Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with custom printed glasses…and the tastiest margarita recipes from allrecipes.com.
For anybody who’s counting, Cinco de Mayo is only three weeks away. There’s still time to order custom printed margarita glasses for that party you know you want to throw. There’s still time to purchase the necessary ingredients to make some awesome margaritas, too.
Whether you need to place an order for printed margarita glasses for that “little” backyard party you’re planning or whether you’re planning to throw an event to celebrate the day and promote your business, we can deliver. Print your logo or personal message on custom margarita glasses from Show Your Logo and let your guests walk away from the event with an icy cool give away. Of course, our high quality glassware, complete with durable imprint, will last for many drinks to come. Stock your bar with tequila and logo glassware this Cinco de Mayo.
Looking for a highly rated, classic tequila recipe? Allrecipes.com is my favorite source for all recipes, including recipes for mixed drinks. My favorite feature of the site? Site users come back and rate the recipes after they’ve actually made them and taste tested them. Unlike a cookbook, which is hit or miss at best, I always feel confident that I’m making something that will actually be worth my time and effort when I choose a highly rated recipe.
Print custom margarita glasses at Show Your Logo as low as $2.38/each.
To make four servings of one of allrecipe’s highest-rated margaritas, fill a blender with crushed ice. Add one 6 oz can of frozen limeade concentrate, 6 oz of your favorite tequila, and 2 oz of triple sec. Blend until smooth. Serve in your custom printed margarita glasses and add a slice of lime for garnish.
And if you’re in the mood for something fruiter or sweeter? Try the Ultimate Frozen Strawberry Margarita. Yum. Happy Friday, everyone. I’m going to go prep my blender.
Ultimate Frozen Strawberry Margaritas (4 servings):
Fill blender with ice, 6 oz of your favorite tequila, 2 ounces of triple sec, 8 oz of frozen, sliced strawberries in syrup, and 4 oz of frozen limeade concentrate. Blend until smooth. Dip the rims of your custom printed margarita glasses in powdered sugar, pour, and serve.

Confession: I’m not a wine connoisseur. Not even close. When I’m hosting a dinner and one of my guests asks, “What can I bring?” I always request a bottle of wine. I let the wine drinkers figure out what pairs best with a pineapple-marinated Easter ham or our traditional Swedish meatballs on Christmas Eve. I have no clue. I’m the type who’s happy to take a few gulps of whatever between hostess duties to get me through the event.
I would, however, like to rectify this situation. As my children, nieces, and nephews are getting older, the pace of our holiday dinners is slowing down. I’m spending less time on tasks like removing two-year-olds from amongst my china and wine glasses on the dining room table and more time just….sitting…and enjoying my family’s company. I would like to take this opportunity to notice all those subtle flavors I’m supposed to appreciate in a quality bottle of wine. I would like to take the time to notice of how a bottle of wine pairs with whatever food it is I’m serving. Heck, I’d even like to know what kind of wine to buy myself without hitting up my guests to do it for me.
For my fellow wine ignoramuses, here’s a pretty cool start in our wine-pairing education:

As you can probably tell from my Pinterest Board titled “Mason Jar Love,” I am, like many pinners, enamored with Mason jars. They are a nostalgic nod to our past, bringing us back to lazy Sunday afternoons drinking lemonade at Grandma’s house out of old jars. There’s just something about Mason jars that never goes out of style, making them excellent candidates for vases, glass light shades, drinkware at parties, and more crafts than can even be counted. Search “Mason jar” on Pinterest and see for yourself.
If you own a business, you just may want to capitalize on Mason jar mania.
