I am not super into mixed drinks but I do think they are pretty (just look at these pictures) and I always order a margarita when I go to On the Boarder with my mom. I have never made a mixed drink at home and I thought that needed to change especially when I get my cute bar cart to hold all the pretty liqueur bottles that I will own (starting with that pretty bottle of tequila I picked up for this post!) With summer sneaking up on us, my friend encouraged me to try a new spin on a typical margarita – a coconut margarita! Seriously, all this baby needs is a beach and the summer sun! YUM.
