Quick & Simple Margarita Making Party | Host a Mexican-inspired margarita making party to celebrate Cinco de Mayo… or just for summer fun!
So I know this is very last minute, with Cinco de Mayo being today, but I thought it would be fun to show you how to set up a quick & simple margarita making party! Even beyond this festive day of the year known for its celebration of Mexican-American culture and cuisine, margaritas are a perfect summer drink.
They are my absolute favorite- I’ve always been a citrus fan, and they are such a fun and tasty cocktail with all of the contrasting flavors of sweet, salty, and sour.
Quick & Simple Margarita Making Party
I’ve shown you my favorite way before to set up a snack table for guests, by labeling all of the different parts. I thought that method would lend itself perfectly to this particular theme!
I’m not exactly known for my use of bright colors, but it was fun going outside of my usual style!
I loved the bright pink peonies and the orangey-peach roses. So gorgeous!

The napkins reminded me of a Mexican cement tile pattern. I loved that they are neutral, so I can use them in other places, but they are still on theme.
No gathering is complete without some yummy snacks! The wooden root bowl was from Target, here. They were all a little different, but so interesting!
People have different margarita preferences, whether they lean salty or sweet, frozen or on the rocks, or with flavoring.
My favorite trick for a perfect rim is to use agave nectar to stick the salt or raw sugar on.You can give a few fruit purees for flavor options, and then blend or use the shaker. I love this mason jar shaker lid that my sister-in-law gave me as a gift!
Don’t forget the garnish!
I will be sharing my favorite margarita recipe soon, but this mixer is awesome if I’m short on time!
I love my margarita classic: on the rocks with a salt rim. Yum!
I hope this party inspired you! Happy Cinco de Mayo- and Happy (almost) Summer!
