Vamos a Celebrar! Happy Cinco de Mayo!

The 1862 victory over the French army by Mexico is not only the reason for Cinco de Mayo but is a fact that is often overshadowed by the delightfully palate quenching discovery of the MARGARITA!!!  And to celebrate, we’re starting our blenders and whipping up a few batches of a homemade recipe we like to call the Sassafras – a sparkling combination of fresh mint, berries, lime juice, prosecco, and of course, tequila.  Are you ready to party?

The Ingredients (makes 1 serving):

  • 1-Cup of Crushed Ice
  • Fresh mint
  • ¼ Cup of Frozen Unsweetened Strawberries
  • ¼ Cup of Frozen Raspberries
  • ¼ Cup of Frozen Blackberries
  • 2-tbsp Lime juice
  • 1 shot (1.5-ounce) of Republic tequila
  • ¾-Cup of Prosecco or Sprite
  • Lime or Strawberry Wedge for Garnish

The Raw Materials:

  • A Blender
  • Margarita Glass

 

The Instructions:

  • Place all ingredients into a blender and blend until consistency is uniform and slushy
  • Pour into a margarita glass
  • Adorn with lime or strawberry garnish
  • Drink up and enjoy!

Happy Cinco de Mayo!!
