A lot of people like to live by the motto, “It’s 5 o’clock somewhere.” Thriving when you’re off the clock is how some make it through the day. One of the most refreshing cocktails you can make that will make you feel like you’re on an island somewhere or you’re somewhere south of the border is a margarita. Margaritas can be made in a variety of ways, including frozen or on the rocks. You can make it fresh yourself or use a mix to serve one up quickly. You can even make them spicy or mild and mix up the flavorings as well. Using some tequila will get you ready to go and we’ve highlighted some other margarita making supplies that you’ll need to enjoy the best kind of relaxing cocktail there is. Check out our list and live like Jimmy Buffett would want you to.
