Today is National Tequila day, and I cannot think of anything better than a Margarita made with Altos Tequila!! Let’s be serious, just for a moment. Margaritas are e v e r y t h i n g on a hot summer day. Besides the fact that it seems sacrilegious not to drink one on National Tequila Day.
I’m literally drinking one right now. Don’t judge.
A n y w a y. Lucky you, Bevrage has Altos on our app. That means that you can celebrate National Tequila Day without being completely broke for the rest of the weekend- because who needs that? That being said, here are some amazing drink recipes featuring Altos<3
My absolute favorite margarita drink- possibly of all time- is a grapefruit margarita (insert obnoxious heart emojis).
1 Grapefruit wedge
1/4 C. fresh grapefruit juice
1 Tbs. fresh lime juice
1 tsp. sugar
1/4 C. Altos Tequila
1/4 C. club soda
Pour some kosher salt on a plate. Rub half of rim of a highball glass with grapefruit wedge; dip rim of glass in salt. Combine grapefruit juice, lime juice, and sugar in glass; stir until sugar is dissolved. Stir in Altos, add ice, and top off with club soda. Garnish with grapefruit wedge.

like love some spice in my margarita. Jalapeños all day. If you don’t like spicy drinks skip this one, or you’re gonna have a bad time. For all of the people that feel the same as I do, here’s a spicy cucumber-jalapeño margarita:
Be. Still. My. Heart.
1/2 C. Fresh lime juice
1/2 C. Altos Silver
1/4 C. Orange liqueur
1/4 C. Simple Syrup
4 Slices of cucumber
1 jalapeno halved
Ice & Salt
Mix together the lime juice, tequila, orange liqueur, simple syrup, cucumber and jalapenos in a large pitcher. Chill for at least 1 hour (the longer the margarita sits, the more the cucumber and jalapeno flavors infuse into the drink).
Serve over ice in salt-rimmed glasses, if desired.

Feeling fancy? This margarita is only slightly pretentious, and oh so delicious. Meet the Lavender Margarita.
Love at first sip.
2 oz. Altos Silver
1/2 oz. Orange liqueur
1 oz. Lavender simple syrup
Dried lavender (told you-pretentious)
In a shaker, combine 2 oz. silver tequila, 1/2 oz. Cointreau, 1 oz. simple syrup and the juice of half a lime and let sit.
On a plate, mix the sugar and dried lavender and use it to rim the outside of a rocks glass.
Fill the glass with ice. Shake and strain the contents of the strainer into the glass.
Now put on your hipster glasses, possibly a fedora, and sip this while you play your vintage guitar in the park.
