Which Tequila Should You Use to Make a Margarita?
The first few times I made it I used 1800 silver tequila, then I found that Trader Joe’s had their own
blanco version, but this week I decided to splurge a little with Casamigos Tequila.
The tequila is important if you’re going to do shots, but to be honest you don’t need expensive alcohol to make
a mean margarita, or any cocktail.
If you’re thinking you don’t have the time or patience to make your own watermelon juice. You do. I promise.
Cut up a bunch of watermelon, throw it in a blender and voilá—you have watermelon juice.
My ninja does all the heavy work for me, and then I simply put it in a pitcher in my fridge and it’s good for a few days.
