Alright you guys, I have officially found my new favorite margarita

Last week I scoured the internet for a signature cocktail to serve at my roll-your-own sushi dinner party and came across a handful of recipes that piqued my interest. I ended up adapting and blending a few recipes together to come up with the perfect Lemongrass Ginger Margarita!

These Lemongrass Ginger margaritas are crisp, refreshing and packed with flavor. If you’re looking for the perfect combination of lightly sweet and slightly tangy with a deliciously smooth finish, you will love these!

Note: Tracking down lemongrass was surprisingly difficult. I ran to several grocery stores before finding it at Whole Foods. But this ingredient is totally worth the extra errand!
