Salt, Lime, Tequila!

Celebrate National Margarita Day with this recipe

Cincoro Blanco Margarita

This Saturday, Feb. 22 is National Margarita Day. But is there really a time when we can’t celebrate this classic tequila cocktail?

In honor of the holiday, Cincoro Tequila is sharing its unique twist on the to-go cocktail, featuring its namesake tequila perfectly balanced with citrus and agave nectar.

Born out of friendly rivalry between competitors, Cincoro Tequila is the brainchild of some powerhouse players in the sports world. Created by Michael Jordan of the Charlotte Hornets, Jeanie Buss of the LA Lakers, Wes Edens of the Milwaukee Bucks and Wyc Grousbeck and Emilia Fazzalari of the Boston Celtics, Cincoro was formed with one goal in mind: to create the new gold standard in tequila.

Cincoro currently offers four award-winning expressions: Blanco, Reposado, Añejo and Extra Añejo. This recipe calls for the Blanco, an un-aged and made with 100 percent Weber blue agave from the highlands and lowlands of Jalisco, Mexico.

2 oz Cincoro Blanco Tequila
1 oz fresh lime juice
¾ oz Cointreau
¼ oz agave nectar
