The Margarita: Two Ways

margarita recipe

It’s no secret that I love a good cocktail.  And in summer there is no cocktail I like better than a margarita!  My two go-to margarita recipes are complete opposites, one brings the heat and one the sweet.  My Peppered Margarita is swimming with jalapenos while my St. Germain margarita is accented with mint and elderflower.  Cheers! truly, MKR.
