"Revenge of the Red Widow" Margarita





 
Sweet Women gone bad,
out for vengeance on people that have hurt their love ones.
Two of my new favorite shows,
with sweet Emily Thorne avenging the death of her father,
she's out for vengeance for the people that have destroyed her family,
and
a sweet devoted wife and mother of 3 beautiful children, 
had to rethink life as she knows it after her drug-trafficking husband was gunned down.
She later finds herself pulled into the drug business because of forces outside her control.
Taking on mobsters, and FBI Agents to uncover the truth about the death of her husband. 
 
It is  "inauthentic and misguided" as what The Hollywood Reporter had said,
Guess what Hollywood Reporter?
There's a reason why it's called
 
I love twisted shows, my husband hates it.
He thinks this is the reason for my nightmares.
LOL!

So in honor of the shows that is the reason for my nightmares
 (according to my sweet husband),
I have created this beautiful delicious drink.
A sweet tangy strawberry and blood orange drink
with a bit of ginger spice to it,
 mix in with the fresh clean flavor with a hint of oak of Patron Reposado Tequila.
