Cinco de Mayo Cocktails to Shake Up the Celebration  

4 min read

Entertaining for Cinco de Mayo? Shock your visitors with surprising twists on the same old tequila cocktails. Go for the gold with a Grand Margarita that includes Grand Marnier Cordon Rouge, an distinctive mix of fantastic cognac and bitter orange liqueur. Infuse your personal tequila with Patron Silver and recent jalapeño to boost a particular blood orange or beet juice margarita. 

Experiment with smoky mezcal, herbaceous Amaro Montenegro, or Sorel, a singular hibiscus liqueur with an unique mix of clove, cassia, ginger and nutmeg. Or overlook margaritas altogether by mixing up Mexico’s #1 favourite: the refreshing Paloma and her “skinny” sister recipe. The 1800 Agua Fresca is so refreshing, it’s nearly like a fruit salad in a glass. And for a candy style of historical past, rediscover the enduring La Batanga that includes Mexican Coca Cola and stirred with a knife to honor the drink’s creator, Don Javier of the La Capilla bar in Tequila, Mexico.
