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.
For these Margarita Scones Margarita Curd was a must have.
Fruit Curd is so delicious, scones are almost naked with out them!
