Glossary of Color Margarita Recipes

How cool are these colorful cocktails?! I had way to much fun with these Glossary of Color Margaritas! I, Ashley, got to play with both booze AND paint which doesn’t always equal a pretty outcome, but these turned out beautiful and tasty. If you are not familiar with Sugar & Cloth’s #glossaryofcolor or #glossaryofmacs hashtags on Instagram, go check them out and you’ll see where I got my colorful inspiration for these drinks!

With Cinco De Mayo quickly approaching, I knew wanted to do a trio of tequila tipples. Because this wasn’t your average cocktail post, I had to think about colors and layout first vs. ingredients (it’s usually the other way around.)

I chose red, orange, and yellow hues to create a cohesive citrusy scene. From there I decided on flavors, sticking to fruits in the same color family for each: Strawberry Watermelon for red, Pineapple Lemon for yellow, and Kumquat Orange for the, well, orange…

They all turned out lipsmackingly good and equally delicious, like they-go-down-way-to-easy kind of delicious!

Pick one to mix up based on your mood or host a fiesta and make them all! Personally I vote make them all, but clearly we’re all color lovers here, ha! Happy Cinco de Mayo in advance!
