We think that this peach margarita recipe will help beat your autumn blues with each sweet, summery sip. Come this time of year, we can all feel a little down about the weather. Longer nights and chilly temperatures make us miss the warmth and light of the summer. Just close your eyes and pretend you are on a warm beach, sipping margaritas with sand between your toes listening to the soft crashing of waves. (Can you tell we really miss the summer?)
Say goodbye to the autumn blues and hello to this fruity margarita
Although store-bought peaches might not be as good as fresh ones from your local farmer’s market, they’ll do the trick to bring a little brightness to your day. Combining citrus juices in this cocktail helps to round out the sweetness of the peaches with a little bit of tartness. We used fresh squeezed orange and lime juice to make this drink, and the effort was worthwhile. Feel free to use whatever citrus juices you have on hand!
