Since I was a child Labor Day has given me a bit of the blues. This holiday has always marked the end of summer, the carelessness of all you can eat ice cream just because it’s so hot, long days at the beach drinking sun warmed soda, and the delight of it being socially acceptable to wear white pants.
I’m not at all sure who came up with the white pants rule. I would like to imagine it was some lady who just couldn’t pull them off for whatever reason And so she made the harsh decree that has since limited all of our white pants wearing to three short blissful months. Well, I’ve had enough of it.
You know what looks good with white bottoms? EVERYTHING. You name it and it looks perfect. So this Labor Day I have decided to take back my right to wear white pants all year long! Who is with me???
Okay, so maybe a revolution of this magnitude takes courage. So let me propose our revolution cocktail: The Vero Margarita, featuring one of our favorite treats, Tanteo Habanero Tequila.
The Vero Margarita
- 2 oz Tanteo® Habanero Tequila
- 1 oz Mango Purée
- 1 oz Fresh Lime Juice
- ¼ oz Agave Nectar
- Combine ingredients in a shaker with ice
- Shake well and strain into a salt-rimmed, ice-filled Rocks Glass
- Stir well and garnish with a mango wheel
Tanteo Tequilas are the easiest way for a girl to drum up some quick courage. Their spicy infused tequila turns up the heat, turning any idea from good to great. So let’s get to shaking things up.
Step 1: Put on white pants.
Step 2: Make a Vero Marg.
Step 3: Look and feel fabulous all year long.
