When life gives you lemons, make lemonade…margaritas?

Yes, please, and thank you.

I mean, lemonade is already pretty great all by itself, but what party doesn’t love a sunny margarita?

Especially when we’re in thick into summer and everyone’s eager to sit under a big tree and sip a cold drink.

I can’t help with the shady tree, but I’ve got the cold drink covered…

Lemons 2

I’ve got a foodie crush on lemons pretty much all year ’round.

But these lemons are just for looks and vanity, really. I used lemons for garnish alone.

Because you get to be kind of McCheaty with these Lemonade Margaritas.

    I made your Carne asada with the secrete tenderize and made this drink. We absolutely loved both recipes! I’m so happy I found your site! Thank you.

    If you happen to have a well-known chicken sandwich restaurant nearby (the one that isn’t open on a Sunday), do yourself a favor and get a large cup of their homemade lemonade for your weekend (ask for it without ice). I have not added Cointreau to this mixture, just had the lemonade in a tall glass, with just enough ice and a healthy dose of 1800 reposado.. it was amazing. I can only imagine adding Cointreau and a tiny bit of a salt rim would make it even better.

    Is it 3TB of lemonade or 3TB of lemonade concentrate?
