Cinco de Mayo
On dedicated party days, you need a drink that you can sip rather than gulp. Getting through the day with pleasure and great flavors is paramount but keeping your wits is a good idea as well.
This cocktail offers plenty of fresh, fruity, and semi-tart flavors. It's a great party cocktail and can even be made as a punch to be served to your guests when they arrive. This cocktail relies upon quality Tequila and the freshest fruit juices you can find. Better yet, juice your own fruit.
1.5 oz. Blanco, 100% Agave Tequila
2 oz. tangerine (or orange juice)
2 oz. papaya juice
The juice of half a lime
1/2 teaspoon of tamarind concentrate
Well the obvious implications suggest that this cocktail is to be served on Cinco de Mayo but it is perfect for any spring or summer day.
Place all of the ingredients in a shaker with a handful of ice and shake vigorously. Pour into a highball glass with ice and garnish with a lime wheel. Enjoy.
Feel free to use orange juice in place of the tangerine juice but please don't use añejo Tequila in place of the blanco – it will wreck the cocktail.
