How do you make your next delish Margarita also a sustainable sip that you can feel good about? Make The Peaceful Warrior cocktail with the organic and additive-free tequila from One With Life (OWL). This skinny Elderflower Margarita version is both sweet and spicy; and a favorite of Maureen Shea Carranza, aka “The Real Million Dollar Baby.”
The two time World Champion is one of the four Championship boxers who have joined forces with One With Life Organic Tequila founder, Lisa Elovich, to amplify her message of courage, fortitude, compassion and exuberance; something all of them exemplify in spades.
“The message of living One With Life is deeply personal to me,” says Maureen Shea Carranza. “Nothing is handed to female fighters, you have to earn it. Whether surviving domestic abuse or becoming a two-time world champion, I needed to learn to stay present in the moment and continuously strive to be One With Life every day.”
Organic tequila and elderflower are perfect partners in this floral and lightly sweetened cocktail that surprises with a punch of heat on the rim. Spicy, salty and sweet are balanced with the acidity of fresh lime juice and the softness of the elderflower liqueur. Then the bitters give it just that right amount of pucker.
Choosing the right spirit is going to make all the difference here, too. Too harsh of a finish will overpower the elderflower. The additive-free vanilla notes in One With Life Organic Tequila, as well as the no-burn finish, will complement without overpowering. You’ll taste the difference that a tequila made in the traditional style and without additives brings to all your cocktails.

One With Life Organic Tequila Details
Founded by former Manhattan Asst DA turned Yogi and life coach Lisa Elovich, One with Life Organic Tequila is Elovich’s vehicle to share her message of being present and being One With Life, to celebrate life, but in a healthier way.
One with Life Organic Tequila (OWL) is hand-crafted from sustainably grown Blue Agave in Jalisco, Mexico with absolutely no additives, sweeteners or glycerin. Each agave plant is harvested for OWL at the height of ripeness and then roasted in a clay oven adhering to traditional tequila production practices. The roasted and shredded blue agave is naturally fermented and double distilled in stainless steel tanks resulting in a clean and flavorful tasting ultra-premium tequila. As a result of the small batch distillation process, the flavor profile strongly reflects that of the agave plant itself, qualities that led Wine Enthusiast to give OWL a 94 rating, naming it one of the “Best of the Year.”
