TIP OF THE DAY: Tequila Shots For Cinco De Mayo or July 4th

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
Shake and strain each ingredient into separate shot glasses:

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.

Thanks to Tequila Cazadores for this fun idea.
