RECIPE: Meyer Lemon Margarita

RECIPE: Meyer Lemon Margarita

Did you know that every February 22, tequila hounds, margarita lovers and probably a majority of your “fun friends” come together for one reason and one reason only? Today is National Margarita Day people, today we gather to pay homage to one of life’s greatest gifts, a personal favorite and all around fantastic celebratory cocktail – the magnificent margarita.

Mixed in every quality margarita is a pour of smooth tequila, we recently ventured down to Mexico to experience how it’s made. If you haven’t read about our trip yet, be sure to check it out before you take a sip!  We created our recipe using Lunazul Tequila which is grown, distilled and bottled at Tierra de Agaves.

This recipe can be doubled, quadrupled, etc., that all depends if you’re trying to fiesta like there’s no mañana. For the best margaritas, we suggest using the highest quality, simple ingredients you can get your hands on. Try to stay away from the premade mixes, trust us you can taste the difference. We’ve included our housemade sweet + sour mix for those who want to take your margaritas to the next level. Mix, shake, pour and enjoy, Salud!
