Having an easy to use (and easy to clean) citrus juicer makes juicing a bag of limes quick and effortless! Kick your feet up this weekend, relax, and take your sweet time sipping a slushy blended margarita with a side of corn tortilla chip and salsa. Or enjoy a thirst-quenching margarita on the rocks as you sit down to your Cinco de Mayo feast.
