Nothing brings energy to a crowd the same way Margarita does. Its classic form is tequila, lime juice and orange liqueur —a perfect blend that hits all the right notes of sweet, tart, salt and bitter.

The Altos Margarita is perhaps the best recipe for Margaritas. It calls for three ingredients: Altos Olmeca tequila, honey and citrus. Each bottle of Olmeca Altos Plata is made from 100% blue agave grown in Los Altos. So, expect some exciting flavors here and a smooth finish.

The lemon and lime add to the tart/sour of the cocktail, while honey adds to the sweetness. The result? A crisp and tasty Margarita worth pouring for life’s happiest moments.

Whether you like it frozen, on the rocks, salt or no salt, spicy or sweet, there are endless ways to enjoy the Margarita.

The Best Olmeca Altos Plata Tequila for Margaritas

To make the best, you will need:

  • 2 parts tequila Olmeca
  • A handful of diced citrus (lime and lemon)
  • 2-3 bar spoons of honey

Let’s talk about of these ingredients a little bit:

  • Altos tequila: The Olmeca Altos tequila carries a naturally sweet freshness to elevate your energy to a whole new level.
  • Lime and lemon: Lemon and Lime add to the tart of the drink. Be sure to use the juiciest fruits you can find.
  • Honey*: Honey adds to the sweetness of the cocktail. Ensure you’re using the best organic honey for a fresh-tasting cocktail.

*For those looking to make the ‘Mexican version,’ Altos recommends using agave syrup for the sweetener.

How to Make Altos Margarita

Mix all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake vigorously for 15-20 seconds. Serve and garnish with the lemon and lime used for the shake.

Unlike the other Margarita recipes where you have to strain or even double strain, all you have to do with the Altos Margarita is shake then serve.

You can opt to salt the rims of your glasses if you like the taste. To do this:

  1. Pour salt in a shallow bowl or small plate
  2. Run a lime wedge around the edge of the glass
  3. Dip the rim in the salt to coat and shake off the excess.

History of Margarita

The history of the Margarita is as unclear as your mind gets after too many Margaritas. Depending on who you ask, its origins date back to the 1930s, the 1940s or nonexistent. Some believe the Margarita is just a twist on a classic cocktail named daisy. Margarita means daisy in Spanish.

We can argue all we want, but one thing is for sure. Margaritas are damn delicious! Mix up your classic cocktail with premium tequila Altos Plata from the highlands of Jalisco, and enjoy the taste of Mexico today.

Olmeca silver tequila is a naturally smooth and high-quality tequila widely recognized for its complex flavors and distinct aromas.
