Who doesn’t love a good margarita, am I right? Not much sounds better than coming home from a long day at work and whipping up a quick and easy margarita. Or two. Or three. Or, screw it, four. Heck, who says you can only consume these after work? I mean, it is 5 o’clock somewhere! Just make sure to make some yummy tacos to enjoy these with! #tacosandtequila
