Sunset Margarita Recipe

I love margaritas in any way, shape, and form. Margaritas and I go way back…from my college days at Elon University drinking 99 cent margs at Monterreys, to creating them by the pitcher at home. I use one and only recipe for my margaritas. Using a pre-made margarita mix is unacceptable. Thankfully, my family’s ‘secret’ recipe is easy, pretty, and [most importantly] delicious for this Sunset Margarita Recipe.

Don’t the colors just make you think of a sunset? It’s 5:00 somewhere…
