Mini Strawberry Margaritas
A few weeks ago my childhood amiga hosted a book signing fiesta for me and it was insane FUN! She went all out to create an intimate space complete with a nacho bar, Mexican candy bar and even a selfie station. She strung papel picado, tiny piñatas along the walls, placed decorative barro clay mugs as centerpieces and even made a custom Latin Twist backdrop for guests to snap selfies.
I wanted to greet the first wave of guests with a special treat so I whipped up a tray of mini strawberry margaritas. When guests arrived they were greeted at the door with a chilled margarita, boy were they happy! Served in mini Don Julio bottles these fresh strawberry margaritas were the hit of the party.
Special shout out to Don Julio for sending me a few boxes of mini bottles to treat my guests.
Having fun at the Latin Twist selfies station! And check out my sweet friend Margarita, hostess with the mostess, always with a cocktail in her hand! Love ya chica!
