I thought a fun way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo was a do-it-yourself margarita bar, because let’s be honest – I can’t always be the hostess with the mostest – so make your own damn drink!
I put out 3 different kinds of juice: classic lime, orange and grapefruit, and raspberries, blackberries, and lime slices as garnish.
Can’t forget the tequila and Cointreau!
I put out instructions for a classic margarita – but let my guests decide what fruit juice and garnish they’d like.
Two combinations I liked were 1 ounce of lime juice and 2 ounces of grapefruit, mixed with both blackberries and limes.
My other favorite was simply using orange juice with raspberries.
I think mango and pineapple could be a fun addition to this margarita bar as well. What are some of your favorite margarita recipes?
