Chocolate Margaritas

Yeah, you heard me.

Chocolate margaritas.

I’m sure it’s not a new thing–although I have to tell you, I’m a master at trying flavored margaritas, and somehow I missed the boat on this one.

But ohmygoodnesswherehasthisbeenallmylife?

And if you knew about it and didn’t tell me–shame on you.

You know chocolate and me arelikethis.  And I am pretty much locked at the hip with Mexican related stuff (or um, it’s locked on my hips from the consumption of waaaaaaaaaaaaaay too many chips and salsa), so the minute I spotted this recipe I had to make one right away.

You should, too.

It is a great way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, after all!

I’m not going to lie: it is a super-sweet drink and is probably best served as a dessert drink rather than a cocktail.  It’s also a super-strong drink (well, it was for me, though I’m actually not a big drinker), so if you don’t like ‘em that way, cut back on the tequila a bit.  Even the Tall Boy, not typically a sweet-drink fan, enjoyed this one!
