National Tequila Day Cocktail Guide
National Tequila Day is today and here’s a simple guide to help celebrate the holiday properly. This year, Sauza Tequila is inviting all tequila lovers to celebrate with a mid-week margarita, America’s #1 cocktail!
A classic margarita is enjoyable any day of the year, but especially in celebration of this fun holiday, that just happens to fall during the hottest point of the year. I wanted to share a few of the recipes Sauza whipped up to help make the most of the occasion!
- Last year more than 40 new tequilas were introduced to the market
- 100% Agave products lead the pack on what consumers are gravitating towards (Tequila that has been produced from only the fermented and distilled juices of the Blue Webber Agave)
- Convenience and flavor innovation are two trends that we¹re seeing within the Tequila category. Consumers are more open to unique offerings and flavor expansions from their favorite brands than in previous years,which is leading to new innovations (Sauza® Sparkling Margarita) and more creative cocktails and offerings!
- The US consumes almost twice as much Tequila as Mexico each year
- In the last 10 years, Tequila volume has grown by 72%
Combine the ingredients without ice and shake vigorously. Then just pour the mixture over ice in a 14 parts glass, garnish and enjoy what the hint of orange does for a traditional favorite!
