| Spiced Strawberry Margarita |
Happy Friday! As we head into the holiday weekend, we are all watching the forecast. Again. This will be the fourth weekend in five weeks that calls for rain. Argh! What is up with this weather? I’m keeping my fingers crossed that we’ll have windows of sunshine, especially on Monday for the parades! Even if it rains we have “backup” plans that will allow us to take the fun inside.
On Monday we’ll be raising a glass to the brave men and women that have fought to protect our freedom. We’ll be making a special toast to honor and remember those who have served in the military. I always want a special cocktail for these occasions, so I’ve whipped up a batch of Spiced Strawberry Margaritas courtesy of LaForce. The recipe is included below.
I hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend! I’ll be taking Monday off, see you on Tuesday xo
