Looking for a good go-to and affordable blanco tequila? We like the lineup from Dulce Vida. (Not sponsored) It doesn’t break the bank, it’s organic, additive-free, and 100% agave.

Making a balanced cocktail like this orange aperol margarita

Creating a balanced cocktail like this orange aperol margarita is very important. You know this if you are a bartender looking for inspo or a host looking to impress your guests. You want a mix of sweet and sour (not that bottled garbage sweet and sour mix) that feels just right on your tongue. Fresh juices bring a natural sweetness without anything artificial. Ice is like a cool buddy – it chills your drink and adds a bit of water to mellow things out. Don’t forget the finishing touch – a garnish makes it look as good as it tastes. Play around with the amounts until you find your perfect blend. Making a cocktail should be fun, so relax, experiment, and cheers to a well-balanced drink!
