Happy Cinco de Mayo! (To get you excited for tomorrow of course!) We wanted to have some fun by pulling together a fun spin on the classic margarita. It’s refreshing and sweet with a touch of heat. Hello, fresh-cut jalapeños! Perfect for a sunny day in early May while enjoying some time outside with your friends and family! This refreshing margarita cocktail on the rocks is perfect with or without a splash of tequila too! We hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
And if you need a little something extra, try making our crispy cauliflower tostadas or chicken tacos to make things even more festive! If you’re throwing a last-minute Cinco de Mayo Party these easy and quick recipes will make you look like you pulled off your party like a pro!
