It’s A Fiesta! // Best Healthy Margarita Recipes for Cinco De Mayo

Any holiday that combines tacos and margaritas is one the clover team is here for - and it just so happens Cinco de Mayo falls on a Friday this year. We’ve rounded up three of our favorite (and healthy!) margarita recipes for all your celebration needs. Tequila is the healthiest alcohol after all - just be sure to use 100% agave, blanco tequila. Ole! Healthy ‘Classic’ Margarita // Recipe via Gimme Some Oven

We’re having serious *heart eyes* for this spin on the traditional margarita using green juice. We highly recommend Renew Juicery’s Glow for just the right amount of sweetness. It definitely cancels out the alcohol, right?
