Vanessa, Ashely and Rosario recently opened up to People about their business venture together and their long-lasting friendship. 

‘These are women that I love and admire,’ the former Disney channel star expressed. ‘I knew that we would be such a great team to put our heads together and create something that we’re really proud of and excited about.’ 

Vanessa and Ashley have been friends for years, and became acquainted when they crossed paths in acting classes. 

‘Vanessa and I have known each other since we were literally children,’ Ashley stated to the entertainment publication. 

Rosario, known for her performances in projects such as The Mandalorian, explained that the entertainment industry had brought the three of them together.

‘We’re all similar in certain ways. We’re all very driven, all go-getters, and hard workers,’ Vanessa added.

When discussing the Margalicious Margarita to People, Ashley gushed, ‘We’ve had so much fun making it, from perfecting the taste, creating the looks of the cans, the bottles, the colors, and everything.’

Rosario stated that she feels ‘blessed’ to have had the opportunity to be a part of the project, adding, ‘And my offering was the Margalicious name, which was a homage to my daughter Isabella, whose middle name is Margalita. It’s a fun name for a fun product.’ 

The Bad Boys Life star expressed one of the inspirations behind the margarita cocktail was that, ‘It’s so hard to find a really good, consistent, premium, quality craft cocktail in a can or a bottle, so that was something we were really excited about producing.’ 

‘With Thomas Ashbourne, you know you’re going to get the same quality every single time. It’s something you can count on.’ The tasty margarita drink can be purchased at around $44 for two 375ml bottles, and goes up to around $60 for the canned version. 

Although Rosario wasn’t present at the event on Sunday, Vanessa and Ashley appeared to have a blast in celebration of their milestone collaboration.
