For our Afternoon shift nurses: Fresh Margarita
After your shift, you still have the rest of the day left to relax. We choose tequila as your choice of liquor, because it is the only alcohol that is a stimulant, to help you finish out the rest of the day strong. If you are looking for a gluten free and organic liquor check our Tito’s tequila. The fresh squeezed juice in this recipe will also keep you refreshed.
