Rum Margarita Recipes

Need a Margarita recipe using rum for Cinco de Mayo? Si, si – we did too, so we experimented a little and came up with these two. With the rum, the taste  resembles a daiquiri, but with not a lot of added sugar, it’s not as sweet and you get the nice margarita tartness. Mmmm – Salud!
