Well everyone, it’s been an interesting week. Mercury is in retrograde and we’re all still recovering from that freak storm that happened on Monday–so, it’s safe to say we could all use a nice, cold bevvy. Today we tried our hand at creating the
Elevated Margarita,
" a traditional recipe by high end tequila company Aviòn. Here’s to summer hours, and a break from extreme weather.
You will need: One bottle of Aviòn tequila One awesome blender that will crush ice, like our fancy KitchenAid 5-Speed Agave nectar Lime juice Salt
