If you’re celebrating Cinco de Mayo this year, then you need some tasty beverages to round out your menu. Although there are many drinks you can serve, margaritas are more or less required. But if you’re unsure about your talents as a mixologist, no worries. There are many margarita hacks to make your Cinco de Mayo much better.
Whether you like your margaritas classic, frozen, flavored, or non-alcoholic, these tips have you covered. There is a recipe sure to suit every taste. Best of all, they are all pretty simple to throw together — the most complicated part may be operating your blender.
In general, you will need some limes, tequila, and triple sec. Also, you will need coarse salt for the rim. (I learned this the hard way in college: table salt and plastic cups cannot make a passable margarita. It just produces a distinct grinding noise and nothing sticks to the rim). Beyond that, though, you can mix it up with different fruit flavors and even jalapeños to keep things interesting. Feeling fancy? Throw some lime slices in that glass to make your drink Instagram-worthy. Whatever food you serve, it will be a thousand times tastier with one of these drinks in your hand.
