Get your girls, get some music, and get to it this Cinco De Mayo. Did somebody say tequila? Let’s get started on these top 10 drinks for Cinco De Mayo. You can thank me later!
1. Pina Colada Made Simple
Ah, pina colada. We all love the classic blend of flavor, but with this simple recipe, all you’ll need is pineapple juice and tequila. BAM! Have you ever had a brilliant concoction made so quick? Cinco De Mayo comes at a different time for all of us. If you’re in college, that will bring you to finals week, (just about), if not the last day of classes. These recipes are meant to be simple, cheap, and easy. After all, we want you drinkin’ not spendin’! This May, your dorm or apartment on campus will be the place to be.
2. Tickle Me Pink
For this next irresistible tequila drink, you’ll need grapefruit juice and tequila over ice. Throw a lemon wedge on the corner of the cup, and you’re golden. We’ll have you laughin’ and forgetting about finals in minutes. There is something so pretty and classic about a pink drink. The colors surely make for a good photo!
When it comes to tequila drinks, or really any type of alcoholic beverage, everyone has different tastes. Adding a fruit juice is a standard way to get the bitter taste of tequila combined with something fruity. Two- ingredient tequila drinks may seem challenging to come across, but there is a recipe for every taste bud. Keeping it simple with just 2 ingredients actually can be more fun than you think. If you are really feeling it, you can do sugar or salt around the rim. That is if you already have it laying around the house.
4. Strawberry Savory
For this next recipe, you’ll actually need 3 ingredients, if you count fruit. This recipe can be swapped out for some other fruit that you enjoy if it isn’t strawberries. The two ingredients you’ll need are club soda and tequila, plus the strawberries of course! Drink up, girls, because who doesn’t love strawberry?
5. Cranberry Crazed
When I think of cranberry juice, I always think of having trouble peeing, or being sick. Sorry, it’s true! Cranberry juice is sweet and obviously has a bold taste, making it the perfect combination with tequila. Half cranberry juice and half tequila poured with or without ice is the best drink for Cinco De Mayo! One of the best things about 2 ingredient tequila drinks is that you really don’t need much, and you’ll be saving time. There are plenty of recipes out there that require 5 plus ingredients, when keeping the drinks basic and simple results in the same taste, if not better!
6. Raspberry ‘N Lime
Combinations for tequila drinks are endless. One of the best recipes is one that combines a little bit of everything, and that’s the raspberry and lime cocktail. You’ll need to squeeze 1-2 limes in the cup along with sparkling water (your choice of flavor), or unflavored. Take a handful of raspberries and add them to the cup, using a spoon to equally mix the flavors. Ladies, it’s time to wine and dine!
7. Blueberry Bliss
Adding fruit to tequila drinks is a blessing in disguise. If you are anything like me, you get buzzed and tipsy off of only one drink. It is important to combine the alcohol with something to even it out so to speak, like fruit. For this recipe, you are going to need club soda and blueberries. You can even use blueberry puree. These drinks are classic!
8. Blackberry Drink
This blackberry infused drink will have you buzzed, relaxed, and impressed. For this creation, take 10-15 blackberries and mash them with a spoon or fork in a bowl, until the substance is liquid. Combine the contents with tequila, making the glass half full with each substance. The taste of the liquid blackberry is the perfect balance with the intensity of tequila. I personally love the subtle flavor of blackberry. Enjoy this fruity drink and don’t drink too much! Have fun!
9. Bloody Mary
When I think of bloody mary, I always think of horror movies. This drink is a classic for so many reasons, and there are so many versions of this recipe. Tomato vegetable juice cocktail? I think yes. Bloody mary drinks are a tradition and classic fan fave, or so I hear. This may not be for everyone, but hey, it surely will shock your taste buds! The two ingredients are pretty standard and hopefully won’t cost more than $10.00.
Last but certainly not least, is the lemonade and tequila creation. I hope someone in your friend group is a fan because this level of sweetness is too good to pass. You can choose the original lemonade or substitute for pink lemonade, and go a little heavy on the lemonade and a little light on the tequila, for a sweeter taste. Enjoy this spiked lemonade! You’ll be feeling like it is summer, even in May, with this drink.
