Happy Cinco de Mayo!!! Today celebrates Mexican victory in the Battle of Puebla and there is no bigger holiday for tequila than today. We teamed up with Sauza Tequila, to bring you inspiration for your Cinco de Mayo (or Cinco de Drinko as some like to call it). If you’re hosting friends for today’s holiday, there’s no easier way to whip up margaritas than in a big ol’ pitcher to make mixing cocktails as easy as possible. Plus, adding in some fun Mexican decor to make your fiesta more festive is definitely a plus.
Whether you like your margarita the good old fashioned way or whether you like to spice things up with some added chili heat, Sauza brings you three delicious variations on the margarita for you to try this holiday. We even switched up their Perfect Pear Margarita by incorporating prickly pear syrup instead of pear syrup, which gave it a different flavor and vibrant color. Mix up any or all of these cocktails and let us know how it goes! And make sure to check out the hashtag #MyKindOfCinco on Instagram to see how we celebrated Cinco de Mayo!
