The weather in London has been brilliant and everybody is out and about enjoying the sunshine. Here in my house we have been having lots of friends for BBQ, summer is my favourite time of the year, in fact, somebody said to me that I bloom in summer, because I always look fresh and it seems that I enjoy the heat, not like el inglés that struggles with temperature more then 15 C.

In the summer I always fancy doing some refreshing drinks, just because I like the weather and this is the case of this delicious, mango and lime margarita! it is a very easy cocktail to make, so here is the recipe and I hope you are enjoying the weather like me and not melting like el inglés! eh! eh!
