Watch me make this live on Nom!
Now I don’t know about you but I love love love a good margarita…..hence the name of my site
lol. I love them on the rocks, frozen, with salt or sugar! And I’m always trying to create new
recipes to cure my margarita cravings. Another thing I love is incorporating fresh fruit into my
drinks as much as possible. Last year on my blog I created a fresh fruit cocktail series and
made cocktails that featured fresh fruit instead of the heavy sugary mixes you buy at the grocery
A few years ago I was brunching in D.C. and I had a drink that was infused with thyme…..I took one sip and thought this is absolutely delicious lol, I have never been able to forget that experience and so I started infusing herbs into my drinks a couple years ago and never looked back. So in case you are thinking this drink may not be as good as it sounds trust me IT IS! Try it and I think you will love it.
The recipe is super easy and takes no time at all. If you have a juicer that is great but for those
who don’t feel free to use my blender and strainer method; it works just as good. Also I like to
serve my cocktails in short “rocks” glasses so if you need to double the recipe for a larger
margarita glass go ahead and do so. This recipe is fun, trendy, and fabulous! If you make this drink your friends will be impressed and totally pleased 🙂
