Cinco Margaritas For Cinco De Mayo

¡Buenas!

Day two of the “Blog Every Day in May” challenge requires that I link up my top 5 posts. Since I’ve been blogging for less than a month and have maybe 5 posts total, I decided to take creative license on this topic and put together a list of Cinco Margaritas for Cinco de Mayo instead, featuring the top 5 unique margarita recipes on the web. ¡Qué rico!

So grab your limes and salt those rims, cause these margaritas are fiesta-ready:

1. Mojita-rita

Mojita-rita

  • Ice
  • 2 ounces añejo tequila
  • 1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice (from  about 1 medium lime)
  • 1/2 ounce John D. Taylor’s Velvet Falernum
  • 3 fresh mint sprigs
  • 1 1/2 ounces sparkling water, chilled

Mojito? Good. Margarita? Gooooood. Mix them together? Mojita-rita! Hispanic overload in a drink if I ever saw one. ¡Salud!

2. Lime Sherbet Margaritas

I feel like the kid in me and the margarita-loving collegiate in me just came together in glorious tequila-sherbet harmony.

      Doesn’t it though?? I love coconut and this was right up my alley! Happy early birthday to your hubby, he picked a great day to be born! ;)

    Dang some of those look really good.

    Why limit it to Cinco De Mayo though? Definitely looks like a good relaxing drink on a Friday or Saturday night, especially during those hot summer nights!

      Haha agreed! I fully support the use of any of the above recipes for holidays, weekends, or just to get through that long Tuesday night! Glad you enjoyed the post :)
