I am obsessed with FRESH FRUIT during the summertime!  Pair it up with rum and I’m ecstatic.

Frozen Coconut Pineapple Margarita

Oh. My. Word.

Coconut Spiced Iced Coffee Cocktail

Coconut Spiced Iced Coffee Cocktail

Raspberry Beer Margaritas

Raspberry Beer Margaritas

I think I have just made my new favorite beer margarita that’s made in a pitcher to serve a crowd:  Raspberry Beer Margaritas. With Cinco de Mayo approaching, I’ve been racking my brain on a good margarita to make.  I can’t take ALL the credit for this, though.  I leisurely asked Taylor for ideas on [...]
