National Margarita Day

There’s nothing like waking up on a lazy Sunday morning to find out that it’s National Margarita Day! How this glorious event almost slipped by me is unimaginable since margaritas are my go-to cocktail when I’m not certain how an establishment makes a perfectly pink pomtini.

Talk about gathering  round the water cooler!  🙂

I wrote a post on how to decorate margarita cookies but this time I made the… [Read More]

They’re not just for Cinco de Mayo anymore. Do you like traditional margaritas or strawberry?Let’s start with the cookie garnishes for margaritas. I wanted to have a little sparkle. What better place than on the garnish?Strawberries! I used a small strawberry cutter then iced the cookies in red. While the icing was still wet I covered them with Dicso Dust in Strawberry.You must cover them completely to get this effect. The random sprinkle will look like a random sprinkle. No… [Read More]
