Margarita Recipe card download for Cinco de Mayo from Evermore Paper Co.

Happy Cinco de Mayo! Anyone who knows me well, knows that I never met a margarita I didn't like. It's often my go-to drink and one that I like to experiment with at home. Today I am sharing my three favorites: classic, grapefruit and coconut. I also created a free recipe card download for each so that you can give them a try yourself. The best part is that each uses 5 ingredients or less and are super easy to make. All you need to get this fiesta started is a glass juicer, shaker, some ice and a strainer. You can find the full recipes below along with the free recipe card download and some tips for making the best margarita ever. Enjoy!

TIPS & TRICKS

  • After juicing the fruit, I often strain it once through a mesh sieve or tea strainer to remove any pulp. 
  • Use a lime to wet the rim of your glass before adding salt to it and serve in an old-fashioned glass, like this.
  • For a spicier option, replace the agave nectar or simple syrup with a jalapeno-infused simple syrup or add cayenne pepper to your salted rim
  • Use larger ice cubes to prevent your drink from becoming watered down. I recommend these.
