BLEND USEDAll-Sass California Grape Nectar 

Tasting attributes: The riesling and gewurztraminer grapes give this margarita a bright and orangey finish, reminiscent of Gran Marnier

Feeling like your margarita needs a little something extra? We highly recommend all of our sweeteners for imparting a unique flavor into the classic tequila cocktail. Our Bored-O Blanc Sauvignon Blanc sweetener will really round out your classic skinny margarita. If you are looking for a little jammy sweetness, the Rouge Grape Nectar transforms your average margarita into a beautiful blush color as well.

Our most recent concoction included our All-Sass Riesling sweetener. With its floral, orange finish and bright qualities, we had found our winner. A "Cadillac" inspiration from color and flavor profile, this white blend of Grape Nectar works perfectly to replace Gran Marnier. One simple ingredient easily adds aromatic complexity to a common drink.

And don’t forget the decline of agave nectar. Once a common margarita component; now a declining crop. With prices rising and availability diminishing, bars and consumers alike will be in need of a replacement. Support the sustainable movement of Grape Nectar and nix agave in your bar.

On top of the environmental factors, Grape Nectar is your low-carb, low sugar sweetener option. Make your skinny margarita even “skinnier” with our California Grape Nectar. Half of the sugar of agave nectar and infinitely more flavor. Keep the California theme alive with some fresh pressed California limes. Truly one of our favorites on the Sweeter Side!
