Today marks one of my very favorite days of the year, National Margarita Day. In honor of this joyous celebration, we present you with these delicious, easy to make recipes from two delicious tequila brands.
Cruz has become well known for it’s smooth tequila that’s made from the finest blue agave in the Los Angeles region. Their gold and silver tequila make an excellent addition to any cocktail including this one:
CRUZ Citrus Margarita
-2 parts Cruz Silver Tequila
-¾ parts agave nectar
-1 lime squeezed
-½ lemon squeezed
-½ orange squeezed
-1-2 parts filtered water
-A couple sprigs of mint
Shake all ingredients with ice and strain over fresh ice. Garnish with a mint sprig.
Tres Agaves is another quality brand that’s famous for it’s organic cocktail mixes and quality tequila.
The Real Fresh Margarita
They don’t call this the “real” margarita for nothing! All the ingredients used to make this delicious cocktail are all natural and as organic as it gets.
-2 parts Tres Agaves Blanco Tequila
-1 part Tres Agaves Cocktail-Ready Agave Nectar
-1 part fresh-squeezed lime juice
-Lime wheel or wedge, for garnish (optional)
Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Mix ingredients, shake, pour over ice. Salt the rim or add a fresh lime wedge for garnish.
Each of these margarita recipes can be enjoyed over ice or blended, and are perfect for a girls night in!
