Ay Caramba! 3 Delicioso Cinco De Mayo Cocktail Recipes

It's well known (thanks to our all-encompassing margarita guide), that at R29 we never fail to go all-out for any holiday that involves drinking. Some may call us obsessive — we say enthusiastic — but regardless, we'll always have you covered when it comes to celebrating. And, we know that it may not jive with everyone's schedule to launch an all-day bar crawl of the city's best marg joints today (or, maybe you prefer to do your imbibing in the comfort of your own home). Thus, with the help of the cocktail connoisseurs at Milagro Tequila, we've pulled together three refreshing bev recipes you can DIY, tax- and tip-free. Hot bartender (unfortunately) not included.
