To Do This Weekend: Mix up Some Margs!

Margs, Margis, Ritas…whatever you call them, the Margarita is sure to spice up any summertime gathering.  Few can say no to a Margarita, and they are equally as delicious without the alcohol.

There are two rules you must adhere to when making Margs:

  1.  Do NOT ever use a mix.  Without exception, they are too syrupy sweet.  And the fluorescent, toxic color is surely not good on the system.
  2. Do NOT ever use cheap tequila.  If you’ve ever had cheap tequila, you know what I’m talking about.  Splurge for the good stuff: you will be happy you did so tomorrow.

I recently had these “Ritas” at a friend’s house, and they were so delicious.  Made in a blender, they are great for a group.  The beer and 7-up add an interesting, refreshing frothy texture.
