When the fifth of May rolls around, you know it's time to break out your blender: Margarita season has officially commenced. It's as good of an excuse as any to break out the tequila, salt and fruit of your choice to mix up a sour-sweet cocktail. Viva México, viva margaritas! Here's what to make:
Key lime margaritas
Just like the pie, only drinkable. Consider adding a crushed graham cracker rim to your glass for extra pie-ness. Get the recipe here.
Blood orange margarita
The most beautiful citrus makes this margarita glow. Beware of temptation to drink the entire batch. Get the recipe here.
Pomegranate kombucha margarita
This fermented kombucha cocktail is basically health food, right? Get the recipe here.
Frozen avocado margarita
Who needs guac when you have frozen cocktails with avocado in them? Okay, get extra avocados so you can have both. Corn chip rim anyone? Get the recipe here.
Get a kickstart on summer drinking with this fruity, refreshing watermelon margarita. Garnish with extra fruit, of course, and don't forget you can use the empty watermelon rind as a punch bowl... Get the recipe here.
