Cinco de Mayo? Cinco Margarita Recipes!

So you’re thinking of throwing a Cinco de Mayo party this weekend? Really want to impress your guests with something way better than the usual neon green too-limey/too-sweet store-bought margarita mix? Here’s a margarita recipe (or five!) that will leave your friends begging for your recipe.  Each of our party-tested margarita recipes tastes SO much better than what you’ll get from that jug of José Cuervo brand mixer.   (And if you’ve already purchased said jug of mixer, see the first recipe for a tip on how you can still get great results using a store-bought mix).

Put on your party sombrero and count them off with me —

Uno!  Top Shelf Margarita.  Want the ease of using an off-the-shelf mixer?  Cut back just a bit on the amount of bottled mix and leave room for a splash of Grand Marnier alongside the tequila.  Then, squeeze in an orange and a lime, and you’ll have a golden-smooth, top quality margarita that tastes handmade.

Dos!  Blended Gold Margarita.  If you’re having a big crowd and you need to serve your margaritas by the pitcher, this recipe is for you! Track down a few cans of frozen margarita mix (Bacardi makes a great one), ignore the recipe on the can (use ours instead), and crank up your blender!

Tres!  Shades of Taos.  This is our premium, hand-crafted, all natural margarita.  Nothing but fresh squeezed fruit, a dash of agave nectar, Cointreau, and your favorite tequila.  The margarita that legendary stories are made from.

Cuatro!  Tangerine Margarita.  Another super-tasty hand-crafted margarita with an ultra-smooth tangerine-y twist to it.  This is our newest margarita recipe and it’s quickly become Debbie’s favorite. And several friends have reported back rave reviews after “quality testing” our recipe at their own parties.

CINCO!  Pomegranate Margarita.  If you really want to break from the norm, this recipe is way different.  Festive deep pink color, delicious tangy pomegranate flavor, and a smooth finish of blanco tequila that leaves no doubt you’re drinking a margarita in spite of its outward appearance.
