Habanero Pineapple Margarita

Did you know today was National Margarita Day?

I KNOW, RIGHT!?

DSC_0644-1I have no idea how I missed the memo, but it became my life’s mission this afternoon to dream up a cocktail. With a little inspiration from Jessica over at How Sweet It Is, I concocted this little gem.

The verdict? My husband thought it tasted too strongly of pineapple, but I liked it just right. If you’re wary of the flavor combo, go easy and wing it. I just won’t be held responsible for your drink (because I’m already holding mine! hey-o!!!) Happy Friday, everyone!
