Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with a margarita

Apple Lime Margarita 

"The syrup is like an apple bomb in liquid form and adds sweetness, floral apple flavor, and a little tang all at once, making the need for other ingredients fairly unnecessary."

See the recipe at Hola Jalapeño!

Spicy Tamarind Margarita

"This spicy tamarind margarita is sweet and sour....It packs a punch but it goes down smooth."

See the recipe at Fix Feast Flair

The Perfect Margarita

"A great margarita has a fresh taste and nice balance of sweetness and tart lime flavor. Our recipe has just the right proportions of tequila, triple sec, freshly squeezed lime juice and homemade simple syrup to achieve that perfect flavor."

Spicy Mango Margarita

"I used mango nectar instead of fresh mango to make a drink that is big on mango flavor but small on effort, which comes in handy when you’ve had more than one margarita."

Strawberry Rosé Margarita

"Cinco de Mayo calls for Margaritas and this year I am serving up Strawberry flavored ones that include my favorite ingredient, yes you guessed it, Rosé!"

See the recipe at Fashionable Hostess!

Spicy Rose Water Margarita

"The added heat is totally optional, but I like the way the jalapeño packs a punch up front while the rose water is quite subtle in the background; a very yin-yang mix."

Crushed Strawberry Margarita

"This drink tastes more like real strawberries and less like bubble gum. It allows you to drink a fruit-flavored cocktail and maintain your dignity."

See the recipe at Hola Jalapeño!

Honey Grapefruit Margarita

"The tart pink grapefruit makes a beautiful cocktail and is ultra-refreshing, add a generous squeeze of lime juice and a glug of Cointreau for some complexity and body, top it all off with a solid tequila and that is a drink worth drinking."

See the recipe at Hola Jalapeño!

Peach Basil Margarita

"That sultry, late summer peach flavor plays well against the other drink components, helping to smooth out and mellow the tequila’s bite just enough to keep you coming back for one more sip."

Tropical tofu tacos with mango salsa

"Tropical Tacos! If you put mango on something, does it make it tropical? It does in my book. Sorta like when I put kiwi on anything and call it  New Zealand inspired. It’s not, but it is."  - Delish Knowledge

Beer-battered fish tacos with radish and pico de gallo

"Not only do they offer all the crunch and chew and fluffiness that you want in a stellar fried fish taco but they also offer a spring twist on the classic summertime salsa by using radishes in place of tomatoes." - Hola Jalapeno

Poblano chicken tacos with pipicha 

"These tacos really hit the spot. I roasted some Poblano Chiles under the broiler and mixed them with some chicken I grilled up in a skillet. I added some of the pipicha to the pan and then de-glazed it with tequila." - The Wanderlust Kitchen

Veggie tacos with blueberry salsa

"Yes, that is blueberry salsa. AND IT WAS SO GOOD! We actually took a few days to think this one over, because we wanted to do it right. It is so, so right! A little roasted jalapeno, a little lime juice – yes, these are something you should definitely try." - PDX Food Love
