I have to admit: I don’t drink tequila. I only imbibe during Margarita Week testing. It was my college drink – enough said, right? Last year, I served up a Sparkling Rosy Margarita because I felt the need to mask the tequila as much as possible.

This year I decided to be brave and use only tequila and grand mariner as the alcohol components. You know what? These very berry margaritas are tasty! The tequila shines through the bright pink berry syrup, so make sure to use your favorite because that flavor is not masked.

I used Tres Amigos Tequila Blanco because it was affordable and I liked the bottle! Haha, I’m telling you, I know nothing about tequila. Is this a good brand? It’s the same one I used in last year’s submission. Like, the exact same bottle, that I bought a year ago. I told you I don’t drink tequila!

What is your favorite tequila? Give me some top shelf suggestions in the comments!

  2. Oh my goodness I totally understand why you don’t drink it anymore…it wasn’t my college drink, but we did honeymoon in Mexico at an all-inclusive resort…and I didn’t have tequila for a loooong time afterwards! These drinks sound amazing, and so pretty!!

  4. Oh my… this looks so refreshing. Love that you used homemade fruity syrup. Yum! I haven’t had tequila margarita in a while. I’ll be making this very soon.

  5. I haven’t had a Margherita in years — I do remember the days. It looks very good and I’ll have to save the recipe for the ones who do enjoy the Margheritas. Our sons make a mean Upper Shelf Margherita — they worked as bartenders while in school. I think that may be the last time I had one. I love the color of yours.

  6. Margarita’s are my weakness especially fruit based one. Your berry maragarita looks colorful and delicious. I love silver and gold tequila.
