feels like summer. [fresh citrus margarita]

Okay, I know it’s only March, but I was really craving a margarita the other day and these hit the spot and got me so excited for summer. This margarita is dangerously delicious and beyond refreshing with all of the fresh citrus – freshly squeezed orange juice, lime juice and lemon juice. There’s a lot of juicing involved with this recipe (especially if you’re making more than two cocktails), but it is SO worth it!
