Salsa and Margarita Cozumel is a fully interactive excursion. You learn how to make 4 salsas, guacamole and margaritas during the class. We also got a lesson in salsa dancing. It was so cool learning how to make salsa from scratch with fresh ingredients. I can’t wait to remake the recipes when we are home.
You know a class is going to be great when your first lesson is a lime margarita. Fresh squeezed lime, a bit of tequila and oh so much fun!
After making and enjoying our first lime margarita we learned how to make a great frozen strawberry margarita.
This class is filled with tips and tricks to make sure you can make the best margarita and salsa.
We made a red salsa, green salsa, guacamole, pico d gallo, tropical salsa and dessert salsa during the class. Each of these was so dang good!
