Margaritas have been a fav of ours this summer, and we're keeping the summer feeling going as long as possible with this deliciously refreshing drink
Made with classic margarita ingredients and the added bonus of a honey simple syrup and fresh basil, these honey basil margaritas are incredibly refreshing and the perfect mix of sweet, sour, and salty.
This is a cocktail made for sunset-watching on the beach, end of summer barbecues, or something quick and delicious to relax and unwind with at the end of a busy day.
