Raise A Glass

Tequila Sunrise

Whether it’s an early morning kick-off or late into the afternoon, Ginger Margaritas are the perfect signature game day cocktail to offer guests when tailgating. Fresh lime juice carries bright flavor notes while a Ginger Simple Syrup sweetens the glass. If you have never prepared a simple syrup, it’s effortless & I have provided the instructions for you. Use it beyond game day by adding to iced tea or brush it over vanilla cake layers to keep them tender before icing. You may want to make a double batch of this irresistible beverage as the margaritas are bound to go quickly.
