Key West Margarita

Key West Margarita recipe

The Key West Margarita is a tasty blended margarita recipe that uses Midori and pina colada. This makes for a flavor that’s smooth and bold with just a touch of lime to wake it up. The dash of grenadine adds just a hint of berry. This is a terrific drink for the poolside – or […]

Cadillac Margarita recipe

What makes the Cadillac Margarita special is the Reposado tequila. Reposado is “reposed” or calm/relaxed in Spanish – it’s at the first stage of aging for a tequila.
