When it comes to my love for boozy drinks, my love for margaritas is unparalleled. I’m honestly a bit appalled that this is my first recipe for one on the blog. I like them tart, strong, on the rocks and with a sugared rim versus a salted rim. That’s how I roll. This particular recipe was inspired by a guava margarita I had last spring at the local restaurant Trattoria Fratelli during our crazy Feast of St. Pizza.

We realized that we could hardly remember what all we had done at the beginning of the trip, so we had to get it all written down before it became totally impossible to remember. It’s a good thing we did, because otherwise this post would not be nearly as thorough. [Read more…]
