It's finally starting to feel like spring in New York- maybe?
When its warm out and sunny long after work gets out, instead of having a warm and cozy dinner, a fresh margarita and some guac always sounds right. I mean who doesn't love a margarita with guac?
For my first marg of the season, I wanted to share something refreshing and bright- inspired by one of my favorite places to eat at- Babu Ji. While their original is great, I, of course, added my own little spin with a touch of jalapeno-I love a spicy drink.
So here's to spring, warmer days, and a taste of the summer to come.
