15 Magnificent Margaritas For Your Cinco de Mayo Bash

May 4 2015 - 12:55pm

Whether you prefer your margaritas blended or on the rocks, classic or creative (like a green tea, grapefruit, and basil option), we've got a recipe to satisfy your craving. Stock up on tequila and limes, then browse the collection, choose your favorite, and pair it with tortilla chips [1], guacamole [2], and salsa [3].

Jalapeño Margarita

Spice things up with a jalapeño margarita [4] with a secret ingredient: celery leaves. Less vegetal tasting and more herbal — similar to parsley — the celery leaves also contribute to its glowingly green color.

Strawberry Margarita

This ruby-red strawberry sipper [5] will treat you right.

Satsuma Margarita

Citrus makes an appearance in four forms in this zesty recipe [6]: satsuma juice and zest, lime juice, and orange liqueur.

Frozen Margarita

Like an alcoholic slushy minus the sugar crash, these sweet-tart frozen margaritas [7] delight, especially when rimmed with salt.

Spiced Apple Margarita

The margarita takes an autumnal turn [8] when made with apple juice, cinnamon, and star anise.

Green Juice Margarita

Day drinking? You can do no better than a gingery green-juice margarita [9].

Blueberry-Mint Margarita

Blueberries and mint add ample fresh flavor [10] to the classic combination of tequila, lime, and orange liqueur.

Pop Rocks Margarita

Surprise and delight your taste buds with a festive Pop Rocks margarita [11].

Classic Margarita

For a pared-down take on the classic margarita recipe, try this tangy sipper [12] that swaps agave nectar for orange liqueur to let the tequila and lime shine.

Berry Margarita Floats

Part drink, part dessert, these margarita floats [13] are just the thing to cool off with on a sweltering day.

Pumpkin Spice Margarita

For something unexpectedly cozy, try a pumpkin spice margarita [14].

Spicy Avocado Margarita

Avocado sounds like a strange addition to a cocktail [15], until you consider that margaritas are often paired with guacamole and that the fruit itself is mild in flavor.

Spicy Rhubarb Margarita

No, it's not strawberries that give this margarita its pink hue. Instead, it's homemade rhubarb syrup [16].

Honeydew Margarita

This honeydew margarita [17] is almost like a cocktail-and-agua-fresca hybrid. In other words: very refreshing.

Cranberry Margarita

No fresh cranberries are needed to make this variation [18]; it uses cranberry juice instead, which gives the tequila drink a bittersweet tang and blushing hue.
