Make Your Own Margarita Bar
If you’re hosting friends at your place, a Margarita Bar is the perfect way to cater to everyone’s tastes while giving you, the host, the freedom to actually mix, mingle and entertain. I hosted some friends at my place last Friday for a monthly get together. The Margarita Bar was a fun way to encourage everyone to play mixologist for the night.
For this setup, I premade a large batch of classic margarita that served as a base. Then, I encouraged guests to elevate their margarita using a host of different ingredients, like fresh mint, cucumber habanero syrup, and more. Guests were encouraged to make their own creations. But I also shared 3 simple variations that were easy to recreate.
1. Cucumber Habanero Margarita
Classic Margarita + 1 oz Root 23 Cucumber Habanero Syrup
2. Strawberry Mint Margarita
Classic Margarita + 4 mint leaves + 2 fresh strawberries
3. Sparkling Mango Margarita
Classic Margarita + 1 oz mango nectar + splash of prosecco
Here are all the things you’ll need to set up your very own margarita bar:
A large pitcher or beverage dispenser for your classic margarita
Signage with suggested recipes to help guests get started
Rimming salts or sugars
A few bottles of Prosecco
Root 23 Cucumber Habanero Syrup
