Mexican Drinks

A Cinco de Mayo party is the perfect time to put on your sombrero or dancing shoes and FIESTA

Since we already shared our favorite Mexican party food, it’s time to kick things up a notch with our best Mexican cocktails!

If you only make one Mexican cocktail recipe, make a margarita! They can be made in SO many different flavors — there’s sure to be a favorite for every guest at the party.

And if you really want to relive your college days, make a tray of beachy rumchata pudding shots!

What You’ll Need to Make a Mexican Cocktail

Clean off your stemware and grab a few classic bar tools so you’re ready to play bartender!

The most used glasses for Mexican cocktail drinks are margarita glasses (perfect for sipping) and hurricane glasses (be sure to add a straw).

A jigger guarantees accurate measurements, while a cocktail shaker or bar spoon will ensure every ingredient is thoroughly mixed.

But, who are we kidding? Your blender is the true hero for frozen Mexican drinks, blending ice to a perfectly slushie consistency.

Finally, Mexican cocktails are all about the garnishes — a salted rim, a slice of citrus, and even some fresh fruit! Have a cutting board and knife handy as well.
