12 Ways to Eat a Margarita
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.
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)
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)
Have a Happy Cinco de Mayo, hopefully with many forms of margarita in hand! Do send your Cinco de Mayo food and drink our recipes by leaving a note in the comments below or on Twitter.

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
