CINCO DE MAYO: A Non-Margarita Tequila Cocktail

The Margarita just happens to be the most famous tequila cocktail. But beyond the top three (including the Bloody Maria and the Tequila Sunrise) are many others.

Th recipe below is for a fruity tequila cocktail created by Milagro Tequila. Called Carpe Dia, Sieze The Day, it uses lower glycemic agave nectar as the sweetener.

Unlike the orange and lime flavored Margarita for a blackberry, lime and sage flavors (sage is delicious in cocktails). The añejo (aged) tequila provides complex flavors, which vary by distiller but can include brown spices, dried fruits, olives, nuts and toffee, among others.
