I told you recently that Cinco de Mayo was one of my all-time favorite holidays to bake for, so I couldn’t help but share another great and festive recipe. A true Fiesta isn’t complete without a limey margarita right? It’s one of the only cocktails that I can drink without immediately getting sleepy afterwards, so honestly it’s what I choose any night I want to have fun. (Which lets be honest, is only once in a rare while for this homebody.)
These bars are essentially the same concept as lemon bars, but with lime filling and plenty tequila mixed into the batter. They are easy to make, a beautiful limey color (thanks to a drop of food coloring) and the perfect festive treat for a weekend celebration. Most of the tequila cooks out of the bars in the oven, but just enough of the flavor remains to make these super margarita-y without being overly boozy. Olé!
