Lemon Shrub Margarita || Cocktail Series
If I can be honest for a second, my favorite part of summer is the lazy summer cocktail you treat yourself as the sun slowly sets in the late evening on a Friday. That cool drink refreshes you and lets you relax from a stressful week. So this summer, in celebration of the new blog, I'll be showcasing a new cocktail recipe on the blog every Friday.
First recipe is done in part to QC Malt new malted beverage Lemon Shrub. I've been having a blast photographing this and their other brew, Old Dutch (some of those images are being showcased next week!)
I wanted the first of the series to be a great start to summer, and I can't think of something more summery than a frozen margarita. When I was a kid, slushies were my jam and the frozen margarita makes a pretty great adult beverage substitute.
