A big pitcher of delicious, ice-cold margaritas will turn any get-together into a party. Mexican fare is always a crowd-pleaser—just whip up a few of these recipes and you’ll be fiesta-ready in no time.
Make the bar interactive by letting guests create their own signature cocktails. Set out a pitcher of classic margaritas, chilled mason jars, and a bucket of ice. Label plates of different flavored salts and let guests experiment with salts on the rims of their glasses. Simply stir together about 1 teaspoon of flavoring (see side bar) with 1/4 cup of kosher or sea salt. You can even make party favors by filling small plastic bags with the salts and closing them with kitchen twine.
