Margarita Monday!

I love mixing drinks. Finding my own recipes to a classic and adding my twist to it is just exciting! Tonight I made margaritas, my best so far, if I may say so myself. Technically, this is a Rum Rita, but who can ever say no a to any type of margarita. The recipe is super easy and takes about five minutes to make. It is the perfect way to unwind from a hectic Monday. I hope you like it. Scratch that, I hope you love it!

Flore's Radical Ritas

Makes Two
• 3 ounces Captain Morgan Lime Rum 
• 1 ounce Triple Sec
• 2 ounces of Lime Juice (or juice from 5 limes) 
• 1-3 ounces Simple Syrup
• Ice
• Rimming Salt or Sugar

I like my margaritas blended so just add all your ingredients in a blender and ice to your taste. You can add Tequila instead of Rum if you wish. This recipe was made especially for my father, he likes sweeter drinks so if you don't just at 1 ounce of syrup or none. Once everything is blended to the consistency that you want, moisten the rim of the glass with a lime and dip in salt. Then sit back, relax and pretend that you are on the beach in Cabo. 

I hope this has made your Monday a little less manic! If you have any good recipes that you would like to share, please do. I love new recipes!
