National Margarita Day
Happy National Margarita Day! There are many variations of a margarita - it can be served frozen or on the rocks, flavored with different fruit flavors, served "skinny", and even served with an upside down beer bottle in the glass!
We have three different margarita recipes for you to try! Two of the recipes are from our customers and one is from our CFO, Jon Triplett. Try them all and let us know in the comments which one you liked the best!

The Triplett Margarita on the Rocks
Recipe by Jon Triplett
Makes two margaritas
- 3- ¾ oz. shots of fresh squeezed Key Lime Juice
- 3- 1¼ oz. shots of your favorite Top Shelf Tequila
- 3- 1¼ oz. shots of Cointreau Triple Sec Orange Liquor
- 2- ¾ oz. shots of pure agave nectar (more or less depending on how sweet you like the drink)
In a shaker glass combine all of the ingredients shown above and shake until the pure agave nectar has dissolved in the drink. It takes a minute. Rim two glasses with coarse salt, add ice, and the drink from the shaker. As the ice melts, the drink mellows. Be careful, these sneak up on you in the hot sun... it's easy to have too many!
