Cinco de Mayo Cocktails to Shake Up the Celebration  

Entertaining for Cinco de Mayo? Shock your company with sudden twists on the same old tequila cocktails. Go for the gold with a Grand Margarita that includes Grand Marnier Cordon Rouge, an distinctive mix of wonderful cognac and bitter orange liqueur. Infuse your personal tequila with Patron Silver and recent jalapeño to boost a particular blood orange or beet juice margarita. 

Experiment with smoky mezcal, herbaceous Amaro Montenegro, or Sorel, a singular hibiscus liqueur with an unique mix of clove, cassia, ginger and nutmeg. Or neglect margaritas altogether by mixing up Mexico’s #1 favourite: the refreshing Paloma and her “skinny” sister recipe. And for a candy style of historical past, rediscover the enduring La Batanga that includes Mexican Coca Cola and stirred with a knife to honor the drink’s creator, Don Javier of the La Capilla bar in Tequila, Mexico.
