The Mighty Cherry Margarita

In spirit of Cinco de Mayo yesterday, we wanted to share one of our favorite margarita recipes! This recipe is great for warm summer days by the pool or at a backyard bbq. They are great to make when its cherries season and we can buy cherries at our local farmers market. The cherries are just SO sweet and fresh!
