As lovely as the classic margarita may be, it’s nice to switch it up sometimes. With Cinco de Mayo right around the corner why not use the holiday to experiment with a few unique margarita recipes and maybe a few other tequila-based cocktails? Well, in case you need a little extra motivation when it comes to checking out the Cinco de Mayo-inspired drink recipes listed below, I’ve decided to also incorporate a giveaway into today’s Cinco de Mayo post. I’m giving away two Lushworthy t-shirts and all you have to do to enter is hit me up in the comments section with the name of the cocktail (you have to choose from the six below) that appeals to you most. Be sure to use a legit e-mail, so I can contact you if you win. Two winners will be chosen on Monday.
Good luck, and cheers to an enjoyable (though rainy for me) Cinco de Mayo!
