Fizzy Lime MargaritasSitting here in my chilly apartment, staring out at the overcast skies, sunny Mexico seems like a long ways away. I have 10 more long days to wait before I board my Air Canada flight, first to Cuba for a week and  half, then to Mexico for another week and a half. While I anxiously wait for the next 10 days to pass I will be dreaming of beaches and sunshine while sipping on lime margaritas.

Fizzy Lime MargaritasI have to admit, I’m writing this post in advance. Just like I did with the Coconut Raspberry Mojito Jello Shooters and the Aji Guacamole. I feel a little bit funny about this, like I’m somehow not being quite honest with you. Here I am saying that I’m in my chilly apartment (which I am as I write), but I’m actually on a sunny beach (when you’re reading this.)

I feel better now that I’ve shared that with you. 

If I could read the future, I’d say there are lots of lime margaritas in store for me. I hope I’m not wrong.

This version of a traditional margarita is a lot lighter, less boozy and slightly fizzy. I’m tempted to call it a margarita spritzer, but that just sounds too girly. Tart lime, strong tequila and fizzy soda water come together to make a refreshing summer cocktail. This would be equally as good sipped on your backyard patio as it would on a beach in Mexico.
