6 Bartender-Approved Tequila Cocktails for Cinco de Mayo

You’re way past the days of store-bought Margarita mix.

Cinco de Mayo—perhaps the only socially-sanctioned occasion for wearing a sombrero and consuming a truly gluttonous amount of guacamole. And of course, tequila. Because your palate is far more discerning than the sickly-sweet store brand Marg mix of yore, we’ve tapped bartenders and mixologists across the country to bring you the best tequila cocktails they could craft in honor of this sacred day. From savory to spicy to everything in between, drink in these expertly concocted creations. And maybe this year, leave the sombrero at home.
