Cinco de Mayo. Spanish for 'Margarita Day'

Cinco de Mayo. Spanish for 'Margarita Day'
It's Cinco de Mayo, which means it's the only day of the year for an MB to consume a margarita. Since margarita mix is to margaritas what Taco Bell is to tacos, avoid like the Mexican flu. Here's how it's done:



MB Endorsed Margarita
2 parts Tequila (must be 100% agave, blanco is fine)
1 part Cointreau
1 part fresh lime juice

Shake all the ingredients and pour into a martini glass, rimmed very lightly with salt.

Southside (MB-Bastardized)

  • 2 oz gin
  • 1 oz fresh lemon juice
  • 1 sugar cube (or half teaspoon simple sugar)
  • soda water (if desired)

Place the sugar cube at the bottom of a lowball glass, add the fresh lemon juice, and mash with the back of a spoon. Fill two-thirds with ice and the gin and stir for at least 30 seconds. Add soda water, if desired, and give a quick stir. Garnish with a lemon wedge.
