While Cinco de Mayo drink menus typically feature a variety of high-calorie, high-sugar Margaritas, Tres Agaves, producer of award-winning, 100-percent agave Tequilas, has created the world’s only USDA certified organic margarita mix. It’s a perfect complement to Tres Agaves’ Tequilas for a refreshing, low-calorie cocktail.

“Even cocktail enthusiasts who insist on fresh squeezed juices in their cocktails are converting to our organic margarita mix for its simple, all-natural ingredients and taste.” said Eric Rubin, Brand Director of Tres Agaves Products.

Cinco de Mayo is the heart of Margarita season. It’s our favorite south-of-the-border holiday – a time when Mexican restaurants teem with revelers enjoying friends, tacos and Margaritas.

While Cinco de Mayo drink menus typically feature a variety of high-calorie, high-sugar Margaritas, Tres Agaves, producer of award-winning, 100-percent agave Tequilas, has created the world’s only USDA certified organic margarita mix. It’s a perfect complement to Tres Agaves’ Tequilas for a refreshing, low-calorie cocktail.

According to Gourmet magazine, the Margarita is the “…most popular cocktail in the United States.” Tres Agaves’ version of this ever-popular drink is incredibly easy to make: just combine 2 parts premium Tequila (preferably Tres Agaves Blanco or Reposado) and 3 parts Tres Agaves Organic Margarita Mix.

At only 68 calories per 3oz. serving, Tres Agaves has revolutionized the margarita mix by creating a simple, premium blend of only four all-natural ingredients: organic lime juice, organic agave nectar, pure filtered water, and Vitamin C. The taste could not be more light and refreshing. Tres Agaves has crafted the perfect balance of agave (sweet) and lime (tart).

“Even cocktail enthusiasts who insist on fresh squeezed juices in their cocktails are converting to our organic margarita mix for its simple, all-natural ingredients and taste.” said Eric Rubin, Brand Director of Tres Agaves Products. “The agave nectar and lime bring out the dynamic flavors of Tequila, rather than burying them in heavy sugars and corn syrups. It makes the ultimate, low-calorie Margarita or a flavorful, non-alcoholic limeade.”

Tres Agaves Organic Margarita Mix is available for $7.99 (suggested retail price) per 1L bottle online at http://www.tresagaves.com or at retailers like Whole Foods across much of the United States.

Tres Agaves has prepared several unique yet simple recipes for Cinco de Mayo cocktails that can be made with its organic margarita mix. Each recipe makes a tasty mocktail, as well, by simply removing the Tequila. Photos are available upon request:
