Making a Margarita

No matter how you take your margarita, the proper tools are essential in making it!  Here are a few of my favorite tools accompanied by photos from a while back, when we used to have friends over to our house!  I miss my friends and I miss celebrating life’s occasions with them and I can’t wait for the day when we can gather together again!

Justin and I love tequila and send a huge thank you to Casa Dragones for sending over a bottle!  Click here for their Ultimate Margarita recipe.

I’ve also included to family (or crowd) pleasing recipes from my book, Parties Around A Punch Bowl, that are great to serve with margaritas! xo

This slightly sweet and salty guacamole served with tortilla chips is a delectable theme pairing for Margarita!

2 avocados
1 mango
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 cup chopped fresh tomato 1/4 cup lime juice


Combine all ingredients together and serve with tortilla chips.


If you are looking for a festive way to serve your dips, look no further than the mini bell pepper! I love this colorful addition to a tablescape. Slice the bell peppers in half lengthwise and fill with your favorite dips or fillings, such as chicken salad, pimento cheese, or guacamole.

If you want the guests to use chips with their dip, then shift your presentation a little bit by using big bell peppers. Cut the tops off and remove the seeds, fill the peppers with your favorite dips, and scatter the chips around the peppers on a serving platter.
