Entertaining Tips and Recipes for your Cinco de Mayo Fiesta with SAUZA Tequila

Tip #1: It’s all in the presentation – Wow your friends with a fabulous celebration by creating a fun watermelon punch bowl to hold your delicious margarita.  To begin, start with a seedless watermelon. Using a sharp knife, carefully trim the bottom to make it a flat surface. Next, cut off the top (about ¼ of the watermelon) and with a melon baller hollow out the flesh. Use an ice cream scoop or large spoon to scrape the inside walls of the watermelon clean. Fill with your favorite margarita recipe and enjoy!

Tip #2: The New Frozen Margarita – Create a fun spin on the frozen margarita by making delicious and refreshing popsicles.

SAUZA-RITA POPSICLE

2 parts Sauza® Blue Silver 100% Agave Tequila

2 parts DeKuyper® 03 Premium Orange Liqueur

8 parts fresh squeezed lime juice (8-12 small limes, usually)

4 parts sugar

8 parts water

12 3-oz disposable paper cups

12 wooden popsicle sticks or spoons

Directions: Heat water and sugar in a small sauce pan until completely dissolved and the water is clear. Let cool. Pour into a pitcher with lime juice, tequila, and orange liqueur. Pour 5 tbsp of margarita into each cup. Place cups into a baking dish and put the dish in the freezer. After about 2 hours, start checking the popsicles. Once they’re frozen enough to support the wooden stick, insert a stick into each popsicle, pushing ¾ of the way into the popsicle. Let freeze several more hours or until completely frozen (or freeze overnight). To serve, peel the paper cup away from the popsicle, starting at the seam of the cup, and carefully remove the bottom.

Makes 12 popsicles.
