Sauza Margaritas Cinco de Mayo and my birthday are only a few days apart, so I’m normally celebrating my birthday with a margarita in hand. Because, why not? My husband likes to call them Mark-aritas.  If he doesn’t have a beer in hand, it’s a margarita. This year I made a pitcher to share with guests and used Sauza® Signature Blue Silver Tequila and my secret trick from Mexico to make some of the best margaritas I’ve ever had.

After 30 we stop celebrating birthdays right? I feel like you could just let me take a nap and it would be a good day. That means I’m getting old right? A good adult night out is always amazing also. Getting together with girlfriends to hang out and chat about how our husbands and children drove us crazy this past week. I can wipe up some of my spicy guacamole to dip into before breaking out the margaritas.Sauza Margaritas

I’m always super picky about the tequila that I put into my drinks. It’s one of the only liquors that I actually like to drink, and if you know me, you know I don’t drink often unless it’s a special occasion. Sauza® Signature Blue Silver Tequila is made with 100% blue weber agave. Making the margaritas pitcher style, I’m able to make them ahead of time and not play bartender all evening when someone wants one. It’s a hostess secret to making your life a little easier. Plus, you get to enjoy the company and conversation instead of mixing drinks alone in the kitchen. One of my favorite tricks that I picked up during my time in Mexico was that everyone used a splash of lemon-lime soda to give the margarita a little fuzzy kick. I thought they were crazy but now I can’t live without it. It’s so good.Sauza Margaritas

Here is what I used to make our margaritas:

Serves 8

1 ½ cups Sauza® Signature Blue Silver Tequila

1 bottle (25.4 oz) Stirrings® Simple Margarita Cocktail Mix

Salt for rimming

Limes for garnish

Lemon-Lime Soda

Add ingredients to pitcher and stir.

Salt your glasses by dipping the rims of the glasses in the margarita mix. It is sticky and helps the sale stay longer.

Place ice cubes into the glass.

Add a splash of lemon-lime soda to the glass and then pour the margarita over the ice.
