a skinny twist on the classic. (Also due in part to the guilt of me cheating on my diet. Ha!) Read on for my favorite recipes courtesy of my friends at Patrón. Simple, salty, satisfying. I prefer mine on the rocks with salt on the rim, but if you want to serve it straight or blend it I won’t hate you for it. Cheers!
I have mentioned Philosophy before, but I’m the biggest fan of their cocktail scented collection (surprise!). The ultra-rich Senorita Margarita 3-in-1-Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath smells like limey, salty amazingness. The crisp scent is so refreshing and I love that this can be used for my other favorite pastime, bubble baths.
1 1/2 oz Patrón Silver
1/2 oz Patrón Citrónge
1 1/2 oz Fresh sweet ‘n sour (lime-lemon-agave mix)
Lime wedge for garnish
Combine in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake up and serve as desired.
