Yes, You Can Have a Margarita Ice Cream Float!

 

Happy Drink-o de Mayo!

While shamelessly shoveling taco-after-taco down our throats, the only reason we ever want to pause is to wash everything down with an ice-cold margarita. Am I right? Or am I right?

But the regular ol’ tequila, lime juice, and salt mixture gets boring after a few drinks. This holiday, impress your amigos with one of these five fascinating takes on the quintessential tequila cocktail.

Scroll through and embrace the brilliance.

Going to a BYOB party? Here’s a slight spin on the popular drink. Rather than taking your fancy, salted glass and potentially losing it, freeze the marg in a portable pouch to enjoy at your friend’s house, the beach, or pool.

The parties haven’t started yet, so there’s still time to run to the supermarket and pick up some ingredients to concoct one of these non-O.G. margaritas. But there need not be a celebration to enjoy these delightful treats – have one just because!
