Did you know that margaritas are the most popular cocktail in the US?

Well, I didn’t until now, but I can see why! The citrusy drink is slightly tangy, a little sweet, and packs a punch of tequila.

When it comes to margaritas I’m not necessarily a purist, but I do almost always drink mine on the rocks. I firmly held that belief until recently when I made an incredible discovery: Lime Sherbet Margaritas.

This simple twist on traditional margaritas uses lime sherbet for the base and tastes like a dream! They’re so easy to make too – just throw everything into your blender!

I could spend all day sitting next to a pool drinking these! I may just need to order some of those adorable little drink umbrellas for my next batch…
