Hint of Almond Margaritas {Recipe}

With Cinco de Mayo celebrations happening tomorrow, I thought it was finally time to share my famous margarita recipe!  This is actually my mom's (as most of my best recipes are), but I added my own flair.  The almond extract is what really make these margs special & will have everyone asking "ooh, what's in here?!"  The original recipe calls for almond syrup, but I found it added an extra sweetness that I wasn't looking for.  Almond extract keeps the overall sweetness down and allows for a little more wiggle room in how much almond flavor you actually want.  And I want a lot!!!


I also jazz up the salted rim by using kosher salt & mixing in a little sugar with it.  The salty/sweet combo is perfect!  Throw a lime wedge on the rim and sip (trying not to chug) down this little bit of tequila goodness!  Here's the recipe friends!  Please let me know if you make a batch; It's makes my old bartending heart happy! :-)


Hint of Almond Margaritas
1 cup tequila
1/4 cup triple sec
1 tbsp almond extract (give or take...)
1/2 can frozen limeade
ice

Blend all those wonderful ingredients together and serve!



Hope you all have a margarita & guacamole filled Cinco de Mayo!
Cheers!
