Today is National Margarita Day so I thought I would share my favorite margarita recipe! I love spicy food and that translates into some of my drink recipes. This margarita is so easy to make because you throw all ingredients into the blender and you’re done! Party Time! This is not the traditional margarita it has lemons and fresno peppers which give the drink color and heat. The mango gives it a tropical flair and helps cut some of the spiciness. Celebrate National Margarita Day with this fire lighter! If you are in the dumps and feel blue this will set your spirit and life on fire to do great things! Just make it already……..
