Carrot Cucumber Margarita

 

We’re making the Easter bunny jealous today with a refreshing carrot cucumber margarita!

After a busy day of preparing the days festivities the adults will definitely need a refreshing margarita to help us wind down.  From the food, decorations, egg hunt, games, candy and the messy clean up the party most likely will stretch into the evening.  Lucky us.

 

 

 

 

I plan on unwinding with one of these gems.  Don’t you just love the intense orange?  It screams Spring!

The taste on the other hand soothes the tired, weary feet from a long day of chasing kids and dodging confetti filled cascarones. Thank goodness for my friend tequila.  Enjoy!

  8. This drink is dangerous! While you’re winding down from the tequila, you’re thinking how health conscious you are for drinking all of that carrot and cucumber juice, SO…I might as well have another! :) Great spring margarita!
