5 Tequila Cocktails for Cinco De Mayo

5 Tequila Cocktails for Cinco De Mayo

May 03, 2016

Happy [almost] Cinco De Mayo! We're flying out to Tallahassee Thursday night for a dear friend's wedding this upcoming weekend (yes, another one. It's wedding season, fool!) so we'll be celebrating with Southwest Airlines Margaritas ;)

But since you're likely not jumping on a red-eye to Florida this Cinco de Mayo, you should whip up some of these awesome tequila-starring cocktails! They're all listed below with the ingredients/brands that we chose to use, but honestly, you could swap anything out for your favorite brand or flavor. And I didn't include any margaritas because there are about a zillion and one margarita recipes out there and I wanted to present a little more variety.

So display your taco bar, pump some sweet Mariachi tunes, and start making your guests some lovely {and quite boozy} cocktails!
