I guess it’s that time to put away our white pants, get back to work or school and realize that the lazy days of summer are over! But before that happens,  we have to have one more celebration. This sweet and savory margarita is a great cocktail to complement any Labor Day BBQ or picnic! Enjoy the long weekend with your friends and family! Milagro tequila available on line at BEVMO.

Cheers!
