Little 'Ritas

It’s margarita time or at least little ‘rita time in our house, which happens to be better than the adult version! We came up with this recipe last year as a way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo and it became our all summer long drink. It’s so refreshing and delicious that I had all the neighborhood kids coming and begging for more. There’s nothing better than sitting in the backyard with a bunch of kiddos sipping little ‘ritas between water balloon tossing.

Little ‘Rita Recipe

1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1/8 cup fresh lemon juice
4 tablespoons agave syrup
1/8 cup orange juice
2 1/2 cups ice
1 Lime sliced

1/4 cup sugar – for the rim

Place all ingredients except for the sliced lime into a blender and turn on high for about 1 minutes or until all ice chunks are gone. Pour sugar onto a small plate (wide enough for the rim of your glass). Take one of the lime slices and run it around the rim of each glass, then dip the rim into the sugar. Garnish with the lime slice. Serves 4.
