Margaritas for Cinco de Mayo

I like my margaritas icy–like a lime slushie with a kick. This recipe uses a little more than a serving of tequila in each margarita, so please be aware and use caution! 

Servings: 2


  • 1/2 cup tequila blanco 
  • 1/4 cup Grand Marnier
  • 1 cup Tres Agaves Organic Margarita Mix
  • 16-20 ice cubes (depending on size of cubes)


Optional: If you wish to salt the rim of your glass, do this first. Pour a shallow layer of salt onto a small plate. If you have a lime, slice the lime into a wedge and moisten the rim with it. If you do not have a lime available, fill a plate or a small bowl with water, and dip the rim of your glass in the water. Once the rim of the glass is moistened, dip the rim in the salt.

  1. Place all ingredients in a high-powered blender and blend until there are no large chunks of ice left. 
  2. Pour into a margarita glass and enjoy.

Cocktail Notes:

With Cinco de Mayo around the corner, it seemed like a good time to post a margarita recipe. For the tequila, we try different brands. I do prefer a blanco tequila though. Smoky flavors do not appeal to me in beverages, so I stick to blanco or silver varieties. I’m sure tequila aficionados would disagree with me, but I don’t think you need a fancy tequila in a margarita. Save your fancy tequilas for drinking on the rocks, so you can enjoy nuance of the flavors. This weekend, we used Hornitos Plata, and we thought the margaritas were great.  

FYI, this is not sponsored in any way, we just like the Tres Agaves Organic Margarita Mix.
