Entertaining for Cinco de Mayo

3 Simple & Refreshing Margaritas with Sipp

 

Our favorite part of Cinco de Mayo? Margaritas. Hands down. There are few things more refreshing than a little tequila, ice, salt, and fresh squeezed lime juice on a warm, sunny day. In fact, Sipp Founder and President, Beth, really started her entertaining career by throwing an annual Cinco de Mayo party at her house, bringing together her friends, family, and neighbors under one roof to celebrate. Mixing up fresh drinks and pairing them with Mexican-inspired dishes, people were so impressed that they suggested she start her own catering business. And that’s where the story of Sipp begins. You can read the rest of Beth’s story and how Sipp came to be here.

Since we will surely be mixing our own concoctions to celebrate (and we hope you are too!), we thought we’d round up our favorite Sipp margarita recipes and share them with you. The best part is you don’t need a lot of ingredients to create really refreshing, delicious margaritas, just a little lime juice and Sipp is all that’s necessary. No mixologist required.

 

Zesty Orange Margarita

This flavor was inspired by a margarita recipe. We aren’t lying when we say Sipp’s flavors are cocktail and culinary inspired. The citrus from blood orange gives this margarita it’s main flavor, followed by a dash of lime and a hint of jalapeno to add some extra layers of refreshment. 

While our Zesty Orange flavor is fairly new and can be hard to find, the good news is it is available on Amazon! Order today (Wednesday, 5/3) and you’ll get it on Friday (5/5) if you have Amazon Prime.

Note: If the jalapeno scares you off, you should know that is really is just a hint for the flavor. We do not consider this flavor “spicy” by any means.

 Ingredients (makes 1 drink):

1.5 oz tequila

1 oz fresh squeezed lime juice

4 oz Sipp Zesty Orange

Lime wedge for garnish

Instructions: Add tequila and lime juice into a glass filled with ice. Top with Zesty Orange. Stir. Garnish with a lime wedge or jalapeno slice (optional).

 

Zesty Corona-rita

A little added flavor from a cold bottle of Corona to the Zesty Orange Margarita makes this recipe super flavorful and delicious. The Zesty Corona-rita will definitely be a hit among the men in your crew.

 

Ingredients (makes 1 drink):

1 oz tequila

½ oz fresh squeezed lime juice

2 oz Corona (regular or light)

Sipp Zesty Orange

Lime wedge for garnish

Instructions: Add tequila, Corona, and lime juice into a glass filled with ice. Top with Zesty Orange. Stir. Garnish with a lime wedge or jalapeno slice (optional).

 

Blackberry Mint Margarita 

Blackberry and mint aren’t usually the norm in a margarita, but if you love our Mojo Berry flavor (consists of organic blackberry, mint & lime extracts) then you’ll really enjoy this. The fruitiness from the blackberry gives this drink a bit of a tropical feel. The mint and lime add additional enhancement to the already refreshing flavor.

 You can find Mojo Berry at your local Target and also on Amazon.

 

 Ingredients (makes 1 drink)

1.5 oz tequila

1 oz fresh squeezed lime juice

4 oz Sipp Mojo Berry

Lime wedge for garnish

**Add a few frozen blackberries if you’re feeling fancy

Instructions: Add tequila and lime juice into a glass filled with ice. Top with Mojo Berry. Stir. Garnish with a lime wedge and/or frozen blackberries (optional).


Tip: If you have guests who do not drink alcohol, create a “mocktail” margarita with Sipp, lime juice, a salted rim, and garnish to make it more fun for them.
