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! This classic margarita recipe is like no other and guaranteed to make the evening a fun one!
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.
How To Make a Pitcher of Classic Margaritas – Recipe and Technique
It all starts with the tequila. Don’t skimp…After all the tequila takes center stage in the drink right? This is a Classic Margarita cocktail recipe, which is the 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 for an easy party cocktail recipe – 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 Pitcher Margarita’s for a Crowd”!
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!
Did you know that more tequila is consumed on Cinco de Mayo than any other day of the year?
