Cinco de Mayo!

Hi friends!

It’s May 5th, Cinco de Mayo. Widely celebrated throughout the United States and Mexico, and one of the best holidays to test out your culinary abilities. By that, I don’t mean a trip through the Taco Bell drive thru – nice try!

Taco bar, fresh pico and guacamole and churro bites are just a few of my favourites!
Take out that tequila, dust off the grill and get cookin’. I’ve put together a few of my favourites and I’m sharing an amazing Margarita Sangria recipe that is a bona fide crowd pleaser!

Margarita Sangria
Yield: 8 servings
Ingredients 
  • 1 750 ml bottle dry white wine
  • 1 1/2 cup tequila
  • 1 cup triple sec
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 orange, sliced
  • 2 limes, sliced
  • A few stems of cilantro (see Note)

  1. In a large pitcher combine the white wine, tequila, triple sec, orange juice and lime juice. Add the orange slices and lime slices, and the cilantro.
  2. Chill for at least 2 hours. Serve over ice. Salt the rims of the glasses, if desired.

Note: The longer the sangria sits with the cilantro, the stronger the flavor will be. If desired, you can add the cilantro right before serving.

Hope you have the chance to relish in the deliciousness of this holiday. Or at the very least, sip a little sangria watching the sunset. Ole!
