This year, the celebrations of Cinco de Mayo and the Kentucky Derby fall on different Saturdays; I think this should be a necessity! That allows me to not have to choose what to publish, I can do both! Margaritas are my favorite cocktail, they actually started the love so here are 20 Favorite Margaritas; I know you will love them too!

Margaritas seem to me to be the quintessential warm weather cocktail. It always amazes me that National Margarita Day is February 22? Whoever decided that? I mean really, who? Before I start that movement to get this day allocated to a summer month, I thought the least I could do was share the Favorite Margaritas I love that I’ve already posted so when you see my push to make it a three day holiday you can get onboard with me. Deal?

I seriously believe I’ve got almost all fruits covered…except blueberries. Why not a blueberry margarita? How can I consider this my all time list of 20 Favorite Margarita Cocktails and not include one of my favorite fruits?

Not sure actually how that happened so think I need to add that to my summer calendar, something new to look forward to…honestly I might have to make it today. Now that it’s on my mind and all. And drink it today too. 🙂

In the meantime let me share the ones I love, always starting with what I consider the Perfect Margarita. It takes a bit of time to reach that perfection as this recipe includes steeping the mixture for a couple of hours before serving it but trust me, it IS worth it. Not in the mood; OK, go for the quick and dirty version, but just this once OK?

The Perfect Margarita

This is my all time favorite of the whole list of 20 Favorite Margaritas; actually this is the margarita that changed margaritas for me. I hated them before I made my own and it’s as simple as one word. Reposado. Oops make that two. Reposado and Orange Liqueur (no triple sec here!).

Use good ingredients and fresh fruit and the difference will be remarkable. Don’t you DARE buy that premix stuff ever again…you will not be sorry!

Fresh Blackberry Margarita

This is a great combination of flavors; the tart fruit makes it a bit less sweet and the color is out of this world beautiful. I like pretty drinks, don’t you?

Prickly Pear Margarita

A long time pal has prickly pears on her property in Arizona; she sent some to me and the rest is history. I had heard Prickly Pear juice tasted like bubblegum and I get that might not be on your list to try but don’t let it stop you…this was absolutely amazing!

I was not prepared for how much we loved this drink; absolutely one of my favorite of 20 Favorite Margaritas!

Fresh Pineapple Margarita

Honestly this cocktail came about when I was at the market and looking for something I had yet to use in a margarita. Pineapple?!! Sure, and it’s delicious too!

Blackberry Serrano Margarita

Using any kind of hot pepper really adds a nice dimension to a margarita. Not too much mind you, we don’t want fire, just a bit of heat.

Casamigos Tequila Margarita

Made with Casamigos Tequila which was originally devised by George Clooney and pals. But don’t let that fool you…this is a truly quality product and the simplest of margaritas.

Strawberry and Basil Margarita

I discovered this combination at a tequila tasting…and have loved it ever since.

Raspberry Margarita Slushie

Meant to be a popsicle; when I added too much tequila for it to freeze, I had to compromise…and a slushy it is!

Jalapeno Margarita

Not for the faint of heart…this definitely has a kick from Jalapeno Tequila.

Strawberry Margarita

I think right after the classic margarita in popularity must be the Strawberry Margarita. I do recall when I couldn’t stand those first forays into margarita drinking years ago that sipping a strawberry one was delightful. Still is.

Margarita Watermelon

No, you read that right. This is not a watermelon margarita but watermelon infused with the flavors of margarita. Now this is summer only but save it for a nice day with a fabulous watermelon. So delish!

I do think I could make this list a mile long…here are a couple more!

Honestly not to beat a dead horse but how on earth did I miss those blueberries?

In case you need some foods too? Here are a couple of my favorites!

The Best Guacamole

OK, obviously not a margarita but you have to serve them with something right? Forget all the extravagant concoctions you might have seen; make your guacamole simple and let the avocado shine; put all the extras on the side. It’s truly the best!


Refried Bean and Beef Nachos

Try making your own refried beans for this dish; the link to do that is in the post…nothing beats them!

Chile Relleno Casserole

My favorite Mexican dish served in a casserole that makes it easy for a crowd. I first had this at a football game not long after moving to Colorado…it started my love for spicy peppers after a lifetime of avoiding the green bell variety!

Chile Relleno Casserole served on a white plate with a dollop of sour cream on top.

I hope you can find something among all of these cocktails and foods that suit you…I’m thinking for me, I’m ready for the first one again and ALL the food, how about you?
