Michelada from T Magazine
Margaritas are the usual go-to cocktail for Cinco de Mayo. But if you’re looking for a different kind of Cinco de Mayo drink, here are a few fun ways to celebrate.
Michelada ~ Perfect for sipping all afternoon, this is a spiced beer cocktail that goes well with Mexican food.
Beer and a Smoke ~ Here’s another beer cocktail, only this one’s made with smoky mezcal for more oomph.
Rhubarb Rita ~ Rhubarb is in season, and it’s a great buddy for tequila. Slightly tart with a hint of sweetness, this is a refreshing Spring twist on a Margarita.
El Guapo ~ You can use tequila or mezcal in this spicy cousin to the classic Margarita. Bring on the heat!
Cilantro Tequila Lime Spritzer ~ If you want something light, this herbed spritzer will do the trick. Add jalapeño slices for a little kick.
