Boozy Margarita Smoothies #BrunchWeek

by Erin

Next time you’re blending up your favorite smoothie, tip some tequila in there and serve it as a brunch cocktail!

Boozy Margarita Smoothies 1


For the first 3 years of blogging, I shared obnoxious birthday treats on this day (just scroll down and take a gander at my list of previous years posts right before the recipe). Some how all 5 years I’ve neglected to remember to make something Star Wars themed for today even though I actively celebrate it almost as much as my birthday. And now we also have #BrunchWeek to throw into the mix!

Last year was actually the first year that #BrunchWeek landed on my birthday and I made cute scone cakes. This year let’s celebrate Cinco de Mayo a day early in addition to the rest of the mayhem. So how do you feel about… boozy margarita smoothies! After my wine smoothie success I had to take it a step further with another type of alcohol smoothie. And it was a glorious step. Who’s in for a Mexican themed brunch menu? Mexican eggs benedict anyone?

My hubby makes smoothies most days, but your recipe blows his out of the water. Yum!

Wow, Erin! I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to realize that we share the same birthday (except I’m 40 years older than you). It’s probably not fair to make that comment without telling you that I’ve changed my email address (formerly mrsluckystone).

This margarita smoothie sounds absolutely perfect, something I’ll definitely make. Too bad I didn’t get it for the big day.

I’ll be resubscribing with my new email address.

Happy birthday! What a lovely smoothie for your special day—I’m glad there’s no greens involved ;)

Thanks Liz! I actually thought about sneaking in some greens but I decided to skip it.
