- 1 1/2 Ounce lemon-lime soda
- 1 Tablespoon Sanding Sugar

Canned margaritas bring the fiesta to any occasion
Skip the blender or the cocktail shaker because these canned margaritas are perfect for any and every occasion. Whether you want to capture that fun in the sun or just need a break from another beer, a margarita can be that delightful refreshment sip after sip. Ready to crack open a can?
Similar to the number of hard seltzers on the shelf, there are many canned margaritas available. Also, a few tequila seltzers taste a skinny margarita, so it makes the options even greater. When picking an option, it comes down to personal preference.
Some margaritas are a touch sweet, others are a little more tart. While these canned options might not come with a salted rim, you can always pour the beverage into cocktail glass, too.
How to throw a Fiesta with Sauza Tequila
Throwing a fiesta couldn’t be easier with these simple pitcher style Sauza margaritas, a make your own margarita bar and a fun tablescape. Just grab a few friends and you’ve got a party! I’ll show you exactly how to throw a Fiesta with Sauza Tequila.
To really round out this party, serve these Slow Cooker Pork Carnitas!
As I mentioned in a blog post last week, it’s party season. From the start of baseball to the Kentucky Derby, to our favorite celebration, Cinco de Mayo, there is much to celebrate this Spring.
When it comes to parties, we find any excuse to throw a party. This year, I’ve gotten together with Sauza® Tequila to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with a few of my closest friends. So, it’s margaritas, salsas, guacamoles and tequila! Olé!
I’m not sure where I got the party gene, probably my mother. She threw me a quite an amazing “New Kids on the Block” party compete with pin the lips on Jordan when I was 7 years old. She was all about the details and the apple didn’t fall too far from the tree.
When it comes to party planning, I always start with the perfect invitation to set the tone. I own an invitation business after all. And it just so happens, these Mexican Fiesta invitations are my most popular invitation by far. And for good reason, it’s for a Fiesta people! From bridal showers to parties and everything in between., you can’t go wrong with a Fiesta themed party. are my most popular invitation by far. And for good reason, it’s for a Fiesta people! From bridal showers to parties and everything in between., you can’t go wrong with a Fiesta themed party.
Next, comes the food. I like to keep it simple. This Cinco de Mayo party, we had a nacho bar complete with everything you could ever imagine you’d want on a nacho. There was queso, salsa, guacamole, check out our hatch chile guacamole , it’s a favorite among friends, cheese and veggies.
Onto my favorite part. Did you know Cinco de Mayo is the biggest holiday of the year for tequila? When it comes to tequila, we don’t mess around. Our go to tequila of choice is and always has been Sauza® Tequila . Sauza® Tequila, is made with 100 percent blue weber agave at the renowned Sauza Distillery in Jalisco, Mexico. It’s the perfect tequila for pitcher style margaritas, which are a must when hosting a group of friends.
For our pitcher style margaritas, we went with Sauza Classic Margarita. But here comes the fun part. We also set out a variety fruit, so you can craft your own margarita. There’s strawberries, cantaloupe, pineapple and jalapenos so you can go crazy with ingredients. I love to pair herbs with fruit, so I also set out cilantro, basil and mint.
Just set out a muddler with instructions and a few of your favorite combinations, as I’ve done here and have your guests get creative! The favorite ingredient was the jalapeno. A little bit of heat is delicious in these margs!
One of the best things about serving pitcher-style margaritas is that it makes things super easy and the host doesn’t have to stand around playing bartender all night. We made multiple pitchers and store them in the fridge to replenish as needed because when the weather is hot, nothing cools you like a delicious, margarita on the rocks, compete with lime salt!
Let’s not forget about our friends who do not drink alcohol. For them, I like to have these fun Mexican soft drinks that I styled with “Soda Pop” labels.
When hosting a Cinco de Mayo party, don’t forget about the decoration details. I love to use cans of chiles in adobo, jalapenos and refried beans as centerpieces for utensils, floral arrangements and succulents. I happened to find the pom poms at the Dollar store which were a fun addition to the plain wall.
I also use my every day fiesta ware to bring color to the table as well as a large bowl for holding lots of tortilla chips, a serving platter for nacho toppings and Mexican servings bowls for the margarita bar.
It’s super easy, simple and cheap to throw a fun Cinco de Mayo party for your closest friends. Plus, the Sauza Classic Margaritas are fabulous so your friends will always know where to come for a good time!

Fiesta Forever With Our Best Margarita Recipes
But, just in case, here are a few: dreaming of traveling to Mexico, girls night in, girls night out, any sports viewing event ever, to help you eat up all the chips and salsa, and pretty much anytime ever.
So we're sharing all sorts of flavors ( sweet, spicy, or smoky) and colors of margaritas so you can choose your own adventure and keep the fiesta well fueled. ¡Salud!
Classic Cadillac Margarita
Saying the word "classic" when talking margaritas totally opens a can of worms. So, instead let's say that this is our version of a Classic Cadillac Margarita with a dash of orange liqueur, not too sweet, and plenty of crushed ice. Mix it, try it, and tweak it to make it your own.
Charred Citrus Margarita
If you're looking for a twist on the classic Cadillac Margarita, this is it. Citrus gets charred over an open flame for a twist on the classic cocktail recipe. The idea for this came about because, well, one of the most classic flavors in Mexico is char - see: all the toasted ingredients in mole , charred tlayudas, or flame-licked carne asada - and it's high time that flavor came into the margarita world.
Spicy Guava Cadillac Margarita
Okay, yes, we think all tropical fruits belong in a margarita at one time or another. But if you want a margarita that's not too fruity flavored but still tropical enough to deserve a mini umbrella, it's this Spicy Guava Cadillac Margarita.
Spicy Kiwi Mint Margarita
If you want something decidedly not classic, then give this refreshing and slightly Spicy Kiwi Mint Margarita a go.
Watermelon Pomegranate Margarita
And if we're going to talk pomegranate then this split personality Watermelon Pomegranate Margarita should be mentioned: it's at once easy and serious, sweet and tart, and a deep red we'd love in a nailpolish color!
Aperol Red Grapefruit Margarita
This is a curve ball of a margarita and definitely not for everyone. If you like things tart and bittersweet (in your drinks not in your life) and, like us, love both Mexico and Italy equally, then this Aperol Red Grapefruit Margarita right up your alley.
Charred Jalapeno Carrot Margarita
The grad student of the bunch, this margarita takes a lot more effort than the others, but, just like a great 300-level college lecture, this Charred Jalapeno Carrot Margarita will expand your horizons.
Papaya Mango Frozen Margarita
You didn't think we'd leave you without a frozen margarita, did you? Honestly, we don't often make frozen margaritas, but when we do, this Papaya Mango Frozen Maragita is the one we blend up!
Charred Mango Ancho Mezcal Margarita
Clearly we think mangoes belong in margaritas, but this cocktail is a level up from a standard mango margarita. In this Charred Mango Ancho Mezcal Margarita, the the mango gets grilled then shaken with ancho chile-spiked tequila, some smoky mezcal, and a lot of lime for a sweet, smoky, tart take on a mango margarita.
Pomegranate Guava Margarita
Margaritas are an all-weather, all-terrain drink when you mix up the flavors a bit: this sultry tart, tangy Pomegranate Guava Margarita is proof.
Spicy Kumquat Thyme Margarita
Speaking of all-season margarita drinking, this is the cocktail we turn to when kumquats are in season. A bit tart with a bold citrus flavor and a touch of thyme, this Spicy Kumquat Thyme Margarita is for when you want something subtle.
Pineapple Mint Julep Margarita
Every year we struggle with which to celebrate more: Cinco de Mayo or Derby Day so we decided to solve that problem my having this Pineapple Mint Julep Margarita that'll take us through the whole week!
Guava Mezcal Mule
You're right, this isn't a margarita — it doesn't even use tequila but rather uses mezcal! But, if you're just so over margs, want something a bit more smoky and edgy, and you like a Moscow Mule, this Guava Mezcal Mule be your drink of choice! If you want some other Mexican-inspired but non-Margarita cocktails, here are some of our favorites!

Classic Margarita (On the Rocks)
The classic margarita consists of tequila, lime juice and orange liqueur. Typically the ingredient ratio is 2 to 1 to 1. For orange liqueur, we prefer the Austin, Texas - produced Paula's Texas Orange, a wonderful, less expensive version of Cointreau. Of course, it's only money!
- Mix together the tequila, orange liqueur/triple sec and lime juice in a cocktail shaker. If you want to sweeten the mixture, add ½ ounce to 1 ounce of agave nectar. (Outside Texas, people use simple syrup)
- Shake vigorously and strain into a collins glass filled with ice cubes.
- To serve, rub the rim of each glass with a cut lime wedge and dip the rim into salt to coat it thoroughly.
- Garnish with lime wedges.
- Makes 1 margarita.
Note: For the rim, coat the rim of the glass in lime juice and dip it in kosher salt or margarita rimming salts. Some folks add some chili powder to the rimming mixture.
For tequila, use your favorite brand of tequila blanco or tequila reposado. If you want to be really creative, infuse your tequila beforehand with fruit flavors. You can sweeten the drink with a few drops of agave nectar or some simple syrup.
Buy containers of Margarita salt that are flat and handy for salting the glasses, but regular salt in a saucer works just fine. Guidance for this recipe was provided by Lucinda Hudson's outstanding book on the subject of tequila, Viva Tequila!: Cocktails, Cooking, and Other Agave Adventures
