TIP OF THE DAY: Tequila Shots For Cinco De Mayo or July 4th, July 4th & Bastille Day

Margarita mix is the best-selling cocktail mix in America. It’s easy to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with a Margarita.

But this year, how about a more authentic Mexican drink: Bandera Tequila Shots. “Bandera” means flag in Spanish; the drink comprises three shots in the colors of the Mexican flag: green, white and red.

You can set up several rows of the three colors of shots on a bar or table, or make them “to order.”

Thanks to Tequila Cazadores for this fun idea.
