happy friday!

i’m kicking off the pretty in palm springs friday cocktail series with the most delicious (and simple) margarita! truth be told, i have never been a lover of tequila (gasp), but this combo of fresh lime and smokey agave completely changed my perspective. i love the tart bite of lime in this drink, but if you like a slightly sweeter libation, i suggest adding a few drops of agave syrup. tart, refreshing and strong-a perfect start to your weekend!

we’ll be sipping on these and toasting to homeownership with friends on sunday. hope you all get a chance to enjoy a few poolside this weekend!

1 shot tequila (I prefer a smokier variety like casa noble special reserve )
.5 shot of Cointreau
juice of one lime

rocks, drink, repeat.
