February 22nd is National Margarita Day! In honor of the holiday break out your favorite glass and fill it up with one of the five delicious margarita recipes below using Sauza Blue Tequila. Originating in the 1940’s, no one is quite sure who invented this refreshing combination of tequila, lime juice and orange flavored liqueur, but it’s certainly no mystery that this classic concoction is one of the most popular cocktails of all time!
Sauza Blue Tequila is crafted at the renowned Sauza Distillery in Jalisco, Mexico. The agave plants are put into tequila production within 48 hours of being hand-picked, then milled and steeped prior to cooking in a process called Fresh Pressed Agave, resulting in the freshest, natural, crisp agave flavor. Sauza Blue Tequila is the perfect tequila for a premium, fresh-tasting margarita.
Don't just take my word for it, try it for yourself!
