5 Easy Cocktails To Make At Home

Here are 5 cocktails to make at home this weekend. You can make a mocktail version of any of these as well.  All the cocktails are all from past real events from Valley & Company Events. An inclusive event planning and design house, working with clients from all heritages, preferences, and backgrounds around the globe in Seattle. Cheers!

Classic Margarita via Ina Garten


1 lime, halved
Kosher salt
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (5 limes)
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice (1 lemon)
1 cup Triple Sec
1 cup white tequila
2 cups ice, plus extra for serving

If you like margaritas served in a glass with salt, rub the outside rims of 6 glasses with a cut lime and dip each glass lightly into a plate of kosher salt.

Combine the lime juice, lemon juice, Triple Sec, tequila, and ice in a blender and puree. Place extra ice in a cocktail shaker. Fill with margarita mix, shake well, and strain into glasses.
