My birthday happens to be Cinco de Mayo. And I happen to LOVE mexican food – including queso, guacamole and especially MARGARITAS! This is the best margarita you will ever have! An absolute crowd pleaser for our little party today so I absolutely had to write this one down. And yes, this is a picture of my half full glass.. next time I’ll take a pic before I dive in! Enjoy!


1 can minute maid lemonade

3/4 can White Tequila

1 can Mexican beer like Corona or Modelo

1/2 cup Orange Juice (or Triple Sec)

Mix in big pitcher and serve over ice (with salt!)

Enjoy! 🙂

Basil Lemonade

image-12My best friend made this for my baby shower earlier this year and it was a huge hit. I decided to do the same for another shower I threw this past week. Here is a simple recipe for a tasty spin on lemonade, perfect for a shower or party.

Basil Lemonade:

  • 2-3 bottles Simply Lemonade (depending on the size of your drink dispenser)
  • 1/4 cup sugar per bottle
  • Fresh basil finely diced


  • Pour 1/4 cup sugar directly into Simply Lemonade bottle.
  • Add fresh basil
  • Shake and let sit overnight (shaking occasionally)
  • Enjoy!
