A Belizean Happy Hour at Home: Citrus Margarita

by Vivian Roe

Happy Hour – the time of day we look forward to at the end of the week. It is a time to unwind and connect with friends, family, or colleagues after a long week. Whist we wait to reopen our doors and for travel to resume again, we transport you to experience Belize through taste. Try this Citrus Margarita from our Flavours of Belize Cookbook, put on a Belizean-inspired playlist, and cheer to future adventures in Belize to come! We look forward to seeing you soon.

1 cup tequila
