I have been craving Margarita lately. She and I have become friends and I plan on really bonding with her over the Summer. Margarita is cool and slick…. depending on her mood she can be a bit sour or tart sweet. I love Margarita and thinks she likes me too. She keeps showing up here at my house in different flavors. Enjoy Strawberry Cucumber Lime Margarita… she’s a nice one. Just be careful she might end up in your kitchen a few times over the Summer.
