Cinco de Mayo Party Ideas - Margarita Recipe - Free Printables - Living Locurto

Cinco de Mayo is this coming up soon and what better excuse to enjoy a fresh margarita with friends! I love having casual get togethers with my neighbors. Just because it’s a casual or a last-minute gathering, doesn’t mean you can’t do something special.

I’ve got some easy ideas for entertaining in style on a budget! And of course, that includes Free Cinco de Mayo Party Printables.

I’m sharing my favorite margarita recipe! Besides it tasting delicious, it’s one of the easiest drinks to make, especially when you need large batches for parties.

I plan to take jars of these margaritas to my neighbor’s home for a ladies afternoon by the pool.  Jars are a great way to display food and drinks, and I always have my cabinets full of them!

All you need is:

Margarita Recipe

  • 1 can frozen limeade
  • 1 empty limeade can Tequila
  • 1 empty limeade can of water
  • 1 bottle light beer

Mix all ingredients in a pitcher. It’s that easy!

** For kids, substitute with lemonade or limeade

Jars

  • Jelly Jars (12 for $9 at your local grocery store)
  • Cupcake Liners
  • Sharpie
  • Free Printable Cinco de Mayo Tags
  • Scissors
  • Small Hole Punch
  • Straws
  • Twine or ribbon

Besides the margarita ingredients, I had all of these items in my home, so this didn’t cost me much and it took just a few more minutes to create a pretty display!

After mixing the drink in a large pitcher, pour into the jars. Add some sliced limes. Then use the cupcake liners to personalize the jar tops! Write your friend’s names on the top or leave blank and bring along a pen for people to write their own name.

Pack the jars and some extra limes in a basket or cooler and you’re ready for the party! Before serving, shake the margarita jar gently to mix the ingredients.

I packed these drinks in an old wooden box, then used it for a display. For the banner, I tied a string of white twine around the box and attached the tags to the string with tiny clothes pins. To soak up some of the moisture from the drinks, I lined the top of the box or with scrapbook paper.

The tiny clothes pins are from Michaels. Aren’t they cute? You could use tape or punch holes in the tags for the string.

Use the Free Printable Cinco de Mayo tags on straws as well.

The only down side to this simple idea is your friends will want you to bring the drinks over all of the time!!
