Cinco de May Cocktails

Not that you need a holiday in order to enjoy a tasty cocktail but just in case you do, here is a good reason: Cinco de Mayo! I’ve rounded up some of my best recipes here for you to get your par-tay on. Enjoy!

Frozen Avocado Margarita

Slightly sweet, crisp, and bursting with citrus…this drink is tasty and super refreshing. The savoriness of the tarragon just plays so well with the avocado. Triple Sec and a splash of agave nectar make it taste like anything but guacamole, so don’t worry.

Mexican Bulldog Margarita Recipe

One of the best parts about traveling is the exposure to new and exciting things. And it doesn’t always require busting out your passport. This little gem comes from one of my many trips to Texas. Austin, Texas to be specific. I am a SXSW regular, you see, and this little puppy has kicked off many a tequila-filled nights while there. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Roasted Grapefruit & Habanero Margarita

Instead of being tart as one would expect from a grapefruit-based drink, this margarita is slightly smokey, crisp, and just a little spicy. It’s perfect for winter or now, mostly now. Curl up next to the fire and enjoy!

Cucumber & Green Tea Mojito

Yah, it’s more Spanish than Mexican but I still think it counts and if you were sipping on one of these babies right now, you wouldn’t disagree!
