Pinterest Picks – Cinco de Mayo Ready Margarita Recipes

I’ve been sitting on this post, patiently waiting for the glorious holiday called Cinco de Mayo when everyone drops everything to stuff their faces with delicious tacos and down refreshing margaritas. Well, that’s how it plays out in my head anyway. But here I am! Just in time for Cinco de Mayo with a roundup of some amazing margarita recipes. Usually I like my margarita simple. Good tequila, fresh lime juice, triple sec… Honestly if you have good tequila and fresh limes you’re well on your way to a tasty margarita. Add in your favorite liqueur, Cointreau, Patrón Citrónage, Grand Marnier and that’s your basic but delicious margarita.

But say you want something MORE. More flavor! Or just a different flavor! Well then you’ve come to the right place because I bopped around the internet hunting for a variety of yummy margarita recipes. We’ve got one with sparkling wine and one with beer. One with grilled pineapple and one with guava. There’s even a margarita recipe that uses mezcal for a smoky flavor. Oh and a few with blood orange because everyone loves the color of a blood orange cocktail. Consider this a starting point for your margarita recipe adventure. It’s time to get creative this Cinco de Mayo.
