Texan-turned-New York City gal Lela Rose is one of our favorite fashion designers--plus the life of any party she's attending. This margarita is Lela’s go-to tequila drink, and she shared it with us just in time for Cinco de Mayo! Refreshingly sweet, and a lil bit spicy (just like Lela), this drink is a tasty twist on the classic.
