Happy Monday! Although Mondays are definitely not  my favorite day of the week, this Monday is a little different. Why? It’s National Margarita Day! While there’s no real reason or rhyme behind National Margarita Day, who’s going to complain about a day that celebrates such a deliciously tropical tequila beverage?

Here’s a simple but sumptuous recipe for a perfect-every-time Margarita. If you want to jazz it up, try adding a little fruit juice or cucumber slices! The sky is your limit! Comment below or tweet me at @Shes_Influential and let me know how you’re celebrating!


½ Cup Lemon Juice

½ Cup Lime Juice

1 Cup Tequila

1 Cup Triple Sec or Grand Marnier

4 cup ice cubes

2 Tbsp Honey

2 Whole Limes, 1 Sliced into Rounds


Place all the ingredients including just one of the limes into a blender and blend until ice is crushed and drink is smooth.

Pour into 4 margarita glasses and garnish with a lime round
