Thanks to Sauza® Tequila, I was able to pull together a “fiesta-worthy” celebration with a few close friends. It was complete with Mexican-inspired serving pieces, awesome food, and of course… TEQUILA!

It’s no secret that I love getting together with friends, margaritas and of course, good food. When I was invited to host a Cinco de Mayo party with some of my closest friends… of course I said yes!
I’ve learned over the years that when hosting a party, serving food and drinks in big batches makes things a WHOLE lot easier. Besides, I’d rather be a part of the festivities than behind the scenes preparing food and mixing cocktails. This get-together was a breeze because everything was made in batches and ready to eat and drink as soon as my friends arrived.
So for this get-together, I made a pitcher full of margaritas with Sauza® Tequila so I wouldn’t have to spend a lot of time making each cocktail individually. I also made a big batch of my Slow Cooker Mexican Shredded Beef with all of the fixings for the ultimate tacos and nachos. Easy peasy!
Made with 100 percent blue weber agave, Sauza® Signature Blue Silver Tequila is perfect for authentic pitcher-style margaritas to share with friends… which means less work for me and more time to enjoy the party!
This party was a cinch to throw together! By making the margaritas and shredded Mexican beef in big batches, all I really had to do was slice and dice the toppings for the tacos and nachos. My favorites are cheese, tomatoes, black olives, lettuce and onions.
I also served guacamole and salsa… the perfect Mexican fiesta!
Happy Cinco de Mayo and I hope these easy (and delicious) recipes inspire you to throw a fiesta of your own!
As always, please drink responsibly.Print
