Don Julio margerita with freshly squeezed limes from Habanero's.

Who says a margarita is a woman’s drink?

Your mom does?  Well, obviously she hasn’t been to Mexico where margaritas are a staple alcoholic beverage for men, women, locals and turistas alike.

They’re great drinks when you’re sitting by the pool checking out all the middle aged hotties make out with each other.  They’re also great drinks when you want to take a little vacation in the middle of your work week (not your work day – that would make you an alcoholic).

To make the best margaritas, you must have the best ingredients.  Fresh limes and top shelf tequila like Don Julio or Patron Silver set the standard for margaritas that will turn your ordinary day into a fiesta.  Please also make sure to always, always do the proper measuring when making yours:

Blended?  With salt?  How about ordering the next one with a little awesome and let the good times roll.

Muy bueno!
