Margarita mix is the best-selling cocktail mix in America. It’s easy to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with a Margarita.
This year, forget the Margarita mix and offer Bandera Tequila Shots. “Bandera” means flag in Spanish; the drink comprises three shots in the color of the Mexican flag: green, white and red.
Bandera Tequila Shots Recipe
1. For green shot: 1 part blanco tequila. If you want to make the lime shot more green like the flag, add a drop of food color.
2. For white shot: 1 part lime juice/1 part blanco tequila.
3. For red shot: 2 parts blanco tequila, and 1 part tomato juice.
You can set up the different-colored shots on a bar or table, or make them “to order.”
July 4th Tequila Shots: To turn this into Red, White & Blue tequila shots for July 4th, use a drop of blue food color instead of green food color in Step 1.
