Guess what?! It’s
gonna be May!
And since May is upon us, that means it’s time for some all-American celebrating Mexican style: Cinco de Mayo.
I realize that Cinco de Mayo is largely a commercialized excuse to stuff your faces with Mexican food (gimme allllll the guac!) and tequila, and while I’m past the bucket o’ margaritas stage of my youth (good times, good times), I still love to feast on nachos and sip my way through the tantalizing and tangy combination of tequila, triple sec, and lime juice.
Tequila and I have a poor history, but I can handle it in moderation—aka once or twice a year.
Since I haven’t been experimenting in the kitchen much, I don’t have any recipes of my own, but I did compile a round-up of the best-looking libations around the interwebs. Ole!
