Key Lime Margarita With Cayenne

garden cocktails key lime margarita

Also delicious when you sprinkle the cayenne on top of the drink! Made this when I was in Texas a few weeks back when I was visiting. Don’t see key limes in the NYC groceries very often so need to take advantage when in Texas. While we were at the HEB grocery, I also saw a Buddha’s hand fruit and my Midwestern self had NO idea that these existed!
