Grab your tequila and salt, because today marks National Margarita Day!
We teamed with 1800 Tequila to help you to celebrate National Margarita Day. From traditional margarita mixes to fancy fruit concoctions, we have the recipes you need to celebrate this National Holiday in style.
The 1800 Tequila Margarita
The traditional margarita brings together tequila, fresh lime juice, and orange liqueur for a balanced, punchy drink that’s as refreshing as they come. If you make these for a party, we promise, no one will complain.
2 oz. 1800® Silver Tequila
1 oz. Lime Juice
½ oz. Agave Syrup
½ oz. Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice
Directions: Mix all ingredients in a shaker, shake and strain into salted Rocks glass. Garnish with Lime Wedge.
The Coconut Smash
The margarita is a classic for a reason — a well-made margarita is a great drink — but sometimes, you want to a little sophisticated. Here, we’re using 1800 Coconut Tequila with lime juice, papaya and honey for a drink that’s sweet, tart, and super-complex considering it only has three ingredients.
2 ounces 1800® Tequila Coconut
3 slices papaya
¼ ounce honey
Pinch of basil
Directions: Add all ingredients to shaker. Shake and strain into highball glass. Garnish with basil sprig.
The Red House
Want to look like a skillful bartender? Make this cocktail for guests, and they’ll be eating out of your palm. With less than five ingredients this drink can be created in a snap and will certainly catch the eyes of all your tequila-loving friends.
2 ounces 1800® Añejo Tequila
¼ ounce lemon
½ nectarine puree
½ ounce agave
¾ ounce Italian bitter liqueur
Directions: Add all ingredients to mixing glass. Stir for 10 seconds. Double strain into martini glass and garnish with grapefruit peel.
