Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with Sauza® Signature Blue Silver Tequila & fresh entertaining ideas that will have you hosting in style!
Cinco de Mayo is such a fun holiday– you’ve got an easy-going vibe, tasty snacks, and margaritas by the pitcher. Let’s be real, there really is no better party combo than chips and margaritas. I could live off of tortilla chips and fresh salsa. And Cinco de Mayo is actually the biggest holiday of the year for tequila!
Our favorite tequila for classic Margaritas is Sauza® Signature Blue Silver Tequila. It’s our go-to for a smooth flavor that everyone loves. It pairs nicely with Margarita mix. We really love the dimension of flavors, and the key lime notes are amazing with the tequila. We’re big fans of margaritas in this house, and this combo gets served time and again. Don’t mess with a good thing, right?
Sauza® Signature Blue Silver Tequila is crafted at the renowned Sauza Distillery in Jalisco, Mexico, and is made with 100 percent blue weber agave. Perfect for authentic margaritas to share with friends!
For our Cinco de Mayo celebration, we served up classic Sauza® Tequila Margarita pitchers (recipe below), and added a variety of chips & salsa options. It really helps to pair things down to the essentials, especially when you want a casual get together– or you’re looking to highlight the drinks! With awesome margaritas at your party, you just need a few snacks to make it a fiesta!
We’re all about effortless entertaining at our house. The less we stress over party planning, more likely we are to host. Makes sense, right? Not to mention, simple get-togethers can be the most fun! Effortless party planning means having the basics covered (like an amazing marg) and adding a few touches to make your guests feel at home.
Feeling the same vibe? I’ll share some tips we’ve gathered over the years, so you can host your own fiesta with style.
Party Size Drinks + Apps Having a party spread with snacks guests can grab and munch at leisure lends itself to a chill atmosphere. We like to mix up drinks by the pitcher– it’s easier for the host, and creates a signature drink for your party!
Easy No-Cook Snacks Go for simple, uncomplicated snacks and finger food. We love to do a chips & salsa spread for our Cinco de Mayo because it’s a cinch to set-up. We always keep Paqui Tortilla Chips around for hosting friends and neighbors last minute. Whatever we don’t already have in our pantry can be easily picked-up at the local store. Try different flavors and varieties of dips for an eclectic mix of snacks.
Fresh Ingredients + Garnish Any good host knows that the secret to a fun party drink is the garnish. Use simple, fresh ingredients, and add a bit of flair for a memorable drink. We love this Bespoke Provisions Tangy Lime Sea Salt for a zing of flavor in our margaritas.
Simple Decor Less is more, when it comes to effortless entertaining. Neutral colors and classic serving pieces win the day. To keep things simple; use what you have, whenever you can. I love my turquoise Mexican-inspired serving pieces for setting the scene. And how gorgeous are those napkins? I love the Mexican-inspired chic style.
