Margarita for Mama

#BrunchWeek Logo


Mother’s Day is next Sunday and in honor of Mom, I have joined a group of food bloggers in celebrating #BrunchWeek, providing ideas for how you can make mom’s day super special. I’ll be posting today, Wednesday, and Saturday, but others will be filling the calendar with lots of yummy treats, so you’ll want to visit them, too.


To start out, I have a simple margarita recipe for you. Because why should mimosas corner the market on morning cocktails? A margarita is perfect any time of day–after all, citrus is good for you, right?! Cheers!
