giphyCinco de Mayo is finally here, but due to the day the holiday falls, this Mexican celebration is turning out to be somewhat of a tequila-themed tease. Yes, today is only a Thursday, but that means that tomorrow is Friday and the following day is Saturday, so there is really no excuse not to participate in today’s festivities. If you can’t handle full blown traditional tequila shots (we believe in you), honor Cinco de Mayo this year by shooting back a couple of these slushy margarita shots…


Slushy Margarita Shots: (makes 4)

  • 6 oz. tequila
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 2 tbsp. agave nectar
  • 1 c. ice, chopped in the blender
  • 1 lime wedge
  • salt, for rimming glasses
  • chopped strawberries, pineapple, blackberries and raspberries, for shots

In a blender, mix tequila, lime juice, agave nectar and ice. Run a lime wedge along the edge of each glass and rim with salt. Fill shot glasses with chopped fruit and pour over tequila mixture.
