Peach Margarita


This is a recipe from years ago from the bar menu at The Ravenous Pig, that originally appeared in the magazine in 2013. It’s still a favorite of ours, and a perfect party starter in the warm spring and summer months! It would also be a perfect pairing for our Fish and Tropical Salsa.
