Cinco de Mayo, the annual celebration on May 5th commemorating the anniversary of Mexico’s victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla in 1862.
In America, it has been a tradition to pay homage by celebrating with Mexico’s iconic National cocktail, the Margarita; a sweet and salty beverage that combines a few simple ingredients that will have you dancing into the wee hours of the night – sometimes without a shirt and wearing a sombrero.
To celebrate this famed Mexican festival, this year we’re putting our own spin on the Margarita with The ROQ-A-Rita, an all-natural. ONE ROQ- infused margarita that you can make at home with just 5 simple ingredients.
Here’s what you need for our ROQ-A-RITA
- Limes (roughly 2 for every finished cocktail)
- Agave syrup
- ONE ROQ Vodka
- Limes & Salt
- Squeeze limes into a shaker (about 2 limes are needed for every cocktail you want to serve)
- ½ part water
- ½ part agave syrup
- 1 part tequila
- 1 part ONE ROQ Vodka (or 2 parts ONE ROQ if you don’t wish to add in tequila…but what’s the fun in that?)
Give your margarita blend a taste to see if it needs any tweaks.
