To celebrate National Margarita Day, we’re harnessing the power of twos as Grammy-winning duo and JAJA co-owners The Chainsmokers share their favorite riffs on the classic tequila cocktail.

With this palindrome day in history, The Chainsmokers’ Drew Taggart & Alex Pall have each infused their own personality into a refreshing, easy-to-make margarita. Drew’s go-to is a JAJA Watermelon Lime Mashup Margarita utilizing JAJA Blanco’s ($35) black pepper and citrus notes paired with limeade, spiked seltzer and watermelon. On the other hand, Alex selected JAJA Anejo ($45) to dovetail with hibiscus tea, sparkling water, and blood orange for the JAJA Hibiscus High.

Spirits writers, marketers and designers are among the most influential forces in the spirits industry. Their opinions, ideas and creative talents inform and influence consumer perceptions and buying decisions.
