The Auberge Margarita

May 4, 2016

You’ve got the chips, the guac, the tequila and the limes – don’t you dare use a premade margarita mix! The Auberge du Soleil bartenders are here to the rescue with a Margarita recipe you’ll want to shake up all year long!

The margarita is one of the world’s most famous cocktails, and it lends itself to experimentation like no other. Not that you need an excuse to make margaritas at home, but “observing” Cinco de Mayo gives you as good an excuse as any. (Isn’t the fact you got through the workday good enough?) If you’re choosing to skip the Cinco de Mayo celebration at the Auberge Bistro & Bar, for a quiet celebration at home, this recipe for The Auberge Margarita will certainly strike your fancy.
