Farm-to-Table is Spilling Over from the Kitchen to the Bar. 

The Azuñia Organica, our honest expression of the organic skinny margarita, embodies this shift in the food and beverage industry. The Organica is honestly authentic, and like the agave it’s made from, is 100% organic.

What does this mean? The Organica enhances any menu — from a hip health-conscious vegan spot, to an all-sustainable dinner dive, to a traditional Tex-Mex locale.

This Azuñia Organica is better than any other skinny margarita. Why?

  • Made with Azuñia 100% pure Blue Weber agave tequila
  • Azuñia Blanco and Reposado (perfect for margs!) are USDA certified organic
  • Simple to make – 4 easy-to-stock, fresh ingredients
  • Versatile – keep cocktail recipe as is or add signature garnish
  • Top seller across all restaurant and bar menu placements

Four simple ingredients — organic tequila, organic agave syrup, fresh lime, and water — create a delicious, refreshing margarita that’s skinny and organic, too.

Azuñia’s Honest Expression of the Skinny Margarita

Bartenders are talking about Azuñia Tequila. Check out what General Manager Matt Cahur of Guanabanas Restaurant and Bar in Jupiter, Florida says about its top-selling “skinny” Margarita.

“If you’re a tequila lover, the Azuñia Organica kicks ass. Combine organic agave syrup, fresh lime juice, ice, water and a bunch of Azuñia! When guests ask about this cocktail, we tell them it’s the healthier alternative to a great tequila buzz. Less sugar and more zest. It’s our number one seller … what else do you need to say?” (as quoted in Chilled Magazine, August/September 2017)

As we eat, so should we drink. As one Yelper said after drinking an Azuñia Organica with Azuñia Blanco organic tequila, “I’m feeling healthier already.”

How to Make The Azuñia Organica, Organic Skinny Margarita

Start with these simple organic ingredients:

1 1/2 oz Azuñia Blanco Organic Tequila
3/4 oz Azuñia Organic Agave Syrup
1 oz Fresh Organic Lime Juice
Splash of water
Sea Salt for Rim (optional)
Organic Lime Wheel for Garnish

Method:

  1. Add the ingredients to a shaker filled with ice and shake.
  2. Rub the wedge of an organic lime along the rim of chilled margarita or rocks glass. Coat the rim with salt.
  3. Add fresh ice to the glass. Strain margarita into glass. Garnish with a lime wheel.

Honestly Good Tequila

A great tequila makes a great margarita, so choose wisely. The tequila should enhance the nuances of the cocktail, as the mixers should marry well with the spirit. When selecting a tequila for an organic margarita, try Azuñia Blanco. The clean floral nose with hints of agave and lemon shine bright in this refreshing well-balanced housemade margarita.

Try it with Reposado for a deeper margarita flavor without sacrificing the organic or the skinny.
