FOOD: Cinco De Mayo Margarita Recipe
Hola! Como estas? Muy bien, y tu?
Okay, that’s all I remember from my high school Spanish classes. But you know what? It’s Cinco de Mayo and I’ll Spanglish if I want to! Also, I will drink delicious frozen drinks, and here’s hoping our recipe will get you in the mood too!
But first let me drop some knowledge on ya, as many of you likely think this holiday marks Mexico’s Independence Day. However, you’d be wrong because it’s actually a celebration of Mexico’s victory against the French army at the Battle of Puebla in 1862. Viva Mexico!
We won’t judge you if you drink to both things, in fact we’d encourage it! Especially with this fresh and delicious recipe for a Banana Pina Guava Margarita below!
Banana Pina Guava Margarita (c/o Kathy Patalsky of Babble)
1/2 cup ice
1 cup frozen pineapple
1 cup guava juice + 2 tsp agave syrup OR 1 cup lime all-natural margarita mix
1 lime, squeezed
3 shots tequila
salt rimmed glasses + lime garnish
Directions: Blend. Pour. Salt glass rims (optional) serve with a lime-slice garnish.
Frozen Drink Tip! Instead of plain water ice cubes, try freezing juice into cubes for extra flavor. Or you can even freeze coconut water ice cubes for a subtle tropical flavor – and plenty of healthy electrolytes.
