This Is, Without a Doubt, the Best Margarita Recipe For Cinco de Mayo

Ultra Hydrating Margarita

Get ready for a festive Cinco de Mayo because this ultrahydrating margarita recipe is seriously the best for warm weather celebrations. Not only is it easy to make, but it's also super tasty and way better than anything you'll find in stores. The key is to naturally sweeten it with a fresh squeeze of orange and boost your electrolytes with a splash of coconut water.

Most margaritas contain added sugar, primarily agave syrup. But agave, once deemed the holy grail of sugars, is not looking so sweet for your body after all. It's super high in fructose (yes, as in high-fructose corn syrup). Even worse, some recipes call for prepackaged mixers and neon green syrups. All the dyes, additives, and sugar leave your body dehydrated and can result in a gnarly hangover the next day.

This recipe kicks that junk out the window, mixing up a fresh, delicious margarita that won't leave you spending the next day under the covers. (All in moderation, of course.)
