May 04, 2017

Feliz Cinco de Mayo! To kick off the weekend and celebrate Mexican-American culture, we’re shaking things up. Literally. We’re shaking up some tequila with a few of our favorite cold-pressed juices. YUM.

If you’re looking for some margarita recipe inspiration, look no further. We’ve got a couple of super easy recipes for a Apricot Margarita, a Strawberry Margarita, and a Tart Cherry Margarita for you below. And super simple is key, right? That way you spend less time mixing and more time sipping!

Apricot Margarita

Strawberry Margarita

Tart Cherry Margarita

Directions:

  1. In a blender, mix juice, tequila, orange liqueur, and fresh lime juice. Or, shake in a large container with a top (such as a 32 oz. mason jar).
  2. Fill a pitcher with ice and pour in the blended margarita.Stir well to ensure that the mixture is combined. 
    *Alternatively, you could make single cocktails in a shaker using 2 oz. juice, 2 oz. tequila, 1 oz. orange liquor, and juice of ½ a lime. But, seriously, who drinks only 1 margarita?!
  3. Get your sippin’ glasses ready by rubbing each rim with a lime wedge. Fill a small plate with salt and dip the lime-y rim of the glass in the salt.
  4. Divide margarita into the salted glasses and garnish each glass with the respective fruit and lime wedge. Then, sip away!
