Taking My Happy Hour Margarita to the Next Level

Y’all the sun is finally out this spring! Seriously, I thought the frigid temperatures were never going to end. But, now it’s sunny, 80 degrees, and I’m ready to hit the rooftop every evening for happy hour. One of the best parts about my rooftop happy hours is avoiding the crowds and enjoying a relaxing sunset – and a few cocktails – with just a couple friends.

I also love being able to pull together a delicious happy hour spread with a moment’s notice and one of the keys to doing so is having a nice liquor on hand that sets the tone for the evening.


I’ll be honest, I haven’t always been a tequila drinker. Back in my younger days, when I was drinking whatever tequila was the cheapest at the liquor store, I felt like tequila was thick going down (in shot form, of course, ugh!) and just stayed as far away as possible – unless it was in a sickly sweet margarita. Luckily now my tastes have changed and I’ve discovered  Maestro Dobel Diamante Tequila.

A smooth tequila crafted for slowly sipping, this Diamante tequila is so refreshing to savor on the rocks while relaxing in the evening. Make some homemade guacamole, grab some thin and crispy tortilla chips, kick back and enjoy a slow paced evening outside.


While I’m all about enjoying Maestro Dobel Diamante Tequila as a sipping tequila, sometimes I’m just in the mood for a margarita. This recipe is perfect for a refreshing, not too sweet, margarita. For a little extra oomph, I sometimes like to mix chili powder with the salt on the rim. 

2 oz. Maestro Dobel Diamante Margarita
0.5 oz agave syrup
0.5 oz fresh lime juice

Shake ingredients together in a cocktail shaker. Pour over ice. Serve in a salt rimmed glass. Enjoy!
