Mexican cocktails are the best. 

Also, Cinco de Mayo is around the corner!

It’s basically an excuse for non-Mexican yet culturally-sensitive people to drink and eat delicious Mexican food.

Today, I will be honoring the Drinko de Mayo aspect of this holiday by making 5 Mexican cocktails.

Also, known as Cinco de Drinko.
