Boozy Bebidas for Cinco de Mayo

Boozy Bebidas for Cinco de Mayo | EyeSwoon
SPIKED AND SPRINGY

The only essential elements for a successful Cinco de Mayo? Some fresh air, friends, and boozy beverages. You tackle the first two and we’re here to help with the third. These drinks are refreshing, spicy, in season, oh-so-pretty, and little off the beaten path, just the way we like ‘em. You may not know it yet, but simply feast your eyes and you’ll see why you really must add avocado to your Bloody Mary-esque cocktail, or take your tequila from a Himalayan salt shot glass. So many festive, springy things we’re dying to sip, right ahead. Bring on the margs, and then some!

AVOCADO AND LIME MARGARITA

Avocado, lime, and cilantro combine in a savory, creamy cocktail by Cook Republic. The fresh, crisp drink will no doubt be a hit among avo lovers. If the libation sounds vaguely familiar, it may just be because it was inspired by guac!

PRICKLY PEAR MARGARITAS

The pinkest. We were smitten as soon as we saw the saturated hue, but get this — the drink calls for prickly pear syrup (yum yum) and is portioned to serve six, making it perfect for entertaining. Find it on Camille Styles.
