Thanks to the courageous men and women who served our country, we are fortunate to have our Memorial Day Weekends filled with fun outdoor celebrations, family get-togethers and exciting trips.

Whether you are going away or throwing a barbecue in your backyard, what better way to celebrate the weekend than with a delicious cocktail?

Here are some tasty cocktail recipes, including the Sauza® Summer Salute, to fix up on your three-day weekend!

  • 1 ½ parts of Sauza® Silver Tequila
  • 4 parts cranberry juice
  • 2 parts lemon soda
  • 2 mint leaves for garnish
  • Lime wedge for garnish

Preparation: Combine all ingredients except mint leaves in a tall glass. Serve glass with 2 mint leaves. Serve cold or iced. If you want to rim the glass with sugar before pouring the margarita, simply run a lime wedge around the edge of the glass and then dip the rim of the glass in a plate of sugar. Add mint leaves and lime wedge for garnish.
