4 DIY Cinco de Mayo Margaritas to Try

4 DIY Cinco de Mayo Margaritas to Try

When life gives you lemons, it means one thing: it's tequila time! This year, we’ve got some great Cinco De Mayo margarita recipes to share.

These Cinco De Mayo margarita recipes are sure to be a blast at your party!

Let’s just agree: it’s happy hour somewhere. As the lines between work/life become increasingly blurred as many of us are confined mostly to our homes, treating yourself to a delicious cocktail is a small way to send pleasure signals (read: I’m out of office) to your brain.


This Cinco De Mayo celebrate with a nod to a classic margarita by adding a healthy twist. When they said “it’s called balance, look it up” — this is exactly what they were talking about.

First off, what you’ll need for a thirst-quenching, people-pleasing Cinco De Mayo margarita: the original recipe, named for Dallas socialite Margarita Sames, who mixed her two favorite spirits together way back in 1948. The OG recipe calls for tequila, Cointreau, lime juice, and salt for the rim of a rocks glass.


With that as your base, the options for embellishment are endless. For those looking to slash calories and sugar content, ordering a skinny margarita has long been a no-brainer. But with some changes, it turns out your beverage can have even more health benefits.

Now, grab your shaker and let’s get into it. 

Option 1: Simple Swaps

Instead of loading up your drink with a sugar-laden orange liqueur, use fresh orange juice and a small amount of agave (if necessary).

Pro tip: making your margarita with a spicy kick usually negates the need for any sweetener.

Option 2: Add Fruit

From passion fruit to blood orange, there is so much scope to jazz up a margarita; all while getting your vitamins in. A win-win.

Option 3: Add Superfoods

It seems that these days, there’s a supplement or an adaptogen for everything. And just when you think you’ve seen it all, a margarita spiked with green tea or wheatgrass appears. That’s certainly one way to boost your antioxidant uptake.

Similarly, adding some avocado to your drink guarantees a helping of vitamins C, E, K, and B6, plus minerals, fiber, omega-3s, and beta-carotene. Sounds pretty super to us.

Option 4: Skip the Booze

Who says you can’t enjoy the tropical taste of a margarita if you’re teetotal? With the right additions, a delicious and clean version can easily be made sans alcohol. Cheers to that!
