Cinco de Mayo is officially here and there’s no better way to celebrate the day than with a little fiesta! This year, Timmy and I are going to be hosting some friends and having a little get together! Whenever we’re having company over, my favorite part of hosting is decorating, creating the ambience and making a special cocktail! Of course, on Cinco de Mayo, no party is complete without a yummy margarita. To make the classic cocktail, I partnered with Cointreau (the crystal clear orange liqueur) and mixed up something soooooo good — The Original Margarita.

Did you know The Original Margarita dates back to 1948 Acapulco when socialite Margarita Sames mixed her two favorite spirits together — Cointreau and tequila?! Cointreau gives it just the right flavor since it’s the perfect blend of both bitter and sweet orange peels.

The 1849 French brand is also a key ingredient in many classic cocktails, like the Cosmopolitan and Sidecar. To make the beverage for this weekend, I followed the Cointreau Original Margarita recipe:

  • 1 oz. Cointreau
  • 2 oz. Blanco Tequila
  • 1 oz. fresh lime juice

Ta-da! You’ve got a delicious margarita for you and your guests to enjoy.
