It’s Friday, it’s sunny, it’s time for margaritas! This week I was inspired by those slices of mango that we eat in the summer that are sprinkled with spicy salt and are basically the simplest, best thing ever. Add tequila and it’s a match made in heaven. These margaritas will leave you feeling nice and relaxed for a lovely weekend.
So cheers! To sunny days, tasty drinks and a good weekend!
