I know, I know…. Cinco de Mayo is just another day that American’s choose to drink “mas tequila”. Hey, any excuse for margs and tacos- I’ll take it! If you are celebrating today, try this refreshing Grapefruit Margarita. It is full of flavor and pairs perfectly with all that spicy cuisine.
I like to use my favorite tequila from our local distillery, Spotted Bear Spirits. This tequila is so smooth and fresh, I wouldn’t make a marg without it… and apparently, Aspen agrees!
Not only is it delicious, but it’s so pretty and festive! Garnish with some fresh mint, a lime, and salt (optional).
This sweet and sour cocktail is the perfect addition to any summer festivities! Happy Cinco de Drinko, friends! Always remember to drink responsibly! Cheers!
