It’s not everyday you open the box left on your doorstep and find a margarita inside. I mean, I didn’t exactly find a margarita inside, but I did find a bottle of Central Market Organic Kaffir Lime & Coconut Italian Soda.
It wasn’t perfect – I still had to add tequila after all. But it made the most refreshing, sparkling margarita. Perfect for that mid-afternoon I-just-sent-my-kid-to-grandma’s-for-a-3-day-weekend-and-now-I’m-going-to-sit-on-the-floor-and-watch-10-Things-I-Hate-About-You-in-complete-silence margarita. (RIP Patrick Verona.)
This margarita is a 3-day, no-pants-required weekend in a glass.
It’s a swim-up bar at a swanky all-inclusive, served over ice.
It’s a – guys. It’s a margarita. It takes 47 seconds to make and 3 seconds to realize that you should have just doubled the recipe to begin with.
Drink up. And happy 97 degrees!
