Rose Water Margaritas

Rose Water Margaritas

In lieu of National Tequila Day, I wanted to mix it up and create something a little less traditional. Though I'm not a big drinker myself, when I do drink, my drink of choice is tequila. And to not get loose on the booze I decided to pair it up with rose water . So, let's celebrate this caliente holiday with something a little more soothing and of higher vibration like Rose Water Margaritas.

Rose water has incredible benefits to the body and the skin, and this drinkable version I made myself works great as a toner too!
