Happy Cinco de Mayo + Casa Vega's Skinny Margarita Recipe

Happy Cinco de Mayo! Or, more appropriately, Tequila de Mayo! Today is basically a day dedicated to meals at divey Mexican joints that serve, at a minimum, chips, salsa and killer margaritas. Having great food and a festive atmosphere is a bonus, but luckily I've got just the place that meets all the fiesta requirements: Casa Vega. You might recognize Casa Vega from the restaurant's stint on Bravo's Flipping Out, when the Valley establishment underwent a small renovation of its front patio. Other than that small change, the majority of Casa Vega's decor and passed-down family recipes have remained untouched since its doors opened in 1956. If you're one of the loyal patrons, you'll be intimately familiar with the dark atmosphere, leather booths' lining the walls and knock-you-on-your-butt margaritas.
