strawberry orange margarita 1

Have I mentioned how much I love Mexican food?  Like maybe once or a hundred times twice?

And you know what goes great with Mexican food?  Margaritas.

Interestingly enough, I have this thing about tequila.  The “thing” being that I don’t really care for it all that much.  Unless it’s in a frozen strawberry (or other fruit-flavored) margarita.  I can’t do the plain, on-the-rocks thing.  I don’t know, clearly I’m not a real margarita drinker.

But last weekend, I really wanted to be one.  The weather was gorgeous–perfect weather for sitting out on the patio, firing up the old grill, and just relaxing–and since we were having fajitas, margaritas seemed like the next logical step.

I’m nothing if not logical.
