#1: The 1800 Tequila Margarita
The traditional margarita brings together tequila, fresh lime juice, and orange liqueur for a balanced, punchy drink that’s as refreshing as they come. If you make these for a party, we promise, no one will complain.
2 oz. 1800® Silver Tequila 1 oz. Lime Juice ½ oz. Agave Syrup ½ oz. Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice
Directions: Combine all ingredients in a shaker, shake and strain into salted Rocks glass. Garnish with Lime Wedge.
#2: The Coconut Smash
The margarita is a classic for a reason — a well-made margarita is a truly good drink — but sometimes, you want to get a little fancier. Here, we’re using 1800 Coconut Tequila with lime juice, papaya and honey for a drink that’s sweet, tart, and super-complex considering it only has three ingredients.
