Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone. Today may be the day to partake in everything Mexican related, but it seems for me, I’ve been celebrating all weekend long. What can I say. I love me some Mexican cuisine and beverages. That’s why I’ll never have an eight-pack 😉
I reached out to our friends over at Sauza Tequila for a few drink recipes to share with you today. Our previous post about their cocktails for Margarita Day proved so popular, I thought I’d share some more. Enjoy responsibly. Don’t drink too much. Otherwise you might find it a bit difficult to beat the crap out of that pinata.
2 parts Sauza Blue Reposado Tequila
2 parts Orange Juice
2 dashes grenadine
In a glass filled with ice stir together orange juice and tequila. Pour the two dashes of grenadine down the side so that it settles to the bottom of the glass. Salud!

2 parts DeKuyper® Pomegranate Liqueur
2 parts JDK & Sons™ O3 Premium Orange Liqueur
4 parts Fresh Lemon Juice

Rim your glasses; run a lemon wedge around the rim of your glass and dip in sugar. In a shaker filled with ice, combine pomegranate juice, coconut water, Tequila, liqueurs and lemon juice. Shake and pour into prepared glasses. Garnish with a lemon wedge. For an extra special touch, add fresh pomegranate seeds to the cocktail! Salud! (Serves 8)
