Come With Your Choice of Fresh Cactus Fruit, Watermelon, Blood Orange, Mango, Pomegranate or Guava, Shaken and Served On The Rocks
If I think I’m eating or drinking something healthy AND the presentation is somewhat cute, then I’m pretty much guaranteed to love it. I don’t know about you, but a fresh squeezed mango marg sounds like the perfect date night drink to me.

Tortilla Republic’s Margarita Bar is so impressive, I’m tempted to give my landlord a two week notice, pack up all my sh*t and forcibly move myself into their bar area. Okay but seriously Google their menu right now, and if that isn’t enough incentive, then their hot bartender absolutely is.

For The Broke Broad
Since we all know by now that Beyoncé wasn’t exactly referring to literal watermelon in her hit, “Drunk in Love” when she sang “I’ve been drinking watermelon”, I give to you a watermelon marg recipe that you’re guaranteed to feel much more PG about- okay, maybe PG-13 with the tequila. With my subpar blender, watermelon I found in the fridge and some left over Jose Cuervo in the freezer, I threw all of the ingredients together and whipped my margarita surprisingly quickly.
Find the recipe here on myrecipes.com!!
So by now I’m a few homemade watermelon margs deep, and I’m even more in love with tequila than I was at the start of this post. Honestly, I hate cooking, cleaning and anything that has to do with domesticity, so once I sober up my boyfriend and I are hitting the bars to have a supremely more authentic experience. Tortilla Republic- we’re comin for ya.
