Happy Cinco de Mayo! Fun fact: Cinco de Mayo is NOT the celebration of Mexico’s independence. To some, it’s a national holiday with deep historical and cultural roots. To others, it means another great excuse to make delicious tacos and strong margaritas. Whether you’re celebrating with your family, at a party, or at home, here are a few recipes to get you in the Mayo mood.

For the most part, I don’t drink tequila anymore. Let me amend that statement: I don’t do tequila shots anymore. Tequila shots remind me of those hazy, study abroad days where I wasn’t yet embarrassed to be stumbling around and tripping over myself. (Alright, I still trip over myself – but usually stone cold sober.)
It’s been years since I’ve sipped on tequila – mostly out of appreciation for my liver – but when I found this blood orange infused tequila recipe, I knew it would be absolutely perfect for Cinco de Mayo!
