cinco de mayo

happy 5th of may!  i don’t celebrate mexican heritage so much as my love of margaritas.  so i thought i’d share my recipes for homemade margaritas.  below are the quick and dirty version (easy!) and the all-out-martha-stewart version of sour mix and simple syrup.  add a little tequila and you’re ready to celebrate, amigos!

you know those pre-mixed margarita mixes?  yuck.  too sugary (or high-fructose-corn-syrup-y) and not lime-y enough.  and expensive.  that doesn’t sound like you, does it?!  so skip the costly versions and head on over to the frozen juice aisle, where you’ll find cans of frozen lime-ade.  stock up when they’re on sale and you’ll always have the makin’s for this quick and dirty recipe:

or go all out (best prepared ahead of time so the simple syrup can cool) and wow your friends with this a-maz-ing made from scratch mix.  it really is the best.
