This margarita is all about nostalgia — and great flavors, of course.
The minute you taste this delicious margarita, it will bring back childhood memories of drinking a Shirley Temple. Even though this Shirley Temple is made for adults, it still comes with the classic maraschino cherries.
When I was a kid, one of my favorite things about enjoying a Shirley Temple was eating the cherry. And now that I’m a big kid, I still love the cherries, which is why I put extra in this margarita.
So when you’re feeling nostalgic, make yourself a Shirley Temple with a spiked twist to it, margarita style. And don’t forget to add extra cherries.
