What's the best part of brunch? C'mon. You know what it is.
Yep, it's the only socially acceptable time you can booze it up before noon. Isn't it grand?

This margarita blends in perfectly with any brunch spread. It's fruity, mild, but packs a bit of a punch. Feel free to make on the rocks, but I prefer blended because it feels extra fancy.

  5. Oh thank god there's no eggs or bacon in this. I saw "breakfast margarita" and my mind wandered. I am absolutely a proponent of drinking before noon, brunch or not (i'm the mother of a 4 and 2 year old)...

    These look delicious!!
