Shaken or Stirred?
The Margarita is the most popular cocktail in the U.S. It was created by an American on vacation in Mexico, which is home to the tequila that is essential to the drink. And the original was made with Cointreau, not Triple Sec, a cheaper substitute.

What I received as a sample was 3 - 1 and 1/2 by 6 pieces. I couldn't tell if it would work or not, so I ordered 1 square foot of the 2 inch square tile. The tile was absolutely stunning, but too dark for my bathroom and it didn't show off the colors. Hope this helps. Dawnwhat is thickness of this tile? I assume tlles are 2" squares. You folks should put tile thicknesses on the description (or am I missing it?) ThanksBEST ANSWER: I have bought these tiles... they are a quarter inch thick and yes, 2 inch squares... the colors are much more vivid and darker than the photo shows... they are stunning!!!What color of non-sanded grout looks nice with this tile? We just ordered Mardi Gras for our kitchen backsplash, and it suggested Delorean Gray. But I wondered about lighter or darker, or grout that is bluer? Thank you so much!BEST ANSWER: We are planning on using these for our backsplash as well. I ordered extra to mount to a board and play with different grout colors. We have white cabinets and I want to try white grout to see if they will pop as individual little jewels of color which is what I am going for. They are gorgeous tiles. I can post a picture after we do our grout trial.
Tile must be installed over a suitable substrate to insure a proper installation. Glass tile should be installed over a clean, sound, and flat surface, free of contaminates including curing compounds. Substrate should be free of cracks. If used in a wet area you must waterproof. See manufacturer’s recommendation on a membrane for crack and water protection that is compatible with the setting material you are using. Glass is reflective therefore any inconsistencies in the substrate will result in a poor installation. For pools and fountains we recommend installing a mortar bed according to TCA P601-98. EXPANSION AND CONTROL JOINTS PER TCA EJ171-05 Expansion joints should be installed at all “changes in plane” in the tile work and where tile abuts restraining surfaces, therefore silicone caulking sealant must be installed in all corner joints in place of grout.INSTALLATION
- To avoid affecting the color of glass tile, White modified thin-set such as Bostik Glass Mate is highly is recommended for all installations.
- Apply thin-set using a trowel as recommended by the manufacturer.
- Apply as much adhesive as can be covered within 10-15 minutes.
- Grout joint should be a minimum of 1/16” and not butt set.
- The trowel size you can use is a 9" Trowel - 1/16" square notch.
- Grout joints should be packed full and free of voids and pits.
- Clean excess grout as the work progresses before it has hardens completely.
- Acids should never be used for cleaning grout haze.
- Use a damp sponge for the final cleaning and to smooth out the grout joints.
- It is recommended to use non-sanded grout.
The recommended cutting method is to use a wet saw with a diamond blade that is specifically for cutting glass. Edges can be sanded smooth after cutting.
