A to-die-for margarita

Happy almost weekend, friends! This lucky girl has tomorrow off of work and is San Francisco bound for a reunion with two of my best friends, and I could not be more excited.

If you are looking for some awesome weekend activities, check out these great suggestions from the Go To It blog.

As an avid tequila drinker (yes, my drink of choice is a tequila sunrise, please don't judge) I was not about to pass up the opportunity to celebrate. And to make it even better, Ole Restaurant Group was running a promotion -- any margarita purchase yesterday came with a free order of guac. Yum.

Usually, I like my margaritas blended, but the Hibiscus margarita that I ordered, made on the rocks with Espolon Silver tequila, Hibiscus syrup, and lime juice, decorated with a delicious cinnamon sugar rim, was incredible. Not too strong that all I could taste was tequila, but powerful enough that I left the restaurant with a perfect buzz. I've found that's a rare combination, and I truly appreciate bartenders who can find that happy medium. It came with a hefty $11 price tag, but once in a while, I think splurging on a to-die-for drink is okay.

Our salsa & guac were delish and the ambiance at the bar was great. Overall, a perfect after work drink spot that I highly recommend! I've also been here for dinner, and though the entrees are pricey, the guac is made fresh to order which is difficult, if not impossible, to resist. I especially love this restaurant in the summer, when the patio is open and you can drink your margaritas in the fresh air. I know it's going to be in the 50s again today, but I think that just makes me yearn for May that much more.

Happy weekend!
