Celebrate National Tequila Day With These Yummy Recipes

Did you know that today is National Tequila Day? No? Well me either! And as a true tequila lover I was extremely disappointed that I had no idea! So this morning I went straight to my Pinterest Board so I could find some of the tequila recipes I've pinned and share them with you! Hopefully I can try a few today with Bill!

 Cucumber JalapeƱo Margarita
This is one of my favorite cocktails ever - but I've never actually infused tequila with jalapeƱos before. This recipe makes it seem super easy. The refreshing cucumber paired with the spicy pepper... oh man. Delish!

Strawberry Margarita Spritzer
This recipe mixes two of my favorite things.. tequila and bubbles :) Although it sounds yummy there would be a few tweeks I'd want to make. I'd use fresh berries instead of frozen.. I'd also try to figure out something else to use besides the Daiquiri mix (I'm sure it's good but so much sugar!) I also wonder if you could use champagne or prosecco without altering the taste too much.

Skinny Beer-Garitas
I do love my drinks. But sometimes margaritas have sooooo much sugar that I just know I shouldn't have more than 1. This recipe uses splenda (which is not my fav) but would be good to try when you're looking for something that doesn't have a ton of sugar

Citrus Margarita Spring Popsicle with edible flowers
Lately, I've been really into popsicle recipes. I have been obsessing over them! My favorites are turning drinks into icy goodness. Have you seen these edible flowers floating (hah - couldn't help myself) around the internet? They're so cute! And this pucker-up recipe is the perfect excuse to start using both popsicles molds and the edible flowers! Would be so pretty for a summer party!

Cherry Beer Margaritas
I have serious crush on cherry flavored drinks - probably stems from my love for Shirley Temples at such a young age. This recipe combines, cherry 7-Up, beer & tequila... could you ask for anything better?

Do you plan on celebrating #NationalTequilaDay?! Share your favorite recipes!
