Cinco de Mayo has grown to be one of my favorite holidays of the year. If not for my love for tacos, then surely for my obsession for margaritas. While peach, mango, or strawberry flavors are all some of my favorites to combine together in a margarita, the key for me is to ensure that my margarita is frozen and only hosts sugar around its rim. Whether you're a fan of your margarita being frozen or simply on the rocks, having the perfect Cinco de Mayo margarita recipes for your festivities this year is an absolute must.
Though I'm not huge on the party scene, Cinco de Mayo seems to be one of those days that all of my caution gets thrown to the wind. I'm a big fan of Mexican food, so my frequency at the local cantina to indulge in a glass or two of an ice cold margarita with a bowl of chips and salsa on the side, is probably more often than anyone could imagine. The thing I love most about margaritas is the ability to literally put together any flavors you want and it still come out tasting delicious!
