Now that Halloween has come and gone, I'm already craving Christmas. The decorations, the music and movies, the smell, and dare I say it, the snow!
But before we fully jump into all things winter and Christmas lets take a trip to the tropics with Old Orchards new mixers in Pina Colada, Strawberry Daiquiri and Margarita!
Margarita's are surprisingly hard to get right if you ask me. I often find them too salty or too sugary. When I made my margarita I added ice, a can water, 1/2 can tequila and blended. I was pleasantly surprised with the taste. Unlike most margarita mixes this one was not too syrupy or sugary. It was slightly salty, but not overwhelmingly so. If I had a lime on hand it really would have finished off the margarita perfectly.
This brought me back to sitting on a beach in Mexico, sipping a blended margarita while digging my toes in the sand. I'll probably have to whip these up again once the snow starts flying to bring me back to that warm, tropical place.
