Fresh Cherry Margaritas

Fresh Cherry Margaritas – I definitely, definitely love a good margarita and summer is the perfect time to whip up a batch of your favorite variety and enjoy the deliciousness that is tequila + lime + fruit. This spin adds fresh cherries and I have to say, it ranks in my top 3 favorite types of margaritas that I’ve ever had. (Just behind a traditional margarita and a strawberry margarita.)

While pitting cherries is kind of tedious, these beauties definitely make it worthwhile. 🙂
