5 Mexican Cocktails for Cinco de Mayo

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.

Something for every taste here:


1 oz (or more lol) tequila
1/4 oz triple sec
2 oz fresh lime juice
2 oz fresh orange juice ( I used Ojai Pixie juice, soo good!)
Lime slice for garnish
Salt, for rim 

Mexican Bulldog

Margarita recipe (above)
Flip a small beer (Coronita) upside down into the glass
Lime slice for garnish
Salt, for rim

Spiked Horchata

1 oz tequila
1/2 oz cinnamon schnapps
6 oz horchata (or more, to taste)
Pinch of ground cinnamon
Cinnamon stick for garnish

Jamaica Champagne Cocktail

Fill glass about 1/2-1/4 of way up with Jamaica (recipe below)
Top off glass with champagne
Garnish w/ edible flower (the flower I used is perfect because it doesn't get in the way while you're drinking and you can smell it with each sip)
