Celebrate Cinco De Mayo With Sauza Tequila

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.

Sauza Sunrise

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!
