You know what I think of when I think of warm weather? Cocktails! Fruity, delicious, tangy cocktails! I know what you are thinking. “Hey Justine, you’re a publisher of a blog called Cooking and Beer!” Yes, it is no surprise to anyone that I love craft beer, but I love wine too. I also love a good manhattan and a salty margarita every once in a while! Margaritas are one of my go-to cocktails in the summertime. They are so cool and refreshing, and they are the perfect blank canvas to create any flavor combination you want. These blackberry lime margaritas are the perfect way to ring in spring!
