The Classic Margarita recipe
The Classic Margarita – Cazadores

1. Tequila Margaritas 

A classic margarita is always a hit at parties, especially during the holidays. Add some cranberry juice and sugar to the rim of your glass to give your Christmas cocktail margarita an extra festive touch. You can also garnish it with fresh cranberries and lime wedges for an added pop of color. This holiday twist on a traditional favorite will surely be a hit at any gathering! 


  • 2 Parts Cazadores (or your favorite tequila!)
  • 3/4 Part Agave Nectar
  • 1 Part Fresh Lime Juice
  • 1 Lime Wheel (Garnish)
  • Optional: Cranberry or Pomegranate Juice
  • Optional: Cranberries (Garnish)


Pour all ingredients into a Boston shaker, add ice, shake and strain over fresh ice into a rocks glass. Garnish with a lime wheel.

For a Christmas touch: Add cranberry or pomegranate juice. Add cranberries to a toothpick for a festive Christmas garnish.

2. Ready to Drink Cocktails 

If you’re looking for convenience without sacrificing flavor, ready-to-drink cocktails are your best bet. With just one bottle, you can have an entire batch of delicious beverages in no time. Or grab a 4-pack of your favorite cocktail – either way, there’s no excuse to come empty-handed to your next holiday party!

Don’t forget to offer up some fun garnishes like pomegranates or mint leaves for an added festive look! 

3. Spritzers 

If you’re looking for a light and refreshing Christmas cocktail for your guests this holiday season, try serving up some spritzers!

  • Mix 1 part white wine with 1 part sparkling water or club soda over ice.
  • Add a splash of citrus juice or simple syrup for sweetness, if desired.
  • Garnish with fresh mint leaves or berries for a festive touch. 

The combination of sweet and tart flavors will have your guests asking for seconds in no time!  

4. Fine Wines 

A good selection of fine wines is always appreciated at any gathering, especially during the holidays! For reds, stick to medium-bodied varietals like Pinot Noir, while whites should be light and crisp such as Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay. Be sure to stock up on both sweet and dry options so everyone can find something they love!  To give your glassware an extra festive touch, try adding cranberries or cinnamon sticks as garnishes.
