Celebrate National Margarita Day with this Chardonnay Margarita

In honor of National Margarita Day this Wednesday, February 22, we’re combining our vibrant Carneros Chardonnay with blanco tequila to make an inventive and deliciously refreshing wine cocktail, just in time for spring. This wine and margarita blend is everything you want out of a margarita…but more!

The recipe may be straight-forward but the ingredients you select make all the difference. We recommend using top-shelf liqueur, opting for Cointreau over Triple Sec, and choosing only the very best wine to pair with it. This recipe yields 12 servings.
