National Margarita Day is Friday! While not an official holiday, Barman “Willie” deserves a drink in his honor after creating the first official Margarita around 1934 in Mexico City. We don’t know about you, but we will use any reason to enjoy a cocktail, especially one using the world’s top-rated tequila, Tequila Partida.

Tequila Partida, made from 100% blue agave in the heart of Mexico’s historic Tequila region, adds a healthy twist to America’s favorite cocktail. All-natural and created with fewer calories than traditional margaritas, this refreshing take on a cocktail classic works great with Partida Blanco or Reposado Tequilas.


The Partida Margarita

1 ½ ounces Partida Tequila (Blanco or Reposado)

1 ounce fresh squeezed lime juice (the juice of one whole lime)

¾ ounces Partida Agave Nectar (to taste)

¾ ounces pure water

Shake all ingredients with ice in standard bar shaker.

Taste. Add additional lime juice if you prefer more tartness; add more agave nectar for more sweetness.

Serve in glass on rocks. No garnish, no salt.
