Cinco de Mayo Margaritas for Two

Happy hump day! Last night, in honor of cinco de mayo, Kris talked me into having a margarita with dinner.  I was a little reluctant at first… as much as I love a drink after work I feel like I haven’t been eating the best… but then again, I am easily peer pressured.


So Kris made the margaritas and they turned out awesome.  We threw together some ingredients we had on hand and didn’t even have to use a sugar and preservative-filled drink mix.  Here is the recipe:

Cinco de Mayo Margaritas for Two


– crushed ice

– 2 shots tequilla

– 1/2 shot triple sec

– 1 teaspoon sugar

– juice from 2 limes

– salt to taste (we added a decent amount)

Mix ingredients in drink shaker, serve in margarita glasses (line with salt, if you prefer) 🙂

I have to admit we weren’t very festive with our choice of dinner though… we had sloppy joes and margaritas to celebrate Cinco de Mayo.  At least we got it half right?
