Cinco de Mayo and the Love of Margs!
Why isn’t everyday Cinco de Mayo? Who needs a reason to enjoy a thirst-quenching margarita? Not me!
We celebrate Cinco de Mayo because….why wouldn’t we? This cocktail can be enjoyed at any time of the year but tastes even better on the 5th of May! May just so happens to be when everyone is ready to feel that summer vibe! With the many variations around, and provided below, everyone and anyone can indulge.
If you are like me, the only place to get a good marg is at a restaurant. Why is it so hard to make it at home by yourself? Let’s simplify this. We can do it! Is it the flakey salt? The fresh lime juice? Do we really need all of that or can we wing it? A simple standard margarita consists of fresh lime juice, tequila, Cointreau, and coarse salt (if that’s your preference). If you are like me and think: who has all those items at the same time?!?!?! Not me again. Instead, purchase those crafty already made mixers and just add your own tequila. If you are feeling the frozen vibe, just add ice in the blender. Now… to make your life even easier, crack open the “ready to drink” margarita cans! They really are awesome to take on the go. Examples: throw in a cooler for a beach day, driveway drinks with the neighbors, or just a long day to ease the stress. Who needs an actual reason? Perfect example of why Cinco de Mayo is one of the best holidays of the year! Cheers!
