Cinco de Mayo Margarita

Cinco de Mayo is an annual celebration in Mexico, held on May 5. This date is to commemorate their Army’s victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla in 1862, under the leadership of General Zaragoza. The victory of the smaller Mexican force against a larger French force was a boost to morale for the Mexicans.

A nice and tasty drink with a strong base of Tequila can help us celebrate this day 😉

A Margarita is a sour-style cocktail and normally mixes Tequila with Cointreau (something sweet and fruity) and fresh lime juice (something sour). In our “special of the day” we choose for Amaro instead of the orange liqueur. We do add a little extra orange bitterness to compensate.

Note : Always taste and adjust while preparing your cocktail. Example : Limes can be very different in acidity and when you use another brand of amaro, the taste can also be very different. At my home, we are used to pretty sour cocktails, since my wife is diabetic. If this drink is a bit to sour for you, just add a half barspoon of agave syrup.

May 5 Margarita

5 cl Tequila Blanco
2 cl Amaro Montenegro
2 cl Fresh lime juice
½ bs Orange bitters

Add everything into a shaker with lots of ice. Shake vigorously for 20 seconds and double strain into a nice coupe. No garnish, just get some nachos and cheese to accompany this drink.
