Just because it’s fall doesn’t mean you have to give up your juicy margaritas on the weekends! We’re so happy to have Lauren Lester of Wicked Spatula on BFFF to share her vanilla pear margarita recipe with us. This yummy margarita is the perfect transition from summer to winter, we will definitely be drinking these during a small party with friends or a dinner date on the patio! We love that these margaritas not only look and taste amazing, but they are ridiculously easy. Check out Lauren’s recipe below, you can thank us later!

“When you think about margaritas you probably imagine sipping on a tropical concoction in the sun on a warm summers day, correct? Well not anymore. My tequila loving heart was not about to give up my precious Margarita Monday’s just because the air turned cool! I’ve come up with a festive fall-inspired margarita that I know you’re going to love!

This Vanilla Pear margarita has all the best things a normal margarita would have, tequila and lemon (instead of lime) juice. Throw in a little pear juice, fresh vanilla bean, honey, and some cinnamon, and I guarantee you’ll be sipping this lovely drink all the way through fall!”
