There are countless holidays throughout the year, but one of the most festive holidays, in my opinion, would be Cinco de Mayo. This particular holiday is all about having fun and celebrating and should always include a few key items like tequila! No matter if you're planning to host a large celebration or a small, simple get-together, tequila will most likely be on the agenda, along with other important items like music, guacamole, friends and family and of course some tasty margaritas!
This year Sauza Tequila has made it super easy to plan your celebration by offering an authentic pitcher style margarita recipe to share with your guests. Sauza Tequila is the world's #2 premium tequila and is the perfect complement to any gathering, allowing every moment to become a celebration. By serving the cocktails pitcher-style this allows the host to spend less time in the kitchen and more time at the party ~ minimizing entertaining stress!
Each bottle of Sauza Tequila, the margarita's favorite tequila, is carefully crafted with the finest, fresh blue agave from the storied La Perseverancia distillery in Jalisco, Mexico using a process deeply rooted in tradition since 1873. Casa Sauza leads the category in caring for the precious agave plants to ensure a constant supply of the best agaves in the region. So, get ready for your celebration and mix up a few pitcher-style margaritas! Enjoy!
