Drink like a King.

In my opinion (and everybody else’s), King George reigns supreme when it comes to country music, but he ain’t no slouch in the tequila department either.

In fact, I’ll be the first in line to go ahead and call him the tequila king as well because his Código 1530 Tequila is the best I’ve ever tasted. And no, that’s not a paid endorsement. It’s not an advertisement, it’s the truth. If you haven’t tried it yet, do it now, thank me later.

Anyways, for National Margarita Day, ol’ King George shared his go-to marg recipe, affectionately titled the Ranch Margarita. Made with his Código 1530 Blanco tequila, it also adds a splash of triple sec, lime juice and agave nectar.

Here’s what to do:

2 Oz of Código 1530 Blanco Tequila
.5 Oz of Triple Sec
1 Oz of Lime Juice
.5 Oz of Agave Nectar

Mix it up, drink your ass off.

A while back, George gave us an update on how he was surviving quarantine, and like many of us, he was drinking.

“When I’m under quarantine, which I am quite a bit, these times are a little more serious than most but I can always count on Codigo 1530 to get me through it.”

Me and the King are doing quarantine the same damn way, and that’s good enough for me.

Stay thirsty my friends…
