In honor of the upcoming Cinco de Mayo festivities, we’re thrilled to present a tantalizing concoction from Costa Tequila, a custom Aloe Vera Yuzu Margarita. Crafted with care, this recipe embodies the spirit of celebration and innovation, offering a delightful twist on a beloved classic.

At the heart of this delectable margarita lies the exceptional craftsmanship of Florida-based Costa Tequila.

Traditionally, these regions produce tequila separately, each imbued with its unique characteristics. Tequila from the Highlands boasts fruity, sweet, and soft nuances, while its Lowlands counterpart offers a robust interplay of peppery, earthy, and spicy notes. Costa Tequila’s innovative approach intentionally blends these disparate profiles, resulting in a harmonious fusion that celebrates the rich diversity of agave.
