Classic Cocktail : The Margarita

As a part of our classic cocktail recipe series, we are making a classic margarita today. Just in time for Cinco de Mayo, this delish and fresh cocktail comes at the perfect time to welcome warm weather and good times.

Classic Cocktail: The Margarita

With the weather warming up and Cinco de Mayo right around the corner, sharing my recipe for a classic Margarita just felt perfect for this week. I love a nice, cold, on the rocks Margarita with a thick rim of salt of course. It is just so refreshing, but not to sweet like some cocktails tend to be. I like mine to be full of lime flavor. And served up in vintage glassware with our cocktail napkin makes it all the sweeter. What’s more, this classic cocktail recipe can be found on one of our best-selling tea towels.
