Cinco Cocktails

Abigail Diaz

¡Feliz Cinco de Mayo! 

The margarita is the #1 selling cocktail in North America and with its refreshing mixture of fresh lime juice and tequila, I understand why. The thing I love about margaritas is how versatile they can  taste and be presented. Although I love a good frozen margarita, the calories are not friendly for the summer bikini, the average 12 oz frozen margarita packs 675 calories. So I created four of my favorite margaritas that are packed with flavor and keep the waistline tight. All are freshly-made with easy ingredients that you can find at your local grocery store. The two ingredients that I love to make my margaritas with are Cointreau orange liqueur and Milagro Silver Tequila. Combining these two spirits work beautifully together to make a solid summer margarita.
