Margarita Madness

margaritaI’ll admit: it’s Friday, it’s the end of the summer, and this girl would love a margarita. The frosty citrus-kissed lovely libation was made for sunny afternoons. With only weeks left to enjoy the summer, help your clients embrace what’s left and surprise them with this south-of-the-border inspired treat.

The Margarita Key Lime Pedicure ($115, 75 minutes) at Little Palm Key Resort’s SpaTerre is a popular pick. While guests enjoy a salt and lime exfoliation and a nourishing massage with Key Lime Lotion, they are able to kick back with a margarita of their own.

Year-round, guests of The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Dallas are able to enjoy Dean’s Margarita Salt Glow ($170, 80 minutes) body treatment. The skin is gently softened with a mix of buffing salts, simulating extracts, and lemon verbena, and then pampered with a 50-minute massage.

Have you come across any cocktail-inspired treatments? Do you have any stories about end-of-summer spa-ing you’d like to share? Feel free to comment or email us at
