Today’s 3-ingredient Elderflower Margarita recipe is brought to you just in time for summer sipping season. Cheers!

This 3-ingredient Elderflower Margarita makes perfect batch cocktails for your summer parties on the deck. We were so surprised (and thrilled) at how well elderflower liqueur and tequila go together. This easy cocktail is a must try!We could hardly let Cinco de Mayo come and go without bringing you a chance to sample a new margarita, could we?

You know we take our tequila cocktails seriously around here, and this margarita is no exception. So grab a pitcher, a few glasses and some comfy deck chairs because this 3-ingredient Elderflower Margarita will definitely make you want to stay awhile!

Now I’ll admit, as much as I love elderflower liqueur, I’ve never had it in a margarita. My first thought was that it would be too sweet, but boy was I wrong. The floral notes of the elderflower liqueur are a natural complement to the herbal, woodsy flavors of the reposado tequila. Add a shot of freshness with some tangy lime juice, and you have yourself a first-class cocktail. Plus you can just as easily make a big pitcher of these Elderflower Margaritas for an impromptu happy hour as you can make one for yourself after a long day.

Simple? Yes. Dangerously so? Definitely.

Make ahead tip: Stock up on limes when they are on sale at the store and juice a whole bunch at once. Freeze them in ice cube trays and defrost as needed.

    Now I know what reposado tequila is. I’ll definitely rest with one, or two, of these on the 5th.
