Cinco de Margarita: 15 Creative Takes on One Classic Cocktail

The beginning of May is just around the corner, and you know what that means? Cinco de Mayo! Whether you love this holiday for the piñatas, nachos, or tequila, we know there’s one thing everyone can get behind – a delicious margarita! Here are 15 ways to mix it, shake it, and blend it up for the fifth of May.

1. Blood Orange Margarita: Don’t blood oranges make every cocktail better? :) (via White on Rice Couple)

2. Coco Pina Margarita: If you like pina margaritas, and getting caught in the rain… We are totally down for this twist on two yummy summery cocktails. (via Host the Toast)



3. Cucumber Honeydew Margarita Popsicles: Just reading the title of this makes us feel refreshed! We think this combo would also be pretty darn good in slushy form. (via Endless Simmer)

4. Avocado Margarita: It’s like guacamole and a margarita had a baby! Love the idea of adding some spicy jalapeños to the mix. (via Cookin’ Canuck)

5. Grapefruit Margarita: This citrusy take on the margarita might be our new favorite sipper for brunch. (via Just Putzing)

6. Strawberry Breakfast Margarita: No, we’re not suggesting you start hitting the bottle with breakfast. This margarita-inspired shake is loaded with nutrients to start your day off right. (via Steph’s Bite by Bite)



7. Cranberry Margarita: This fragrant cocktail is packed with fresh cranberries, strawberries, and mint. Yum! (via D*mn Delicious)

8. Watermelon Margarita Poptails: Remember these little darlings from last year’s Cinco de Mayo? We particularly love the sea salt and lime on the rim. (via Brit + Co.)

9. Whole Fruit Margaritas: Want the blended style but without your drink getting watery? This recipe blends whole slices of fruit (without the rind, of course) rather than squeezing the juice. (via Better Recipes)



10. Strawberry Basil Margarita: Strawberries and basil are two of our very favorite things here at Brit HQ, so the pair of them together in margarita form is definitely our jam. (via Food Babbles)

11. Sunrise Margaritas: Mango, peach nectar, and fresh orange slices make this sunrise drink creamy, dreamy, and just desperate for a cocktail umbrella. (via Sing for Your Supper)

12. Tangerine Margaritas: (via Spicy Southern Kitchen)



13. Pomegranate Margaritas: Think the pomegranate is sooo 2010? We beg to differ! (via How Sweet Eats)

14. Ginger Cilantro Margaritas: For a more savory take on the margarita, we think this mix would go perfectly with savory arepas. (via The Gouda Life)



15. Orange Vanilla Margaritas: It’s like a creamsicle in margarita form. Nom. (via Girli Chef)
