Just like summer, Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner. Celebrate May 5th and the anniversary of the Mexican Army’s victory over the French with a quintessential Mexican drink- the margarita! The key to this cocktail is simplicity, good ingredients, and balance.

To elevate this classic drink, we recommend using good, high quality tequila. While there is much debate about which style, just follow your own palette and use what you like.  We prefer Reposado Tequila.

For the orange liqueur, Caballero is incredible. Other good options include Cointreau and Grand Marnier- but avoid the triple sec!
