The Classic Frozen Margarita

No party is complete without the Classic Frozen Margarita made with Jose Cuervo Gold.  It is a perfectly sweet frozen cocktail (with a simple recipe) that will transport you to Margaritaville!

This Classic Margarita is just what the doctor ordered and I could hear him in my head as I was sitting out next to my beautiful garden with Margaritaville playing in my head.  {{Love ya Dr. Jimmy!}}

"I blew out my flip-flop
Stepped on a pop-top
Cut my heel, had to cruise on back home
But there's booze in the blender
And soon it will render
That frozen concoction that helps me hang on"

Some sounds and smells take you back to fond memories and this combination was one.  Visiting in Florida we went to Orlando with my family.  It rained like crazy, I broke my flip flops and we ran into Margaritaville.  It was such a great time!  I remember that Margarita as it was the first one I ever had.  Well, Chad's was even better!

Hope you enjoy, and may your Margarita transport you somewhere fabulous!


With love from our simple kitchen to yours.
