Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner and naturally that has me thinking about Tequila (and now that song that will be stuck in my head for the rest of the night). We all know you can make a mean margarita with tequila. One of my favorites is my APRICOT MARGARITA. Today instead of margaritas we’re going to talk about using tequila to infuse flavor into all kinds of foods! Like those gorgeous margarita fish tacos pictured above. You can find that and 11 more tasty tequila foods after the jump!
