Vanilla Bean Margarita

by James Stevenson

Margaritas are just the thing to jump start your evening! You can treat this lovely Margarita like a liquid dessert or a pre-dinner party starter. I do not like super sweet drinks but the vanilla bean plus the honey and agave give a hint of sweetness!

This drink is super easy to make you just throw everything in the blender and serve. I like to serve these fancy treats at a party because of the one step preparation. Also the combination of salt and vanilla bean rimmed on the glass is amazing! It really adds flavor and spark to the drink. If you feel like your week is way too vanilla you need to take it up a notch with this vanilla bean margarita.
