I love a good excuse to celebrate - especially when it involves guacamole! A few weeks ago Sarah, Maya, Jennie, Randi and I all got together to have a little fiesta for Cinco de Mayo. It was the perfect time to put our margarita making skills to the test... or should I say Sarah's margarita making skills :) If I had to pick a favorite cocktail, it would most likely be between a tasty Margarita or a Moscow Mule. Both are refreshing and oh so delicious.
With the help of Sarah's master mixologist skills, I've included a little margarita recipe if you're interested in making up your own this weekend. If you're celebrating the Kentucky Derby too, you can even add a little margarita table to do some double duty on the festivities! Who can turn down a margarita and a mint julep?
Now, on to the important part. How to make your own little margarita (or two, or three..)
What You Need:
- Tequila (we used Jose Cuervo Reserva Platino Silver)
- Fresh Limes/Lime Juice
- Orange Juice
- Agave Syrup
- Sugar or Salt (for the rim)
How to Assemble: For the purpose of our cocktails, we went ahead and did 4 parts tequila, 4 parts lime juice, 2 parts orange juice and two spoonfuls of agave syrup to make a total of four cocktails. Pour over ice and add your limes as a garnish to the pitcher. Dip the glass rims in lime juice, then in to your salt or sugar and pour your margarita mix on in!
To add a little spice, freeze jalapeños in your ice cube trays for a kick when it melts. I don't love anything super spicy, but this was the perfect amount of flavor to take it up a notch.
Thank you to Drizly (get $5 off!), K2, FTD Flowers and Crowning Event for helping us celebrate. Cheers!
