Skinny Lemon Margarita

Oh my margs! I have such a love/hate relationship with you. I absolutely love a good homemade marg but I cannot for the life of me order one at a restaurant with out completely micromanaging the bar tender. Like, I'm not trying to drink juice with a drop of tequila in it!

I have pretty much perfected the at home marg and love switching up the flavors from time to time. I am a huge lemon fan and these Skinny Lemon Margaritas really hit the spot on a warm day... well, any day really!

Skinny Lemon Margarita

1 1/2 Ounces Silver Tequila
3 Tablespoons Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
1 1/2 Tablespoons Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice
1 Teaspoon Light Agave Nectar
Kosher Salt for the Rim

Rim you glass with salt. Fill the glass with ice and set aside. Fill a cocktail shaker or mason jar with more ice and all other ingredients. Tightly close the shaker or jar and shake like crazy. Pour the cocktail into the glass and drink up!

Easter Brunch Ideas

I love love love Easter! For the last two years we have been moving on Easter. Ugh.. talk about annoying. It just really puts a damper on my festivity planning. Well, I guess I can still plan right? Here's my dream Easter Sunday all wrapped up in one post!

Brunch is a must! Am I right? We are talking all the things, drinks, appetizers, cake... all of it! Let's start with the cocktail because why not!

This Spring Seasoned cocktail by @elle_talk screams spring time! Hello Elderflower, Rose and Black Pepper. I'll take two!

As you know, apps are my jam! I live for a good appetizer and to be honest I just cant get over these Treager Smoked Deviled Eggs. Sprinkle on a little everything but the bagel spice and call it a meal.

@thedefined dish just took Caprese Salad to a whole new level by adding asparagus and burrata. I think we have all died and gone to heaven. This woman is a goddess in the kitchen and this salad proves it!

Brunch wouldn't be brunch without cake! @howsweeteats speaks to my soul with this Pistachio Carrot Cake. Its the perfect marriage of flavors and I'm here for it.

Now get to cooking and we'll talk later!
