Celebrate National Margarita Day with this Highland Margarita! This aint your average margarita.
The combination of tequila blanco, freshly squeezed grapefruit juice and lime juice, and agave nectar, is sweet, tart, and just a touch savory.
This citrusy margarita is the answer to your case of the winter blahs. One sip and you’ll be transported to warm, sunny days.
Tequila Cazadores was founded in the Highlands of Arandas, Mexico, hence the name of this cocktail – Highland Margarita.
Agave from the Highlands has a unique flavor compared to other tequilas – with more citrus, floral, and sweet notes.
As a graphic designer, I always love to learn the background of product names and design. “Cazadores” is Spanish for hunters. The stag imagery on the bottle was chosen because Don Jose, the founder saw the native Highland deer as a symbol of valor, boldness, perseverance, and pride.
Tequila Cazadores Blanco goes straight from distillation to the bottle. Tequila Cazadores Blanco is bottled after distillation to preserve its clean taste and soft finish. Tequila Cazadores is a quality tequila at an affordable price.
Essences of pure agave shine through, creating a clean taste and a short, sweet finish. This natural, light flavor makes Tequila Cazadores Blanco ideal for mixing.
To celebrate National Margarita Day, invite some friends over and enjoy a Highland Margarita. Salud!
