Summer is almost here and as much as I dislike the summer heat, I always look forward to summer entertaining out on the patio near the pool! As much as I enjoy mixing up a good party drink, when you also have to worry about preparing a big spread of food, it’s easy to run out of time and energy to worry about cocktails. Enter Uptown Cocktails as the perfect ready-to-drink cocktail! Just chill, pour over ice, and enjoy!

I was excited to try out some of the Uptown Cocktails varieties. I immediately went for the Uptown Cocktails Lime Margarita and Uptown Cocktails Strawberry Margarita because margaritas make for the best poolside drink to sip on! I really enjoyed both varieties! Both flavors have the perfect amount of sweetness, not at all too sweet, which is my preference for cocktails. They were both crisp and refreshing. I served them over ice, but blending with ice to make a frozen margarita would also be delish and would be great to beat the summer heat!

The best part about Uptown Cocktails is that they are made without any corn syrup or artificial flavors and are also kosher! At 13.9% alcohol by volume, they are not too strong which I appreciate, especially for serving to guests. Each bottle contains 8 servings – perfect for serving a crowd!

To pair with the Uptown Cocktails margaritas, I made a build-your-own taco spread. I love serving Mexican food for parties because it’s simple to make and can easily be made to be very customizable for guests with a taco or burrito bowl bar.

Here are some of my go-to recipes to help create the perfect taco bar to pair with your Uptown Cocktails margaritas!



You can’t go wrong with a taco bar and Uptown Cocktails has the best ready-to-drink margaritas and their other flavor varieties are perfect to serve your guests that are refreshing and delish! To find Uptown Cocktails near you, check out the store locator here!
