Cocktail | Cinco de Mayo Margarita
Happy Cinco de Mayo! And what would a Cinco de Mayo be without a margarita? As a native Californian, where Cinco de Mayo has been celebrated since 1863 and where the Mexican culture is rich, I will take any excuse to cook up some tacos and have a margarita!
3 oz tequila
2 oz melon liqueur
1 oz orange liqueur
1 oz lime juice
1 oz simple sugar
salt and lime juice for glass rim
Rub the rim of your glass with a lime and dip in salt. Fill the chilled glass with ice. Add tequila, melon liqueur, orange liqueur, lime juice, and simple to a cocktail shaker and shake well. Pour into glass and add lime wedge. Enjoy!
