ChocoMintArita Macarons

Yes, I did it again… I created another margarita/tequila inspired macaron.

I’m sure you would have taken exactly the same course of action if someone invited you to a “Ladies Night In” event sponsored by Sauza Tequila right?

This month’s Mactweets – Mac Attack Theme as you can tell by the title of this post is dedicated to Summer Flicks.
