6 Irresistible Cocktails for Cinco de Mayo
The key to celebrating this holiday is enjoying it with friends and family and what better way than with a delicious drink in hand. And if you're partial to the tropical, refreshing flavors of tequila and rum, you're in luck. Don't be tempted by overly sweet bottled or powdered mixers: the key to making drinks at home is to use fresh ingredients (think fruit juice, herbs, spices, and citrus) instead.
Here, we've rounded up six top-notch Cinco de Mayo cocktails—from a classic Frozen Watermelon Margarita and Spicy Paloma made with mezcal to a tea-based boozy Hibiscus Punch and more—that you can shake, stir, or blend at home to toast the occasion. Once you've nailed your drink, we recommend making a large portion of this delicious homemade guacamole and cheesy chicken nachos to pair with.
