One of my favorite home away from homes is Mexico! I love being embraced in the culture, food, drinks, and beautiful scenery. Coming from Texas, we have a lot of Tex- Mex around but nothing is better than fresh authentic Mexican food and a fresh squeezed Margarita!

I discovered my all time favorite margarita at the Ritz Carlton Cancun. During our stay, we joined a margarita mixing class and to this day- I still make the same recipe for all my parties!

The Ritz Carlton Margarita

Milagro Anejo
Napoleon Manderine Orange
Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice
Simple Syrup (sugar and water mix)
Lime Slices (garnish)
Orange slice (garnish)

Prepare glass with salting the rim (optional) and ice. Add ice, 1.5 shots of Anejo and Napoleon liquor in cocktail shaker. Add 1.5 shots of fresh squeezed lime juice. Add 1/2 shot of simple syrup and shake. Pour over prepared glass. Garnish with orange or lime slices. Enjoy!

To dress up the bar cart, I used our Otomi line from Deck your Table (which will be available online in May) Yay! I used bright vibrant florals and a cute pom pom garland to dress the cart up.

Cheers! I hope you will love this margarita as much as I do! Let me know your thoughts!

Until next time,
Whitney Elaine
