The Backstory: Ilise and I hosted a fun and lively Game Night/Taco Night recently which you’ll read more about next week. But the part you need to know right now is this super-tasty cherry margarita. Mm-hm! Tart and refreshing, yes please and thank you.
Many weeks ago we bought a jug of tart cherry juice, used a few tablespoons, and it’s languished in the fridge ever since, waiting for inspiration to strike and make use of the rest of it. God bless inspiration, because this margarita is The Right Answer. Antioxidant-rich too!
