Wow. Who has gone to the dentist with your child to get a cavity filled? How about 4 cavities filled!? OMG. Coco was all crocodile tears and drilling today and now I need a drink.

She may have inherited deeply grooved molars from one of her parents (sorry baby girl!!!) that result in childhood cavities no matter how much you brush. Pia inherited her fathers cavity free to this day teeth. Sigh. It’s so unfair. Cavities are not cool and I am glad I have not had one since I was a child- but still the memories haunt me!

Good thing I have these margaritas to soothe away my bad memories, right?? Tequila will often do things like that…

And these are not just any tequila laden margs. These are the golden standard of delicious, fresh, fruity summer margaritas. THESE are what you should be serving your friends when they come over for drinks. These kick ass.

Sweet ripe juicy peaches, which are everywhere right now, team up with spicy hot Serrano chili’s and make every sip a sweet and delicious burn (which I personally REALLY enjoy.) Try these and you will be so happy.

NOTE! If you are nervous about the spicy factor. Start with a little bit of the chili in the syrup. Puree and then taste and add more until you are comfortable with the burn level! You might find you want even more!
