It’s been a long week and it’s only Tuesday. That’s okay because it’s National Margarita Day!
To celebrate the holiday that we all need try these amazing sips at Happy Hour and all night long. Just remember it is a work day. One, two, three – bottoms up before midnight.
The Chainsmokers’ Drew Taggart and Alex Pall certainly have music to make National Margarita Day fun, but you will really be dancing to the beat of their very own JAJA Tequila. The Blanco is simply enjoyable. The experience highlights subtle tones and never overwhelms the senses. Best of all each bottle of JAJA is made from 90% recycled glass and zero plastic, and pulp from the agave is composted and returned to the fields as fertilizer.
1.5 oz of JAJA Blanco
2 oz. Limeade
Build in a salted rim highball glass over ice and garnish with watermelon wedge.
If you are in the mood for something sizzling today try Volcán de mi Tierra Blanco’s Devil’s Margarita.
1 ⅓ oz Volcán de mi Tierra Blanco
1 oz fresh lime juice
⅔ oz simple syrup
⅔ oz fruity red wine
Pour tequila, lime juice, and simple syrup into a shaker filled with ice and shake vigorously. Strain into glass and slowly pour the red wine into the drink using a bar spoon.
Cointreau takes your margaritas to the next level with a twist.
For a sweet trip this Tuesday try the Berry Margarita.
1 oz of Cointreau
1.5 oz Blanco Tequila
.75 oz Fresh Lime Juice
4 Fresh Blackberries
Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker. Add ice and shake until well-chilled. Strain into a chilled Old Fashioned glass. Garnish with a blackberry
And for those looking for an alternative to alcohol a perfect celebration is found with Betty Buzz and their Virgin Margarita.
1/2 Bottle of Betty Buzz Sparkling Lemon Lime
1 oz Lime Juice or Fresh Squeezed Lime
1 oz Orange Juice
Lime Wheel or Dehydrated Lime (to ganish)
Dip the edge of lowball glass into lime juice and then into salt. Add fresh lime and orange to shaker with ice. Shake well. Pour entire shaker contents into glass and top with Betty Buzz Sparkling Lemon Lime. Garnish with lime wheel or dehydrated lime.
Happy Margarita Day!
