You will love that you can take these Margarita Scones with you anywhere you’d like because you won’t need to hide it in a paper bag and look like you are sneaking around with some unlawful substance you’re not supposed to have on the street.

Margaritas are my favorite drink!

I do often wish I could walk around with one, it must be that delicious lime taste along with the salt. I have mentioned before how much I love salt, right?

These scones are the perfect combination of all the wonderful taste of a great Margarita.

If you like lemon scones,these will give you a run for your money!

I didn’t forget one of the best part of eating scones, it’s curd….if you have lemon scones, lemon curd is delicious.
