I don’t even drink that much so I have no idea why I’m sharing this recipe, but I do like matcha, so maybe this could work!

Out of all the cocktails I’ve tried in my lifetime, margaritas hold a special spot on my list. More specifically, frozen margaritas. They’re like the quintessential summer drink if you want a little booze to perk you up. I stumbled upon this recipe on Well + Good and what I like about it is that it’s healthy, too. Scroll down for the recipe.

Prep time: 10 minutes

3 oz. cashew cream (learn how to make your own here)

  6. Pour contents into a cocktail glass of your choice and bring out your (steel) straw.
  7. Wear sunglasses and enjoy!
