Our 3 Favorite Margarita Recipes

May 3, 2021


Erin Schrader

When someone on the Living in Yellow team threw out the idea of an office margarita tasting, we couldn’t say “where’s the tequila?” fast enough! Twist our arms, fine, we’ll taste test the margs! Just in time for Cinco de Mayo, we wanted to share our three favorites with you so you can sip them too!

And of course, we had add in some tacos to complete our tasting. Because what’s a marg without a side of a taco or three? If you’re looking for ideas for hosting your own fiesta, be sure to check out this post on building your own Taco Board!

So grab your tequila, your limes, and maybe a friend or two, because baby we’re making margs! The only thing left to do is decide salt or sugar!

Erin’s Frozen Margarita

Blend, baby, blend

Erin made hers in this Margaritaville machine, but you could also use a blender! Just add in some ice!

8 fl oz Gold Tequila
4 fl oz Triple Sec 
2 fl oz Lime Juice 
2 fl oz Orange Juice
6 fl oz Margarita Mix 

Blend away to your hearts content!

Katy’s Spicy Margarita

Some it like hot

2 oz. Tequila 
½ oz. Triple Sec 
1 Whole Lime
¼ Jalapeno sliced

Shake it up and enjoy! If it’s tasting a little strong, add more lime juice!

Claire’s Classic Margarita

For all you classy ladies

2 oz. Tequila [we love Maestro Dobel Silver Tequila]
.75 oz. Triple Sec [Lazzaroni Triplo is our fav] 
1 oz. Agave Syrup [or .5 agave, .5 water]
1.25 oz. Lime juice [fresh is always best!]

Mix to taste! If it’s slightly on the strong side, do less tequila [1.75 oz.] and more lime [1.5 oz.]! Cheers!

As much as I love shorts season [aka summer] I sometimes despise the actual “denim shorts season” itself. Shorts can be tricky. Sometimes they are too tight, too short, too loose and the list of all of the discomforts of shorts goes on. Today, we’re here to put some of those discomforts to rest and […]

If there’s one trend I’m happily hopping on board with, it’s the white sneaker rage. Maybe they never went out of style, maybe it’s more socially acceptable than ever to wear tennies with every. single. outfit. Either way, I’m here for it.

If there is one thing I have learned over the past year of life it is that 30 minutes on a bike can change your life in the best way possible. After years of hearing how great a workout on a stationary bike can be, Shawn & I finally decided to put the pedal to […]
