margaritas, tacos & best friends

there isn't much better than good food and best friends.
i made margaritas for sunday brunch this weekend.
they paired perfectly with a few cilantro egg and black bean tacos.
this was my first time making fresh margaritas and they were delicious.
find my recipes for both below...

fresh margaritas
4 lemons

agave tequila
1 tbsp agave syrup
several drops of real orange extract
sea salt

lime slice for garnish

makes 4ish drinks

juice the lemons and limes. pour into a small glass pitcher and stir. add just enough tequila to the pitcher to double the amount of liquid and stir. add just a few small drops of orange extract and agave syrup. add ice and stir until chilled.
pour a small amount of rose's sweetened lime juice onto a small saucer.
grind sea salt over another small saucer.
dip rim of glass into rose's lime juice. then into salt, pressing firmly so salt will stick.
fill glass with ice. strain margarita mix over ice. garnish with lime and serve immediately.
