Imagine a day out on the water – boating, fishing, jet skiing, sun bathing, enjoying the sun and the fresh air. When you think about drinking an ice-cold cocktail – doesn’t a margarita sound refreshing? Traditional with a twist is our motto and a Vodka Margarita is our answer to your cocktail desires!
A Yacht Life Vodka Margarita is the perfect tropical alternative to your classic margarita drink. Typically crafted with tequila as its base, and triple sec and lime juice added into the mix, the margarita is closely related to what was referred to as the brandy daisy; margarita meaning “daisy” in Spanish. One of the earliest historical recollections dates margaritas back to the late 1930s when it was first invented by Carlos “Danny” Herrera at his restaurant Rancho La Gloria, in California. Rather than brandy, he recreated the drink with Tequila.
Since its conception, bartenders and mixologists all over the world have been inventing hundreds of variations—and this is ours!
- 2 OZ vodka
- 1 OZ lime juice
- ½ OZ triple sec
- ½ OZ simple syrup
- Lime slice for garnish, if desired
Start by adding Yacht Life Vodka, lime juice, triple sec, and simple syrup over ice into a shaker. Once shaken for about twenty seconds, strain the remaining liquid into a freshly salted margarita glass. Garnish with a lime wedge and you’re ready to relax under the shade while sipping your delicious concoction.
Enjoy and Drink Responsibly!
