Blood Orange Popsicles in Jalapeño Margarita’s

Blood Orange Jalapeño Margarita

HAPPY CINCO DE MAYO! The perfect excuse to over indulge on margaritas and Mexican traditions. I’ve teamed up with some amazing food bloggers to bring you the ultimate list of margaritas – trust me there is something for everyone! They’ll all be linked below so you can peruse and see what tickles your fancy (I’ve always wanted to say that- you bet it was in a British accent). This is basically my favorite holiday because me and Tequila are BFF’s – I know she doesn’t get along with everyone but we love each other! With that being said – I’m sure you’re wondering what kind of margarita I’ve come up with for you. Since I’m the girl that asks the waiter for hot sauce to pour into my margaritas at restaurants, I decided on a lime jalapeno margarita with a blood orange popsicle – because they’re in season (duh). Citrus and tequila go perfectly together – it’s the whole     spicy, sour, sweet thing all up in your taste buds. Leave a comment below if you decide to try it, I’d love some feedback!
