Margaritas

***The simple syrup has to steep for at least 4 hours or up to 24 hours***

Well after a hectic work week what better way to celebrate the weekend by having a freshly made margarita on Margarita day!

I am not a big drinker but I like the occasional mixed drink on special occasions or after a tough week at the office (like this week). And just like my food, I must have the purest of ingredients in my mixed drinks as well! This margarita recipe uses real fruit juice, with none of those pre-made mixes. Let me know what you think. Enjoy!
