Our Top 10 Cinco de Mayo Cocktails

Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with delicious Mexican-style cocktails! When you’ve already made your tacos, enchiladas, and guacamole, it’s time to start thinking about drinking. These recipes will make both you and your guests say “ay caramba!”

Tequila with Sangrita: Sit down to any serious meal in Mexico and you'll be offered twin glasses of sipping tequila and sangrita. The latter is a spicy "chaser" based on tomato and orange or lime juice, often with a little chili powder or pickled pepper juice for punch. The presentation might be rounded out with a few radishes, scallions or jicama slices to munch on.

Mango Margaritas: This unique Wolfgang Puck recipe is the perfect beverage for your Cinco de Mayo fiesta

Mock Tequila Sunrise: With the alcohol left out, it's perfect for any kiddie-cocktail hour.

Congarita: This cocktail is like a margarita but much more fruity.

Lavender Margaritas: Both the smell and taste of these margaritas is surprisingly delicious.

Sangria: This delicious drink originated in Spain, but it is popular in the Spanish-speaking world, nonetheless.  Red wine, brandy, soda, and fresh fruit combine together to make a ridiculously refreshing beverage for your next party. 

Mexican Slush: This alcoholic drink iseasy to sip while sitting in you backyard, pretending you're on a beach in Mexico!

Frozen Margaritas: These should be made a day in advance and can be kept in the freezer through the summer (if they last that long!)

Tequila Ta-Tas: This summer treat is fun for the whole gang. Its beautiful aroma will be the talk of the party.

Non-Alcoholic Margarita Punch: A perfect non-alcoholic lemon-lime carbonated beverage to serve to your guests at any holiday party or intimate gathering.
