Margarita Madness!

It’s almost Cinco De Mayo everyone... you know what that means? Margs on margs on margs!! I’m very excited to share with you a margarita series I’ve been working on with Exotico Tequila in preparation for the special day! Exotico tequila is handcrafted by the Gonzalez Distillery- a family distillery spanning the generations and is one of Mexico's most respected makers of Tequila. They make their tequila with 100% Weber Blue Agave which grows in a red clay soul making the heart of the Agave plant sweeter and giving Exotico tequila a well rounded floral flavor. Both their reposado and blanco tequila are clean and full of flavor and I'm obsessed with both of them!! Learn more about their distilling process here!  

The four margaritas I worked on with them in preparation of Cinco De Mayo are fruity, flavorful and sure to be a hit with all your friends and family this Sunday!
