Cinco de Mayo Is This Weekend: Tequila Cocktails Recipes
It's that time of year again. Cinco de Mayo: the time in which is it expected to consume massive amounts of tequila. We know, you're probably dusting off the old Jimmy Buffet margarita machine, but just so you know, you do have other options.
Camarena Tequila compiled some tequila cocktail recipes from bartenders around the country--sans margaritas. Recipes and photos after the jump.
Note: the cocktails were all devised with Camarena Tequila, but you can use whatever tequila you like. Camarena retails for around 20 bucks a bottle.
1 1/2 oz Camarena Reposado Tequila
1 oz Fresh Lime Juice
3/4 oz Agave Nectar
1-2 slices Fresh Jalapeño
2 cubes Fresh Pineapple
1 pinch Fresh Cilantro
Muddle all ingredients, except tequila in a shaker tin. Add tequila and ice, shake nice & easy and strain over fresh ice in a double old fashioned glass. Garnish with a pineapple square, jalapeno slice and fresh cilantro.
