You are about to have your girlfriends, family or a few couples over. You get the beer on ice, the apps at the ready and of course make Classic Margarita’s By The Pitcher!
To me, icy-cold Margaritas are one of the most fun cocktails to enjoy at restaurants and at home. I like them both on the rocks as well as frozen. Nothing beats a classic, deliciously refreshing Margarita.
It all starts with the tequila. Don’t skimp…After all the tequila takes center stage in the drink right? I partnered with Sauza® Tequila to share their delicious Classic Margarita recipe with you which is a perfect cocktail to make for everything from celebrating Cinco de Mayo, to backyard BBQ’s to simply hanging outside on a weekend night with your friends or your love.
Making Classic Margarita’s By The Pitcher is easy on the host and the guests. The Margaritas are ready to go all you or your guest need to do is pour! Not all cocktails are created equal…Some are fussy and need to be made by the glass. So when you are planning your next gathering, big or small, get your pitchers at the ready and make sure you have plenty of Sauza® Tequila on-hand as well as their recipe for “Classic Margarita’s By the Pitcher for a Crowd!
Sauza® Tequila is one of the top tequila brands in the world, for this recipe I used Sauza® Signature Blue Silver Tequila which is crafted at the renowned Sauza Distillery in Jalisco, Mexico. Made with 100 percent blue weber agave, the taste is fresh, clean with notes of grapefruit and floral. It’s delicious!
More tequila is consumed on Cinco de Mayo than any other day of the year…This year, reach for Sauza® Tequila, the clear bottle with the vibrant blue label and up your tequila enjoyment game by making Margarita’s By The Pitcher!
