Every year we have a Margarita Mix-Off at our house to determine which of our friends have the skills to take the gold medal each year.
This is one of those parties where all of our friends call throughout the year to ask 'when's the next party?'
Here's a sure way to have a blast at your next adults only party. Believe me with Tequila, things can get a bit messy, you don't want kids around at this party.
Use Sendomatic.com to find the perfect invitation. A good party has at least 4-6 couples so that there is a good range of margaritas to be made. Instruct each couple to bring fixin's for their best round of Margaritas.
**Don't forget to have your guest RSVP! You need to tell everyone how many margaritas they should be prepared to serve.
What makes this party fun is that presentation is just as important as flavor. Each couple will name their margarita for voting purposes. We enjoyed a great "squeeze my melons" margarita last year, which was a melon flavored margarita served in halves of hollowed honeydew melons. The creative ideas never cease to amaze us so encourage creativity and costumes!
Once your quest arrive, draw numbers to see who goes first, and get mixin!
Each couple takes a turn in the kitchen preparing their margarita while the rest of the guest chat and snack on the patio. After tasting the margarita each person votes individually on taste and presentation separately. (make pre-made voting cards before the party, it's much easier for everyone to use after a few margaritas).
Continue to taste and enjoy everyones creative margaritas. Vote at the end, tally the votes, and declare the best margarita maker in your hood. You can provide a nice prize for both taste and presentation!
