The countdown to Cinco De Mayo is on which means it’s time to start planning those cocktails! Since it falls on a Sunday this year we can all get things started a little earlier than usual so we’ve listed libations to take you from morning ’till night. (Just remember, no driving.)
Brunch Starter –
Bloody Mary Sauza Sunrise (I always like to have just one) ;)
Brunch Main –

Afternoon Libation –

Finish the Night – Something sweet… Crave Chili’rita
2 parts Sauza Blue Reposado Tequila
2 parts Orange Juice
2 dashes grenadine
Instructions: 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!
