12 Ways to Eat a Margarita

Item 1/1

[slideshow] With Cinco de Mayo just around the corner, our palates are gearing up for some refreshing margaritas. Though the classic margarita is a great staple for the occasion, we want to venture out of the margarita glass and see other ways to enjoy this tasty drink. Whether you want to eat, sip, or dip your margarita, we found some great edible margaritas for you! And we're pretty sure all of these would go just swimmingly with 12 plates of nachos. 1. Margarita Bars: We'll start with the sweet stuff. Put a little twist on your lemon bar recipe, and make some margarita bars! (Recipe and photo: Sugar Crafter) 2. Margarita Cupcakes: These days cupcakes come in every flavor, color, shape, and size you want....so it’s no surprise to find some yummy margarita cupcakes! (Recipe and photo: Jason and Shawnda) 3. Margarita Ice Cream: This ice cream recipe isn’t quite as easy to make as our two-ingredient ice creams, but it sure does look tasty! (Recipe and photo: Recipe Bridge) 4. Margarita Fruit Dip: When I dip, you dip, we dip. Time to make Da Dip - margarita dip that is. ;) (Recipe and photo: Celebrations) 5. Margarita Cookies: Now they don’t get much cuter than this. These margaritas are sure to sparkle! (Recipe and photo: Pink Martinis and Pearls) 6. Margarita Pie: We can’t say no to key lime pie, so how can we say no to margarita pie? All you need for this bit of deliciousness is vanilla ice cream, frozen limeade concentrate and a graham cracker crust (Recipe and photo: Recipe Bridge) 7. Margarita Ice Pops: Need a sneaky way to bring your margarita to the pool or beach? Margarita ice pops are your answer! (Recipe and photo: Hostess With the Mostess 8. Margarita Cheesecake: Cream cheese, margaritas, and pretzels. Sounds like a winning combination to us! (Recipe and photo: Kari's Cooking 9. Margarita Chicken Salad: Put any extra margarita mix you have to good use with this good-lookin’ chicken salad! (Recipe and photo: Shine 10. Margarita Shrimp Bites: Start marinating some shrimp in your margarita (probably not the same one you are drinking:), add some puff pastry and they turn into a zesty appetizer! (Recipe and photo: Recipe Girl) 11. Margarita Glazed Ribs: We want our baby back, baby back, baby back. baby back ribbbbssss.....with margarita glaze. (Recipe and photo: HCG Diet Recipes Made Simple 12. Margarita Shrimp Nachos: “Those are na--chos, they’re mine!” You better grab some fast, because these margarita shrimp nachos will be gone in a flash.
