LA ADELITA TEQUILA Recipes for National Margarita Day

Pineapple Margarita

Ahead of NATIONAL MARGARITA DAY on Monday, Feb. 22, we want you to get acquainted with La Adelita Tequila; a boutique single-estate distillery in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico, making small-batch craft tequila. It gets its name in honor of the courageous woman, The Adelitas, who were instrumental fighters during the Mexican Revolution. 

There are 5 variations, Blanco, Reposado, Anejo, Cristalino and Extra Anejo.

This tequila will allow you to indulge without feeling guilty because tequila has less calories than most other liquors making it the perfect base for any cocktail.  Enjoy these three margarita recipes that put a twist on the classic cocktail!  

All recipes were curated and created by #LaAdelitaArmy: A brand-created program that supports women in need during the pandemic.

Cheers!
