Celebrate America’s number one cocktail: the margarita — with Astral Tequila and first-ever MargaritaCon

Break out the limes because it’s time to celebrate America’s number one cocktail: the margarita made with Astral Tequila.

In honor of Earth Month, Astral Tequila is thrilled to announce the first-ever MargaritaCon, a month-long celebration of the margarita for a cause.

Starting today through May 5th, bars nationwide will feature a special Astral margarita on their menus, with each cocktail contributing towards building homes for those in need.

Astral Tequila upcycles spent agave from tequila distillation into bricks to build homes, so every Astral margarita made goes towards a good cause.

The brand is proud to partner with Hábitat para la Humanidad México to build these homes through their ongoing sustainability program, the Adobe Brick Project in Jalisco, Mexico.

And for the first time this year, Astral Tequila will also be extending its support to the United States by donating a total of $50,000 to Habitat for Humanity affiliates across the country, furthering the impact of every Astral margarita enjoyed during MargaritaCon.

“Astral is quickly becoming the go-to tequila for crafting delicious margaritas,”

Christina Choi

SVP of Tequila at Diageo NA.

“Rooted in tradition, our time-intensive process yields a smooth tequila with bursts of citrus, making it a brighter tasting margarita. So, who better than Astral to kick off the first-ever MargaritaCon?”

Join the celebration while giving back to a worthy cause at any of the 170+ participating bars across the country.

Participants can enjoy the delicious and bright taste of Astral Tequila with each location’s unique take on the margarita, along with giveaways and surprises all month long.

Margaritas featuring Astral Tequila support the cause!

Astral Tequila is a super-premium tequila


Astral is a super-premium tequila crafted using 100% Blue Weber agave nourished by the sun and stars in Jalisco, Mexico.

Using a tahona and bagazo during fermentation, Astral’s unique recipe uses traditional, time-intensive processes to create a radiant tequila that brightens every cocktail. Each bottle of Astral Tequila produced helps continue the circular flow of good energy – leftover agave fibers are upcycled into adobe bricks to be used to construct buildings in local communities in Mexico to create more places to gather with loved ones and feel connected.

Astral launched in April 2022 with its first expression, Blanco, followed by Reposado and Añejo in April 2023.
