Struggling to keep our eyes this morning to watch the royal nuptials got us thinking that a bright and refreshing cocktail was exactly what the occasion (and this 4:00 a.m. hour) needed.

And, in homage to the strange mixed up feelings of excitement and stress all brides feel while walking down the aisle, we whipped up something Princess inspired that was both delicious and nerve steadying.

Though our golden enveloped invitation got lost in the mail and therefore we can’t report as fact that Kate Middleton (now the Duchess of Cambridge, as if a Princess title isn’t enough) was actually fighting off butterflies in her stomach, we’d like to imagine this was a drink she’s always whipped up for her best girlfriends from Buckleberry and that today she’d enjoy this cocktail to remain calm, deal with her new in-laws, and get ready for her next big event…yep, Cinco De Mayo.

You are cordially invited to enjoy the Royal Margarita. Today, May 5th, and on all 363 other days of the year. The Royal Margarita is an elevated classic that with offers up a touch of herbal intrigue that perks up a meal whether it’s pomme frites at the palace or tacos on the beach.

1 ½ oz. silver tequila
1 oz. fresh lime
½ oz. Royal Combier
½ oz agave nectar

Shake with ice and serve.
