Cinco de Mayo Fiesta with Sauza® Tequila - Entertaining - @lacegraceblog1

**This post was paid for by Sauza® Tequila

What isn’t there to love about Cinco de Mayo? Tacos, guac, friends and MARGARITAS! Nothing is better. I love celebrating this fun holiday (which rightful so is the holiday with the biggest tequila consumption).  Thanks to Sauza® Tequila I was able to throw a fun, little fiesta with some of my best girlfriends. There was tons of yummy food, delicious margs and great conversation.  

Sauza® Tequila sent me a fun box filled with goodies to help kickstart my Cinco de Mayo fiesta.  Sauza® Signature Blue Silver Tequila is crafted at the renowned Sauza Distillery in Jalisco, Mexico- so they know their stuff when it comes to tequila and throwing a party!

Have you ever tried Sauza® Signature Blue Silver Tequila? It is one of my favorite tequilas ever and makes for the best margaritas.  Made with 100 percent pure weber agave, makes this stuff perfect for authentic pitcher style margaritas to share with friends.  I am used to making margaritas one glass at time but Sauza recommended switching it up a bit and sent over some amazing pitcher margarita recipes. (see below)

The fiesta box included everything I needed to make the perfect margarita (pitcher, Sauza® Signature Blue Silver Tequila, Margarita Cocktail Mix, & Lime Salt for rimming), serving bowl + tortilla chips and fun cloth napkins. All I needed were a few decorations and some grub. 

I headed to the nearest party store for some festive pendant banners and blow up cactus to decorate our little gold bar cart to house the margarita line up.  (also grabbed a festive table cloth)

As far as food goes, I had all of the fiesta staples; tortilla chips (various kinds), homemade guac (try out my foolproof guacamole- here), salsa verde and one of my favorite taco recipes of all time; salmon tacos with tomatillo avocado slaw, (which I will be re-sharing on the blog soon) and all the toppings necessary for a make your own taco bar. 

My gals Sara, Lisa, Jesye, Maria and Casey arrived ready for quality girl time. Even though it was a Sunday (whoops!) we didn’t care and chatted for hours around margaritas and delicious food. What an amazing time! Plus having the margaritas already made, pitcher style, made things less stressful on me and allowed me to enjoy myself.
